How unsafe is Tashkent ?

I am an American planning to visit Tashkent. I know we are less than loved in this region. Our state department even advises not to travel to Tashkent. I do not think it would be any different than going to New York City. Any tips on how to fit in ?

Interested in medium climbing difficulty. Maybe you know a climbing group there who organise trips, perhaps accomodation near the climb.

As I said I don't know Tashkent, your help will be appreciated very much. Plan to be there in the Spring next year.

I was in Tashhkent for a week and it's perfectly safe as long as you don't do anything daft. Caravan restaurant is good. tashkent palace hotel is a good choice. Great freshly squeezed grapefruit juice at the bar. If you get the chance visit Samarkand. long way on the ttrain but worthwhile

regarding climbing I would instead recommend Kazakhstan, specifically Chimbulak outside Almaty

We were in Tashkent in October 2005 and felt perfectly safe at all times. Found it to be a surprisingly pleasant, civilized city, lots of trees and fountains, and a thankfully decent number of restaurants and nicer hotels available (we had started our trip in Khiva, then to Bukhara and Samarkand before winding up in Tashkent). We only spent a day or two, wouldn't want anything longer, but it was a nice way to wind up the trip.

I have read a great deal about Tashkent and planning a trip there. I agree with one of the respondents. In any new city there are places to avoid and places to go. All one needs is right Company and local help.
