Tips

  • The markets of Bukhara are the best places to buy inexpensive cotton blend carpets and also the more costly, wool and silk carpets.
  • Buy a bottle of excellent Uzbek vodka which is reasonably priced at around $3 a bottle.
  • Spices, dried fruits, Uzbek fruits, ceramic, silk and wood products are some of the most popularly bought items at markets. The markets open at around 8 am in the morning at Tashkent.
  • Tashkent is a vibrant hub for modern art and these items can be bought at reasonable prices at specialized shops.
  • Carry plenty of cash as ATM machines are hard to find in lesser known areas.
  • Wear sturdy and comfortable shoes that provide support on sandy ground. Take your shoes off before you enter religious sites.
  • Try out the local delicacy ‘Plov’, a savory mix of rice and meat, served on all special occasions.
  • Take pictures at Khiva at night when the minarets and other monuments are illuminated. Sunrise and sunset present the best light play for perfect photographs.
