Did you only connect grand Turkmen hotel wifi ? No other places? Thank you Hi togreiser, 1. No, we didn't try these. You might as well try. :) ...

Re: Buying the "Ruhnama" and bring it out of the country?

A friend travelling with us got the ruhnama (first book, english language) at a book store around the russian bazaar in Ashgabat for 30$. He even declared it at the exit border (konye-urgench), the customs officer was not interested in it.

Re: Any way to legally bring a drone to Turkmenistan?

We met one guy who had a drone with him and used it at darvaza crater. He didn't know it was illegal and he wasn't checked at the border (our luggage neither). Wouldn't recommend it though. :D

Re: SIM Card and internet in Turkmenistan

We were in Ashgabat from 29th July until 1st of August. Didn't try to buy a SIM card, but checked out the WiFi. Cafés and restaurants generally didn't want to give us access to their WiFi. Some of the big hotels have free WiFi (no password). We stood outside of the grand Turkmen hotel to use their i...
