Travel in Central Asia stans during Ramadan

Postby P123 » Mon Mar 14, 2016 8:34 pm

Hello!

Ramadan this year is from 6th June 2016 to 5th July 2016.
I'm planning a trip for this summer, which would see me arriving in the middle of this.

Are there any special considerations to take, or anything I should be aware of?
I have never been to a Muslim country during Ramadan, although I have read generic advice for travellers about it.
I haven't figured out my itinerary yet, but possibly Turkmenistan>Uzbekistan>Kyrgyzstan.

Thanks!

Hello,

Last year we visited Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan during Ramadan and there was nothing to signal. Restaurants and important cultural sites were open and we kind of forgot about Ramadan until the day we arrived late in our hotel in Bishkek and the owners were having a big party for Ramadan and invited us to join them. Nice food (for once ;))!

Central Asia is not Muslim in the same sense as the Middle East: eating during the day and consuming alcohol continues throughout Ramadan.

Any special issues traveling to Stans during Ramadan? Access to places to stay? Places to eat during the day?

No issues, everything remains open.
