I was there in December of 1997 and loved it! Didn't like Tashkent (too modern and Soviet), but Samarakand, Khiva, and Bukhara were very exotic and interesting. Bukhara was my favorite! The people, the architecture, everything was very memorable there.

The US State Dept. just issued a warning yesterday warning Americans to be very careful in Uzbekistan, and to avoid large crowds, celebrations, etc.. Said they had info. on American (and probably Western) interests being terrorist targets.

When I was there, I felt very safe (that was also pre-9/11 & pre-state dept. warning). If it is safe to go, I'd definitely recommend it!
