Re: Qalai Khumb accommodation Q&A

We stayed in Guesthouse Roma, as well as a travel group on a booked jeep tour did. It is very easy to find. Follow the main road, direction Langar.

Re: Government-issued invitation letter required for Chinese Visa?

Hi there,

The Letter of Invitation (LOI) has to be issued by a Chinese Tourist Agency that is accredited by the Chinese Government.

It contains dates, hotel names, cities to be visited and - most important a red stamp.

Hope that helps

Re: Driving through Uzbekistan - time limit?

Hi there You can easily drive from city to city in one day: Samarkand - Buchara - Nukus. We did so, just the other direction I'd recommend to travel Nukus - Moynaq, then stay at the yurt camp. End of the main road, sign, to the right. From Moynaq you can go to Beyneu. This will be a very long trip o...
