Re: Mongolia with own car (deposit needed ?)

Just drive past Tsaganuur, some bad stories on how they treat tourists. Thanks god we bought the insurance ($30) On the first police stop after crossing the border between Khov and Ulgii we were asked just for the insurance and nothing else so it was a very well spent money! You can also buy insuran...

Re: Off the beaten path eateries

Well, I think Central Asia in general is a good test scenario for your iron stomach.

We were not so impressed with what we saw, and we did like the food and atmosphere from the good restaurants, which is usually cheap too.

Re: Mongolia in 10 days... Is it worth?

I would book a Gobi tour, which is a week I think or at least 5 days. And then you can perhaps have an additional trip to Erdene Zuu monastary, perhaps combined with something in Orkhon valley or some other natural sight in the vicinity. Or a separate trip to the Ghengis Khan statue. So Gobi trip + ...

Re: Petrol, gasoline and diesel in Pamir and Tajikistan

Gasoline is easier to find. Also (definitely) in Uzbekistan.
But both types of fuel can be of poor quality.

Re: Any way to legally bring a drone to Turkmenistan?

I would check out options to ship it to your next destination, after Turkmenistan. Uzbekistan isnt great either.

Re: VPNs in Xinjiang

Why not already get your Tajikistan e-visa? To be on the safe side. Once Chinese customs touch your phone I would consider it as "lost". Yes you can still use it, but there is probably some sort of spyware installed, and your VPNs might be gone. So I would, maybe even before but at least a...

Re: Traveling with dogs in Iran, Pakistan

Pakistan will probably have less rules. I don't know how it is, but I know people have been travelling through Pakistan with dogs. They probably don't like them so much, but it also means they are scared of them and don't want to inspect your vehicle. On average, in muslim areas (also in India) they...

Re: Given reason for Iranian visa rejection

Put Google Translate app on your phone, download the Persian / Farsi language, select the language, and put it on camera mode. Hopefully that works.

Re: Kazakhstan for vegetarians/vegans

I remember in Oral there was also some variety in restaurants. So for example a small sushi place or pizzeria. So I think that would work for vegetarians.
I can't remember if the supermarkets had the Russian style buffet where you can buy in weight, and have some veg options.

Re: Diesel quality in Kazakhstan?

I can't answer that. We have a very simple diesel engine, and we just filled up everywhere in Kyrgyzstan. I was happy not to worry about it anymore unlike Uzbekistan or parts of Tajikistan. On average, I would say Kyrgyzstan is better organised than the surrounding countries. With some exceptions, y...
