There’s a new airport in Turkmenistan’s capital, Ashgabat and it looks fierce! The falcon-like building price $2.three billion and can process over 1600 traveler an hour. Regrettably, only 105,000 tourists visited the country in 2015 or 12 an hour which made a lot of people query the purpose of the project.

Turkmenistan gained its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. It produces about 70 billion cubic metres of natural gas every year that is the primary source of income for the country with the population of five million. Like many post-soviet countries, it suffers high stages of corruption. It additionally has dictatorship rule, therefore the media is controlled by the government.
