Figure out the best place to stay on Khao San Road in Bangkok and where to escape when you've had enough of the mayhem. From Singapore Slings to the changes in Bejing after the 2008 Olympics, gab about it all here.

anyone here from Canada go to Turkmenistan? I would like ton spend a week there (7 days) and was wondering if anyone could recommend a reliable organization to help me get the Visa and travel permits? As well I am a student so I am wondering how much I should budget for the trip? It seems home stays are not allowed in the country but could I find cheap B&B's to sleep in?

Thanks

I am Canadian and went to Turkmenistan a few years ago. Turkmenistan is SUPER expensive as all tourists MUST go on an escorted tour. There is a way around this. If you are transiting the country, you can get a 5-day transit visa and you don't need a tour. Check out my blog entry if you're bored. http://joestrippin.blogspot.com/search/ ... rkmenistan

If we ever meet in person Mr.Bunny I will have to buy you a drink for all the help you have given me. I just read your blog and it confirmed the issues with megalomania I had, so maybe ill skip this "Stan" for now. I kinda wanted to see Merv and the other Unesco sights but I don't really want the government getting my money. Thanks again for the info and maybe when I have an itinerary I can send it to you for feedback?

Thanks a TON!
