"Shared taxis" Samarkand Transportation Tip by RB_Oakes

Samarkand Transportation: 12 reviews and 20 photos

The shared taxi stand in Samarqand (for leaving) is not at the bus station, unlike in most other cities I've visited. Four of us went to Bukahra for 30,000 sum - not exactly the product of hard bargaining. Actually, the reason for the high price was because I insisted on a safe vehicle. The other drivers get a little choked up, but I need good brakes, good tires and a seatbelt. Check your car and driver thoroughly if safety is a concern because many of them don't seem to care. The drivers with the best cars also seem to be the safest drivers, too.
