  • Arch of Neutrality

    4 out of 5 stars

    Ashgabat Things to Do

    Of all the many monuments erected by President Niyazov, the Arch of Neutrality is perhaps the most outrageous. It looks rather like an alien rocket ship, topped with a gold statue of President Niyazov. There were rumours that President Niyazov's successor was having it dismantled, and I thought I might have missed my opportunity to see it, but it...

    Florida: Wild Nights near the Caspean Sea

    by gaolei Updated Jun 6, 2003

    The Russian travel sites talk about the Florida bar as the place to meet and eat in Turkmenbashi. When I went there, I was the only person in the place. The two guys there looked like they did not know what to do with me. Eventually I got a beer.

    I sat near a window and looked at the sea. A Russian girl came in carrying a plastic bag that said Shanghai in Chinese on the side. I thought , what a funny little world this is.

    She came over and asked if I wanted a girlfriend and if I had cigaretts. I answered no and she went away. I left a few minutes later. Another wild night in Turkmenbashi.

    Dress Code: Clothes.
