Re: Cycling girls in Iran

Just on a contrary to Joanna I had very bad experience cycling Iran as a solo woman. And I know I'm not the only one. I was attacked and nearly raped on a deserted strech of road south of Qeshm island. The guy on a motorbike was annoying stopping by me a few times despite of telling him to go and wh...

Re: Embassy report: Iran visa in Dubai, UAE

Im going to apply for the iranian visa in Dubai next week, but have no idea about fingerprints - is i to be done at the embassy or have to go to the police station? If so, that would mean one should dedicate 2 days to do it as the main police station is far. Also - any idea if women have to wear sca...

Re: Khasab-Bandar Abbas ferry

I got it confirmed from NFC ferry operator in Oman that the ferries to Iran had been suspended. Unfortunately!
That would be good to update the map.

Re: 1 night duly registered out of 3: not enough

Maybe useful adding - after one month in Uzbekistan mostly on a bike I was asked to show my last registration slip every time apart from one. Hotels would not accept me if there was a gap bigger then 3 nights, one time I was rejected becasue hotel claimed I have to have slip for each and every night...

Re: Nice Hostel Scam in Tashkent

I am also surpised about bad review on Sunrise hostel, cause I made it there and liked it after bad experience with Topchan hostel (many travellers' faourite), but didnt use any taxi service. I had bad experience with nearly all the taxis in UZ though and I would say be prepared for that. They overc...

Re: Overland trip from Iran to Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is not a problem for ATM, although mostly for VISA, not MC.
UZ better to have USD to exchange. Last week I met travellers in Uz, they didn't have a smallest note of USD to exchange, just ATM card which caused problems.. better avoid it.

Re: LOI from Guesthouse in Samarkand

On a side note.. Topchan hostel in Tashkent prepared LOI for me much cheaper then other offers, but as a place I would never like to stay there again. Kids running around, staff occupying TV area.. Left after one night.

Re: 1 night duly registered out of 3: not enough

All of this registrations here in Uz so tricky. I am by bike as well, came through Dostyk border from Osh. First night in Andijan hotel, was lucky to find one for just 12 USD, then cycled to Fergana, where I have friends. I knew about the rule of Fergana valley, having to register every night but sp...

Re: Dostyk Crossing (Kyrgyzstan into Uzbekistan)

Crossed on October 1st on a bike. Very good experience, they let me in through a gate in front of others, then again after I filled in the customs paper.. no single look in my bags, phone, camera or medicine.. simply-that is all, thank you!
