Im from malaysia and intended to go to uzbek for holiday next year.....and is looking for cheap local tour to visit cities such as tashkent,samarkand,bukhara and khiva.......those local tours in the net offer sometimes too expensive tour.I understand most of the tours are paid in USD but there must be some local tours that are more cheaper although is also paid in usd.I would appreciate for some feedbacks and ideas.
Thank you so much
I don't know if things have changed, but the official exchange rate means nothing. When I was there, the official rate was 5000 to 1 USD. I exchanged money with taxi drivers, who had a trunk full of money and ar markets. They gave me 23,000 to 25,000 to 1 usd. That made my 50,000 beer in the hotel only 2 dollars.
