There are two types of tourists who visit Uzbekistan. First one are the ones who actually want to visit Uzbekistan. Second are the ones who come for the boom boom experience of Tashkent, a budding mini-Thailand. We belonged to the 1st group and were not even aware of this 2nd group. And to make matters worse, we were the minority. So, getting visa and even airline tickets to Uzbekistan was quite difficult for us. There are group visas issued for the 2nd group and lot of travel agents in India will help you with that. But we were on our own and our experience with Uzbekistan visa was horrible.
