Talking about the rates between USD and Uzbek Som : I had 6.400 for Tashkent, Samarkand and Bukhara. They never proposed more and I never pushed too much to hae a better rate.

@travellex : In Bukhara, I am pretty sure they offer the rates for Euro at 6,700 - 7,000. Not for US Dollars.

I was also offered 6900 for a dollar in Bukhara last week. I had plenty of cash so didn't take it.

It's floating between 7400 and 7800 for a buck now. Also every small shop will be willing to change. In every small town, rates are (almost) the same. Don't let them rip you off accepting the "this high rate is for tashkent" excuse

But I have big news: they just released a bill of 10.000 som!!! About one week old now. Hurray!

What about euros? There are any problem exchanging them? I'm from an euro country, so I planned to pre-exchange some money in USD just in case, but should I bring all my money in USD?

Hi Miss Sheep, it's written here: http://caravanistan.com/money/uzbekistan/

I am wondering: what should I do to make the navigation better, so you can find this info without having to ask for it. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi,

The black market rate is now $1 = 8200som !

But in most popular exchange places you'll only be able to get 8000.

At border crossings, (inside Uzbekistan ) the exchange rate is max 7800 but you can get all of it in 10,000 bills if you bargain for it ! It's awesome. I guess in the near future most bazaars will also use these 10,000 bills.

Regards
