MIND THE SUN!
The sun is really strong in summer time. The temperature can rise up to +38C or higher. So do not forget to take something to cover your head to avoid sunstroke.
UZBEKISTAN WEATHER WILL SURPRISE YOU
Uzbekistan has extremely continental climate: it could be very hot in day time and cold at night. You can wear T-shirt during the day, but after sunset it’s getting cold and a warm jacket is required.
It’s better to plan to visit Uzbekistan during the shoulder season: March – June; August – November. It’s still really warm and sunny. Uzbekistan is sunny country and usually winters are very mild. Sometimes it ever snows!
IT ISN’T POSSIBLE TO RENT A CAR
Renting a car to travel from Tashkent to Khiva sounds like a great idea. It gives the freedom to stop in towns along the way and not have to rely on train schedules to get around. But unfortunately it isn’t possible to rent a car in Uzbekistan (according to the law).
The only option is to take a car with driver for some days. The next problem is that not all drivers speak English. But if you book a car in our company an English-speaking driver is guaranteed.
A RAIL PASS CAN SAVE YOU MONEY
A Rail Pass is a great way to travel without spending tons of money. Also you will save time as compare with travelling by car. One of the best train option in Uzbekistan is “Afrosiab” train. It’s modern, comfortable and moves at a speed of 210 km an hour.
Unfortunately Uzbekistan doesn’t give an opportunity to book and purchase tickets online. And we can help you to solve this matter.
DON’T ONLY VISIT THE POPULAR SPOTS
That being said, you shouldn’t allow for only the popular spots in your trip. Make a point to hit up some more overlooked areas where you may run into some locals. Often, you’ll get a better glimpse of the culture of the country you’re in, and you’ll have a story to tell that few others do.
For shopaholics Uzbekistan will be an absolute treat. Small and big, well known or local bazaar you will love them all. You can find there everything you needed, wanted and even what you didn’t suspect about. Time to find some local gems on this side of the world!
When choosing drinks for the night, go local. Uzbekistan has many local brands of wine that are worth trying while you are here. Staying in Samarkand don’t miss an opportunity to visit Khovrenko winery where it’s possible to taste the finest Uzbek wines.
Not many hotels in Uzbekistan have elevators, so you’ll want to make sure that you’re capable of really lugging your suitcase around. This goes double for traveling by train as you’ll encounter similar moments. So carefully consider what you really need and cut out the rest to save yourself the hassle.
YOU WILL PROBABLY REALLY LIKE IT HERE
No actually, you will LOVE it here! You will see beautiful sunsets, amazing architecture and feel the charm of the East. You will see all the best things Uzbekistan has to offer.
