Five reasons to come to Central Asia Hello everyone! This our first blog in 2020, thank you for being with us and following all our news and blogs in 2019 and in recent years. We definitely had a very successful touristic season, the number of travelers coming to this region is growing rapidly, especially Uzbekistan tours are becoming more and more popular and the main reason for that is the visa regime which is abolished for many -many countries and still the list is expanding. This makes us to think of giving you five main reasons why Central Asia tours should be on your wish list in this travel season. “The ’stans are the next frontier,” I heard from one of our repeated costumer . And she might be right. One of our travel company partner in Australia that works with a small group tours announced that has seen four times more increase in bookings for Uzbekistan and we can say for sure it is 91 % increase globally. In other words: The tourists are coming. Now is the time to go. Here are five reasons why: 1. As mentioned above, now it is a lot easier to visit Uzbekistan then ever before. The visa regime has been thoroughly overhauled. While during the past president times the country was under a strong control including tourisms sphere. And this new president has much different ways of dealing when it comes to opening Uzbekistan to the whole world. The country has finally realized that it is a time to welcome investors and foreign travelers by providing them appropriate conditions and support which can be a real turn on for the national economy. And adopting a free visa regime to the western countries was a huge step forward in this direction. Now the citizens of almost all European countries together with Australia, New Zealand, Turkey, China, Canada ect can enter the country without visa. For many other countries the visa obtaining process has been simplified by adopting the electronic visa procedure. 2. Currency convertibility. For so many years everyone who was coming on their Uzbekistan tours were annoyed by the difficulty in banking system which mainly effected the money exchange issues. It is no secret that the country was experiencing the black market rate and official government rate that had a huge difference in between. Now as soon as you arrive you have opportunities to get cash for your money right from the airport, hotesl, banks, banks machines and in many shops and markets. It is a big change in our lives that keeps the country moving towards the market economy. 3. If you ask me what would be the top 5 list of the worst airports in the world, Tashkent international airport would be defiantly on that list. The bureaucratic procedures and low efficient system has created huge lines in passport controls that made this airport giving a very bad first impression. It could take up to 2 hours to finally check out the passport control and reach the baggage claim zone which would could made you spend another hours and hours for your bags to be delivered. Really proud to say now the whole process in the new Airport named after Islam Karimov is taking maximum one hour and some times even faster. 4. More and more options for transpiration and logistics. It is a huge country and sometime you have to drive for many hours to reach the next city, which is not preferable for those who don’t like spending so much time sitting in the vehicle. And the high speed Spanish train Afrosiab is being a perfect alternative for that now. While it started only with taking you from Tashkent to Samarkand and back, now days you can reach on this train Bukhara which is another gem , Karshi and with normal trains you can travel all the way up from east starting in Ferghana Valley all the way up to the west to Nukus. 5. This is one is a simple reason: Uzbekistan is becoming popular to fast in many terms, so if you are one of those who wants to be in extra ordinary tours then Uzbekistan tours is a perfect choice before it is getting to crowded here. And if you coming to Uzbekistan would be much valuable if you can spend some time extending your journey to some other stans for Central Asia tours by Rakhmatjon Ibragimov Roxana Tour Co
