Turkmenistan

Trip Planner Asia  /  Turkmenistan
Sightseeing Historic Sites Museums
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. Use our Turkmenistan trip planner to arrange your visit to Turkmenistan and other destinations in Turkmenistan.
