According to this post in Livejournal, one year ago such prices were to transfer: For the taxi - 25000 soms per person which is double less you were offered Bus between two towns - 13000-15000 soms. It will visit each village on his ...

For travellers who might want to take this route – the road is now in awful condition (worse than the Pamir Highway!), and takes around 8 hours. I travelled it in July 2012, and had a good, quick driver: we 'only' needed 7.5 hours of accelerating/decelerating/bumping/hitting the ground... We saw mini-buses and a few buses on the road; they took something ...

Indian or Ceylon tea is very popular in the post-USSR countries. Here's an example. The black varieties taste different from what we know in the Western world. I find it to be close to the Earl Grey tea. Generally in the USSR they didn't have varieties, they had colors of the packaging: golden Indian tea and green Indian tea (both blacks, I'm not familiar ...

Ahmed Tea is very popular in the Central Asian republics/Azerbaijan, it's a British tea company that should be readily available. Most of my friends (and I myself) use this tea. They also drink a lot of granulated tea in Kazakhstan, or at least the family I lived with did. Kazakhstan usually drinks tea black and with or without milk. There are also several ...

Turns out there's no direct easy way. Best way is to get a ticket to Beynou, and change an hour later for the train to Kungrad. From there local Uzbekistan transport will get one closer. I ended up getting a shared taxi from Kungrad to Nukus (10,000 soms), then decided to go via Khiva. Nukus to Khiva was 25000 soms in a shared taxi, and from there bus ...

Your best bet is going to be shared taxis. I've taken a taxi from Khiva to Urgench, and the problem isn't finding a taxi, it's finding one that is almost full. The issue is that it's a big culture of shared taxis there. You negotiate your seat to Urgench, and then wait for the other seats to be negotiated. When it's full, the car drives to the ...
