This thread is marked as being about Uzbekistan

I'm trying to save a few bucks because I'm traveling during the peak season of christmas/new years and the hotels are alot more expensive than I figured they would be. I'm thinking about taking the train which is around 15 hrs i believe. Is it a wise idea to take the train over the bus? Some people have told me I'm crazy for taking the train, but i figured if I get the 2nd class AC sleep car I should be fine if I just keep my valuables on me at all times. has anyone had experience with these overnight trains

2nd class a/c (or even fan) is fine - thousands of travellers use it every year. Train is more comfortable than buses but takes slightly longer.

Hope that helps

As travelfish points out the train trip is safe and comfortable. Make sure you buy your ticket at least a day before travel.
The train arrives early morning and allows you to connect with buses all over the province.
