Re: Shavat-Dashoguz border crossing report

So I went through the border on September 17th and it was a breeze. In the parking lot on the Uzbek side some guy exchanged my remaining sums into manats. He gave me roughly 1 USD / 8 manats which isn't great but I did not make a fuss as I wasn't exchanging a lot of money and was mostly happy to get...

Re: Shavat-Dashoguz border crossing report

Hi!
I will cross into Turkmenistan in five days but I caught a cold (nothing major, running nose mostly).
I understand they check your body temperature upon entry. What could happen if it is a little high?

Re: World Nomad Games 2018: reviews

Hi Steven, I was there for three days as well (two days in Kyrchyn and one at the Hippodrome and the wrestling arena), and I kind of disagree with your last point. For the sports competitions at least, the schedule that was posted on their website was fairly well followed, so you had an idea of what...

Re: Possible to buy tickets on Uzbek Railways Website?

I went today to Tashkent station with my printed vouchers (бланк заказа, the document you get after buying online tickets that are not e-tickets). Not sure how to proceed I went to the booth labeled Electronic tickets (Електрон билеты or something approaching) showed my vouchers to the lady who almo...

Re: Tashkent airport: reports and Q&A

Arrived this morning at Tashkent airport and unexpectedly I believe I beat my record for the least amount of time needed to get out of an airport. I was among the first passengers to get out of the bus and into the terminal, our flight was the only one arriving at this time so there was no line at p...

Oqsaroy in Tashkent: reports and Q&A

It's kind of a staple and a running joke now, there shall be at least one statue of Lenin for me to photograph in every city I visit during my travels in the Stans. And, as I'll be in Tashkent a week from now, naturally I looked into the matter. I know there have been three successive Lenin statues ...

Two days gap between Kochkor and Cholpon-Ata

Hi! Sorry for this very specific subject. I am currently in Kochkor. I'm on a horse riding tour that ends on August 31 and I will be in Cholpon-Ata for WNG on September 2 (or 3, as I couldn't secure tickets for the opening ceremony). Therefore I have a two to three days gap to fill, anf I was consid...

Re: Uzbekistan e-visa Q&A payment with mastercard

Pay with mastercard
And not with Visa card

The website only shows Visa option, I guess they don't have an agreement with MasterCard.
But you might as well give it a try. If it fails you won't pay anything and you will just have lost a few minutes.
