"Taxi is cheap" Samarkand Transportation Tip by hat53

Samarkand Transportation: 12 reviews and 20 photos

Taxi is a cheap way to get around. Agree about the price before you get in. They usually try to overcharge you but if you persist the price drops or another taxi stop behind yours and you can go to the next.
There are also little transporters a kind of shared cabs. These aren't that comfortable because you have to share with seven others and they don't bring you to the exact location.
We always payed max 800 sum for a taxi (not per person!). This could have changed because 1st of august petrol Price's raised sharp. from 500 sum per 10 liters to 750 sum.
