Reasons To Visit Turkmenistan

Turkmenistan is a country rich in history with a nomadic past, while much development has gone into the country in recent decades to give it a modern flavor in places like the capital Ashgabat. One of the most popular and fascinating attractions in the country is the Merv ruins along the Silk Road which has now become a UNESCO world heritage site. If you fancy being out in nature during your trip then Kugitang Nature Reserve is the perfect place to get away from it all and experience the stunning natural beauty of Turkmenistan up close. You will not want to miss out on a day exploring the capital Ashgabat which is famous for its white marble architecture and also offers plenty of excellent museums and art galleries. For an experience of how the locals live, visit one of the bazaars like Gulistan Market and bring home something memorable.
