Flea Market Shopping
Wander busy market streets and find anything your heart desires at Tolkuchka-Basar. The out-of-town chaotic shopping area offers everything from live sheep to embroidered clothing. Walk from one vendor to another to buy memorabilia, toys, and talismans made by the locals, but pay close attention to those selling carpets. Keep in mind that carpets older than 50 years cannot be exported, while others need an export certificate.

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.
