MaureenI love exploring new places, seeing first hand the sites and learning about the people, culture and history. I enjoy running, eating dark chocolate, and reading.
SevaraHi, I am Sevara from Uzbekistan. I love travelling and that's the reason I am here I think, I am a part time guide also. I love music, nature and sleeping😂
based on 3 experiences
Visited Uzbekistan as a single brown female. There were certain challenges of language and being hoodwinked by the travel agent, railway personnel etc. But overall it's an beautiful country with majestic historical places like Registan Square in Samarkhand. I visited Samarkhand, Bukhara, Khiva and Tashkent. The magnificent historical architecture is overwhelming. Given half a chance I would go there again.
Uzbekistan is fab! I went for business but managed to fit in quite a bit of tourism too. Everyone is very friendly and I felt very safe walking around on my own. People aren't pushy trying to sell to you, which I really like. The underground metro in Tashkent was one of my favourite parts and the older buildings along the Silk Road. In terms of clothing it's classed as a Muslim country but it doesn't require you to keep covered as other countries might. I would still recommend keeping shoulders covered anyway and avoiding short skirts etc. When I wasn't working, I wore jeans and a top.
I was in Uzbekistan solo in June this year, it was really hot through the day. I went for 10 days. I flew to Tashkent and then jumped straight on a flight to Khiva where I spent 3 days which was really too long I thought unless you want to go to the Aral Sea. Then I worked my way by train and taxi back to Tashkent. Bukhara, Samarkand then back to Tashkent for a couple of days. Total trip was 10 days. Trains are plentiful around there and easy.
