Re: Q&A: Door to Hell

Hi Gary, We crossed the Dashoguz border yesterday and it all went very easily. Quite busy with locals but as a tourist the border control agents constantly made sure that we were the first that got to the counter and on the bus (which also gave us a bit of an uncomfortable feeling but we just went ...

Re: which border should I choose to get to UZ

If you're doing Khiva, I would exit at Dashogus. You can take the night from Ashgabat to Mary/Bayramaly and back. Not much sleep, but it's efficient. Then visit Dashogus (people have done it by train), and hopefully add in a stop at Konye Urgench as well if you do it by vehicle. Thanks for advice B...
