Ashgabat

3.8
A Soviet-like grid of opulent marble edifices in the center of the desert, Ashgabat paints an unusual picture. Flattened in the 1940s by a violent earthquake, the capital of Turkmenistan has been redeveloped as a exercise in visionary architecture and display of wealth for this recently independent republic. Visit its gleaming white palace, Vegas-style fountains, and lavish museums celebrating the country's heritage, while reeling at the ambition and extraordinary nature of this ever-growing renovation project. Uncover the city by foot, or ride between its many marble bus stops--a cheap option for those wanting to see as much as possible in this city. Ashgabat is in Ahal Province. Take stress off the schedule by using our Turkmenistan trip itinerary tool .

Where to stay in Ashgabat

Budget is not a word you'll hear often in Ashgabat, so be prepared for lavish accommodation options. With one of the largest selections of high-class hotels in the country, the city caters to those who desire pampering. The range of luxury places to stay in Ashgabat will leave you spoiled for choice. Travelling here on a shoestring presents more of a challenge, even the city's mid-range options cost more than your average city. A more remote location will bring the price down a little; hotels situated further from downtown offer a more affordable stay.
