There is some big CIS head of government meeting in town so our hotel (swarming with secret service types and dignitaries) would only offer us the offical rate.
The aforementioned ‘iPhone’ shop in the Russian Bazaar was easy to find and efficient, offering me 17 for my $100 bill.
Other managed to get a rate of 15 with our tour bus driver


This is exactly the situation i've been to, during these types of events oftentimes the WHOLE city will be cordoned off (absolutely no joke), and being stuck in the city is a surreal expirience. Most locals are forced to stay at home, and some are subjected to participate in "Chare".

I got 18 manat to 1 USD at the Russian Bazaar on October 20. Just went in and asked a vendor where to exchange money; didn’t negotiate. I changed $60, but really only needed $20, maaaaybe $30, for 5ish days.

Are manats easily used or exchanged for Uzbek or tajik currency in Uzbekistan or Tajikistan?

No. Sure it’s not impossible, but I don’t think you’d find anyone to buy them outside the country besides of other travellers

Slightly delayed but I was getting 18.6 manat to 1 AUD in Russian Bazaar on 6th of November. Easy enough to find places if you walk around the periphery inside.
