Top 10 Turkmenistan
Adam Greenberg and I recently visited five Central Asian countries, including Turkmenistan. We loved it. Central Asia is an under-appreciated region, from the silk road area markets of Uzbekistan to the rolling steppes of Kyrgyzstan. By far the most unusual country we visited was Turkmenistan. A relatively closed country, the Turkmen only receive a few thousand tourists a year. With that in mind, we had the place to ourselves. We rode horses, explored the desert, ferried around their capital city if Ashgabat with a government handler.
It was awesome.
