 - Representatives of various nations with different religions live in Indonesia.  In connection with the celebration of the Chinese New Year, state institutions in our country announced a weekend.  I learned about the visa-free system operating in Uzbekistan, bought a ticket and became the first "visa-free" passenger from my country who flew to Uzbekistan.  The introduced regime is an excellent opportunity for Indonesian tourists to visit your country, learn about your cultural and historical heritage.  During my trip I plan to visit Samarkand and Bukhara, especially I want to visit the Imam al-Bukhari complex.  I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to the representatives of Uzbekistan Airways and the State Committee for Tourism Development of Uzbekistan for their warm welcome.  I come to your republic for the third time, and I think that this is not my last visit.  I am very impressed, these memorable gifts will always remind  me of this unforgettable trip to Uzbekistan.

- Every time, when I come to Uzbekistan, I see what kind of changes are taking place here.  For seven years I have been flying to Uzbekistan regularly.  There are noticeable positive changes in the airport, - says Zhiviji, a lecturer at the University of Singapore.  - I especially want to note the service on board the aircraft and the professionalism of the crew members, as well as the convenience in the airport.  "Red" and "green" corridors and simplified passport control allow cross-border control without any difficulties.  Every time I visit your country, I admire the beauty of Samarkand, Bukhara and Tashkent and every time I open them again.  I like Uzbek national cuisine, I like plov, fruits and dried fruits.  I can not describe the smell and taste of hot cakes.  Your hospitable people and inquisitive youth always impress me.
