Re: Wheelchair access in Uzbekistan

Well, I doubt that any place in Khiva has such a thing as a real barrier-free toilet, so it will depend on the skills of the wheelchair user to use "normal" facilities. When taking the train, AFAIK there is no barrier-free access. I assume everyone will try to make things possible, so if t...

Re: ATM situation in Uzbekistan

You'll certainly not be able to exchange Korean Won anywhere in Uzbekistan. USD is most widely accepted, GBP and EUR works as well (the rate is a bit better with USD), sometimes, exchange offices will accept RUB and JPY.

Re: Uzbek Railways Website Q&A

Kazhak government forcing users to install surveillance software?

Hi, It appears that you cannot access the internet in Kazakhstan anymore if you don't have installed a certificate which essentially enables the government to monitor your traffic.
