Termiz, Border City

Termiz is a small city buit near the Afghanistan border. It is 10 minutes away from the border. It is located south of the country, about 8 hours away by taxi, or one hour by jet plane from Tashkent. The air service is very good with three flights a day each way.
The border crossing to Afghanistanis at the Frenship Bridge in the nearby town of Mangusar. The crossing is limited to diplomats and business people and requires prior registration. Most international people met in termiz are expats transiting to and from Afghanistan. Termiz is also used as a week-end get away for expats in Northern Afghanistan.
It has a few hotels and restaurants as well Western Union and banks. There is a lake, Uchkizel, which is 12 km to the north, which has a beach and some small boats for rental.
