Re: Best way to see Hotan, Kashgar, Kuqa...

Many thanks for your replies.

There could be any problems for foreigners travelling alone in Xinjang, in your opinion?

Re: Best way to see Hotan, Kashgar, Kuqa...

Many thanks for the replies. So Should I really expect “utter mayhem” from Chinese railways? To be honest, with all this hype on infrastructure development in China, I was expecting a good service. Am I too optimistic? A couple of weeks ago I saw with my eyes the situation of railways in Uzbekistan,...

Best way to see Hotan, Kashgar, Kuqa...

Hi there, I’m planning a trip between the cities of Hotan and Urumqi, with the possibility to extend the trip to Dunhuang (if possible). Probably I’ll arrive in Hotan from Almaty with a flight, and I was wondering which could be the best way to see cities like Yarkand, Kashgar, Kuqa (maybe Aksu) and...

Re: Bukhara-Tashkent

Ok, many thanks. So the train would be the best option for every step of the journey? (Tashkent-Samarkand, Samarkand-Bukhara, Bukhara-Tashkent). Thanks again PS: I'll travel with another person, so I believe that it would be ok taking one compartment on a night train (for the Bukhara-Tashkent step).

Bukhara-Tashkent

Hello there, I'm planning my trip in Uzbekistan - I'll be there in August - and I'd like to ask you which is the best way to reach Tashkent from Bukhara. During my first days I'll travel between Tashkent and Samarkand, probably by train or bus, and surely I'll spent a couple of days also in Bukhara....

Re: Bishkek - Almaty: bus and border crossing

Many thanks for the answer.

You're referring to mini bus leaving from Bishkek station, right? I have to go from Bishkek bus station to Almaty (only one-way).

Another question: the taxis at the border are expensive?

Thanks again
