Below are some frequent questions asked by people coming to Central Asia with regard to transportation in the region.
- Question: Is water transport an option for me to travel in Central Asia in terms of transportation?
River transportation such as boats, ferries etc. are not available due to natural reasons. Local rivers are not suitable for navigation (shallow) and you cannot have a boat excursion along the river of Syrdarya or Amudarya. The Aral Sea has dried out and there is no navigation at all.
- Question: Can I travel in Central Asia using a bicycle or motorcycle?
Yes, it is possible, theoretically. There are, however, some reservations which need to be taken into account.
Such things as bicycles and motorcycles are almost non-existent among the local people. In the region, there is extremely scarce infrastructure for the bicyclists. There are no specially allocated paths where you can safely ride a bicycle. As to motorcycles, local drivers quite rarely encounter them and they are not used to interacting with such vehicles, keeping to their lanes, using blinkers etc. thereby posing a serios danger of car accident.
- Question: Can I rent a car to travel in Central Asia?
Yes, it is possible in some countries, namely, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. In other countries, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan, this service in completely unavailable.
- Question: Can I come to Central Asia in my own car?
Bringing your own vehicle in the region is possible, though it may be a good idea if you are a true enthusiast of independent driving, fully prepared to stand all the ordeals of taking the vehicle through the numerous border points. It should be taken into account that Central Asia is quite far from the world's busy automobile routes.
