Turkmenistan

Turkmenistan Tour Packages from Dubai

Somewhat isolated and idiosyncratic, Turkmenistan intrigues!

From the grand and lavish palaces, gold statues and marble monuments in the over-manicured capital of Ashgabet to the mysticism that hangs over pilgrimage sites and ancient ruins - this is most certainly a uniquely Turkmen experience!

Turkmenistan has been at the crossroads of civilizations for centuries. It is a country in Central Asia bordered by the Caspian Sea and largely covered by the Karakum Desert. It’s known for archaeological ruins including those at Nisa and Mery, major stops along the ancient trade route the Silk Road.

For the politically-curious, Turkmenistan, best known for the eccentricities of its late dictator Saparmurat Niyazov whose personality cult is omnipresent (the legend prevails although the process of dismantling is on-going with the new leadership), presents an opportunity to take a peek into one of world’s few totalitarian rules. History buffs will enjoy the ancient cities like Merv, and Konye-Urgench while nature-lovers will appreciate the haunting beauty of the Karakum Desert (Black Sand) and the occasional quirks of coloured canyons, dinosaur footprints and burning gas craters. Call today to explore a Turkmenistan holiday tour package.
