Voice of Travelers to Tajikistan

Work visit to Tajikistan

I am Simon from Uzbekistan and I work with GlobeExpress as a Finance Manager. GlobeExpress has a country branch in Dushanbe, Tajikistan to which I have been for work. I must admit that my last trip to Tajikistan was incredible. The company organized everything from the air ticket to the accommodation and on the last trip, I wanted to experience traveling with a different airline. I asked the HR manager if I could book the accommodation and air ticket to Tajikistan myself. I searched online for the cheapest ticket and found one, 4 days prior to my travel. It is advisable to search online for the cheapest ticket six weeks prior to your departure. Air Manas had the cheapest ticket to Tajikistan compared to other airlines. With a business class ticket, they offered plenty of food, free alcohol, and in-flight entertainment. Their flight attendants were exceptionally friendly and my travel experience was marvelous overall.

Lecture visit to Tajikistan

I am Pankaj, Professor of Electrical Engineering at Michigan University. I visited Tajikistan last week to give a lecture on real-time and parallel computing at the Technological University Tajikistan. This was my first time to travel to Central Asia and I was excited by the prospect of a new travel experience to Tajikistan. A referral from a friend got me a cheap ticket to Tajikistan via Turkish Airlines, which was discounted. I didn't need a visa, only a valid passport, air ticket and accommodation ticket were required by the immigration. A few days later, I was on the Turkish Airline flight to Tajikistan. The travel experience was brilliant and I am visiting Tajikistan again and I will absolutely purchase a Turkish ticket.
