Question: Shared Taxi from Nukus on 1st September

Hi there,

We hope that somebody with local knowledge is able to help answer our questions regarding Independence Day in Uzbekistan.

We are planning a holiday end of August - beginning of September and will have to travel between Nukus and Khiva on 1st September. 1st September is also Eid al-Adha, so this might influence the transport situation also? Do you think that we will be able to get a shared taxi between the two towns, or is everybody taking the day off to celebrate? What would our alternative be? Any information and suggestions are welcome.

Thank you very much in advance!

As a local person, i can say that there should not be a problem with transport on Indepdendence day. But if 1 of September is Eid Al-Adha, you might have transport problems. This day is much bigger celebrated and everyone is on holiday on this day. Please note that the date of Eid Al-Adha is not confirmed yet in Uzbekistan. It will be confirmed in the second half of August. 

In case, i recommend you to find a driver who can help you on this day. Local tour operators can arrange it for you. (I can also help with it, as I am also a tour operator in Uzbekistan). This way, you will not be in trouble and all set with your schedules. 

I wish you have a nice trip in Uzbekistan.
