About Turkmenistan

Vast, isolated, and admittedly more than a bit mysterious, Turkmenistan is a fascinating country. Tucked into the western edge of Central Asia, Turkmenistan is visited by few tourists (predominantly due to the fact that it accepts few tourists) and is not often in the limelight of western media. Those who do get the privilege of a visit will find a culture that is varied if a bit rough around the edges, and also filled with unexpected records and details. Just one example: its capital city of Ashgabat has more marble buildings than anywhere else in the world.
