Tips before traveling to Tajikistan
When traveling for the first time to Tajikistan, here are the top tips and information needed to help you have the perfect leisure and hassle-free vacation:
Cash is king in Tajikistan
As cash is not always available at ATMs, and there are absolutely no ATMs in many places in Tajikistan. So make sure you have cash with you, and don’t rely on credit cards.
Learn a little national language
This is because the people of Tajikistan are very friendly, but they are not very good at speaking English. So learn a little of the national language to be able to communicate with them.
Respect the traditions and customs
This is because Tajikistan is an Islamic country, and we strongly recommend the necessity of wearing modest clothes when traveling in Tajikistan.
Forget the luxury of toilets
Floor toilets are most common in Tajikistan, they are holes dug in the ground, so always carry hand sanitizer and soap with you.
Be careful when traveling on Pamir Expressway
It is a road very high from sea level. Most of the dreadful Lowlanders may not be used to it, so be careful not to get altitude sickness, so always carry your headache and dizziness medicine with you.
