Ashgabat

— 5 nights
A Soviet-like grid of opulent marble edifices in the center of the desert, Ashgabat paints an unusual picture.
Ashgabat is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: enjoy breathtaking views from Monument Arch of Neutrality, delve into the distant past at Parthian Fortresses of Nisa - UNESCO World Heritage Site, identify plant and animal life at Kow Ata Underground Lake, and take an in-depth tour of Ashgabat National Museum of History.

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.
