Uzbekistan What to Pack

  • Some suggestions

    Although nominally a Muslim country, decades of living under Russian rule has resulted in Uzbekistan being a very secular society and you'll find you can wear pretty well anything you like here but, for all that, it is still a conservative society so covered shoulders and nothing shorter than knee-length is probably best. Women don't need to...

  • Packing for the heat

    If like us you’re visiting Uzbekistan in summer (we were there in July 2007), go prepared for HOT weather! Think cool cottons and linens, loose-fitting and light-coloured, and make sure you take a sun hat. Although this is officially a Muslim country you don’t need to worry as much as you might elsewhere about covering yourself up. I took long...

  • Toilet Paper

    Sun cream and a hat (or umbrella to keep the sun off). Always make sure that you have some toilet paper about your person, just in case. You won't always need it, but it helps to be prepared.Immodium or similar diarrhoea tablets and rehydration salts are also useful, though you can obtain these in a pharmacy in an emergency. Ideally, bring a...

  • Packing list for Uzbekistan :-)

    Travel light and as small as possible. No matter if you travel by bus, taxi or train, you will have to carry and store the luggage. If you travel by shared taxis, Uzbeks usually define a car full with minimum 4 people, so 4 people’s luggage has to go into the trunk ! If you travel with backpack, bring protection. Some cars will be repaired all the...

    If you are used to drink coffee: be prepared that you most probably will not find freshly ground coffee in most of Uzbekistan's restaurants (the big hotels might have, a handful of restaurants and cafés as well). They serve Nescafe, which tastes... well, the way, Nescafe tastes.If you are used to have milk with your coffee: even if you see cows...

    Depends on the type of activity. Suitcase is suitable if you plan to stay in hotels, otherwise take a rucksack. Once again, think of what you will be doing. In any case, take light clothes. You do not have to worry much about your clothes being suitable for the streets, as the country is not strict in this respect. However if you plan to visit...

  • Packing List

    A strong bag with wheels at one end. A suitcase is not practical because it can't be squeesed in when the lugage compartmant in a bus or other means of transportation is small. A backpack is easy to cary but as we all know: what you need is always at the bottom... Even in hot wheather I walk on my rather heavy hiking-boots. Trousers with legs that...

    Suitcase or backpack. Because mostly you sleep in a hotel. And the transport between different cities is by bus or train. Light coton cloths, light walking shoes. Bring something against diarrhoea, because the meals are extremely fat, they cook mostly with sheep's fat.Bring also some ORS, agains dehydration. nothing special, only bring enough...
