Btw is it easy to sleep in PlatzKart wagon?
Last year I travelled in Platskartny from Tashkent to Khiva -
it was the best sleep I had in 5 months in Central Asia!

In the open carriages there are many families, and for the sake of the sleep of their small children they make sure everybody keeps quiet, Plus the slow going train rocked me to sleep like a baby...

So for me it is definitely a Yes for Platskartny.

Safe travels!

Well - do you really want to leave at 4am?? ;-)
Have you considered flying to Urgench and then working your way back east to TAS? Or have you booked your plane ticket already?

I already booked flight... Cuz for the rest of the trip I needed to follow that path


I wouldn't mind boarding at 4am..I would sleep in Bukhara till 3am and then to the 1st class compartment... Such a pity they don't explain why they don't sell tickets from Bukhara..

This is still true today in May 2024. no trains from bukhara to Khiva available. now you can book Bukhara to Khiva 17 days in advance and the rest of the network from 45 days. so today i booked from Navoy to Khiva hoping to change it later or board in Navoy or board in Bukhara trying to warn in advance abt the situation. I just don't understand why they dont fix it, maybe it's because they re afraid that travel agents would buy in bulk? but like this they prevent true travellers from using the train. anyway it's ok I will find the way
