Changing Uzbek Som in Almaty

Post by irishmcbride »

Despite my best efforts, i've exited Uzbekistan with about $40 worth of Som. Is there anywhere anyone knows of in Almaty to change it to Tenge or USD, or will I be able to change it back in the UK?

Yes, there is one place that is famous for that in Almaty

ТОО ".. X - C H A N G E .." Zheltoksan 144-76, between Zhambul and Kabanbai Batyr streets. Bad rate obviously but at least you'll get some beer money for it.

I could actually also use some Uzbek sum as I am going there soon. If you don't mind making the effort to come out here, I can exchange it for tenge. I sent you a pm with my telephone number.
