Trav­el­ing around the Coun­try Fas­ci­nat­ing and at Rea­son­able Costs

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - TRAVEL -

On the hol­i­day Navruz, Uzbek­istan’s res­i­dents are ex­pected to spend the sec­ond five-day va­ca­tion this year, to last from March 18 through to 22. Ac­cord­ing to the idea, this fes­tive pe­riod for com­pa­tri­ots will turn cap­ti­vat­ing with trav­els around the coun­try. Un­prece­dented dis­counts have been in­tro­duced to this end on rail and air tick­ets, ho­tels.

One of the first to an­nounce dis­counts was Uzbek­istan Rail­ways. Tick­ets for all do­mes­tic trav­els from the com­pany for these days are sold for half the price.

“We de­cided to go with friends to Sa­markand. So much is said about this city, and many of us have never been there,” says stu­dent Hik­mat Rakhi­mov. “It is dou­bly pleas­ant that tick­ets for Afrosiyob train we’ve got on a 50% dis­count.”

Af­ter­wards, Uzbek­istan Air­ways came out with its dis­counts. How­ever, here dis­counts de­pend­ing on the flight are dif­fer­ent: from 30% to 50%. The com­pany’s pro­pos­als were so much in de­mand that the num­ber of flights to Ur­gench and Bukhara had to be in­creased.

“Re­duced ticket prices is very good news. The whole fam­ily will fly to Ur­gench,” says Maf­tuna Ibrag­i­mova. “Thanks to the fact that we will make a trip by plane, time will be enough not only to stay with rel­a­tives, but also to visit Khiva they have not been there for a long time.”

Ac­tive trips are pro­moted and dis­counts in ho­tels. Most of them, within the frame­work of the pro­grams of the State Com­mit­tee for the De­vel­op­ment of Tourism, es­tab­lished dis­counts of up to 50%.
