Re: Security situation in Xinjiang - leave your thoughts

It seems the situation for tourists in Xinjiang has got a lot more restrictive: We are in Kashgar, we arrived here from Kyrgyzstan travelling by public transport.

Re: Caspian sea ferry updates & questions

Hi! We have the LOI letter from the London embassy for entering Turkmenistan on a transit visa and are trying to get the Caspian Sea ferry.

However the border guards were super helpful and friendly, just seemed to want to talk ...
