Turkmenistan

3.5
With a population of just 5 million and the majority of its area part of one of the driest deserts on the planet, Turkmenistan remains one of the world's least explored destinations. Known largely for the eccentric dictatorship of Saparmyrat Niyazov, who died in 2006, this desert land boasts great natural beauty and centuries-old traditions. A tour of Turkmenistan reveals a series of thriving cities, once important stops on the ancient Silk Road. Probably the most convenient of the country's urban centers, Ashgabat serves as the national capital and most developed city, known for its white-marble buildings housing theaters, museums, and shopping malls. Turkmenistan is in Asia. Make the most of your holiday in Turkmenistan by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Turkmenistan trip planner.
