Termiz is right along the border with Afghanistan. You can see Afghanistan across the river from various points on the roads around the town.
Old Termiz dates back to the 6th century BC, was conquered by Alexander the Great and was an early center of Buddhism. In later times it was a center of Islam and was later destroyed by Genghis Khan.
Modern Termiz was built a few kilometres away and is currently a major supply hub for the NATO war operations in Afghanistan. It is also a busy transport hub for goods entering and leaving Afghanistan due to the Friendship Bridge, built by the Soviet Union.
There is a night train from Tashkent every second day, leaving Tashkent Pass Csentr. at 9 PM and arriving next day at 11:40 AM.
From Shakhrisabz by taxi takes 4+ hours and 45,000 per person.
Coming from Afghanistan, it is possible to take a shared taxi or drive to Hairatan on the other side of the river and then walk across the border.
Public transport isn't a good way to travel between all the sights (and there is no public transport to Kampyr-Tepe). It's possible to hire a driver for roughly $20 (currently 160,000 som as of July 2018) to visit these places: Fortress Kirk Kiz, Kokildor-Ota Khanaka, Sultan Saodat Ensemble, Kampyr-Tepe, Fayaz-Tepa, Stupa Zurmala, and Al Hakim At-Termizi Mausoleum. Visit the al-Termizi Mausoleum last so the driver can leave (this will help on haggling the price at the beginning, as it's easy to get on a van back to Termez from here) so you can walk around and explore old Termez city ruins. All together it will take around 4 hours to visit all these places. Haggle hard with drivers who will start their price at a ridiculous 500,000 som or more, but pay no more than 200,000 som. It might help to give the driver a large water bottle so they don't rush you and complain about the heat (which does get very hot in summer). July 2018.
Be very careful at restaurants in Termez. At multiple restaurants, they will attempt to artificially inflate the bill - at Surxon restaurant, for example, apparently using a napkin cost 10,000 som. It is advised to calculate the cost of a meal with the waitress and confirm the total before the waitress puts in the order - keep in mind a 10% service charge is normal, however. At some restaurants, if you try paying with a 50,000 som note they might just take that and not give change back, so it's best to have smaller notes on hand. Stand your ground and don't let yourself be cheated.
As of 2018, there are no direct buses or taxis to Bukhara. It is possible to share a taxi to Qarshi (four hours) and from there find another shared taxi to Bukhara (two hours) - be warned that it's not guaranteed to find other people that want to share a taxi to Bukhara, however.
