Uzbekistan offers distinct travel experiences based on the season. Spring (April to June) and autumn (September to October) are the most comfortable times to visit. Spring ushers in a colorful, short-lived desert bloom, while autumn boasts bountiful harvests and vibrant markets. Hikers should consider June to August for dry weather.

Winters, with temperatures between -5°C and +5°C, are snowy yet enjoy more sunny days. Warm clothing, like coats and gloves, is advisable. Spring sees milder temperatures, fluctuating between +15°C and +25°C, reaching +30°C to +35°C close to summer. Light, casual clothing for the day and a jacket or cardigan for the evening are suitable. Summers can be scorching, ranging from +36°C to +42°C, calling for lightweight options like T-shirts and shorts, with sun protection. Early autumn is similar to spring, while mid-October to November brings cooler temperatures, requiring light jackets and the occasional raincoat as the weather transitions from 35°C to 15°C.

In general, Uzbekistan, particularly major cities like Tashkent, offers a relaxed dress code with no strict limitations. Young people, in particular, enjoy considerable freedom in their clothing choices. It’s common to see young women wearing traditional Islamic coverings, but this is a personal choice rather than an obligation.

However, in some rural areas, it’s advisable to refrain from wearing shorts. The same guideline applies when visiting religious sites such as mosques and mausoleums. Additionally, for women, it’s respectful to cover the shoulders and chest and, preferably, wear a hat or headscarf when in these places. During the summer, it’s a good idea to adhere to these recommendations to shield yourself from the sun’s intensity, and you can also use sun protection lotions for added safety.

In Uzbekistan, giving tips is optional but appreciated if you receive excellent service.

Restaurants/Cafes/Bars: Many places add a 10-15% service charge to your bill. You don’t need to tip additionally, but it’s a nice gesture. Some tourist-focused spots may not include this charge, and in those cases, a 15-20% tip is expected.

Hotels: Service charges are typically included in your hotel fees. However, it’s customary to offer a small tip to bell-boys for their help.

Drivers and Guides: You can show your appreciation for their service with a tip. The amount is up to you and is usually given at the end of your tour or service.
