Ashgabat — 5 nights

A Soviet-like grid of opulent marble edifices in the center of the desert, Ashgabat paints an unusual picture.

Your trip includes some of its best attractions: pause for some photo ops at Independence Monument, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kow Ata Underground Lake, examine the collection at Turkmen Museum of Fine Arts, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ertugrul Gazi Mosque.

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.
