Transportation

Road
The bad roads maintenance makes the traffic difficult and dangerous, including in the cities. Drivers and pedestrians have to be very careful because of the behaviour, sometimes unpredictable, of local drivers. There are few gas stations and the quality of the gas is unequal. Plan a reserve for long distances.



Rail
The Tachkent-Boukhara-Urgentch-Noukous line goes through the Turkmen territory on the major part of the distance. It is said that Turkmen border guards sometimes swindle occidental tourists because they do not have any visa for Turkmenistan.

The fleet used for international flights (Airbus, Boeing) meets Occidental standard. On the other hand, it is not sure that the maintenance procedures of the domestic lines aircrafts are scrupulously respected.
