Travelling to Turkmenistan: final tips and advice
Finding it hard to fall head over heels for a long distance country with hordes of tourists? A destination as strange as it is fascinating, Turkmenistan is a real paradise for those hungry for adventure. Imagine finding yourself in the depths of Karakoum Desert, the huge crater in Darvaza, a hole undergoing constant eruptions.

You'll discover the crucial contrast between tradition and modernity, as well as the Turkmen warmth and generosity. Fancy combining your trip to Turkmenistan with a visit to Uzbekistan?
