Is Turkmenbashi a place? I thought it was Niyazov's title, Head of the Turkmen. -(WT-en) phma 18:09, 11 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Map needs Afghanistan[edit]

This map needs Afghanistan on it - it's definitely part of Central Asia... (WT-en) Cacahuate 10:30, 18 December 2006 (EST)

shit happens - make over the map...

quote: In modern contexts, all definitions of Central Asia include these five republics of the former Soviet Union: Kazakhstan (pop. 16.6 million), Kyrgyzstan (5.5 million), Tajikistan (7.6 million), Turkmenistan (5.1 million), and Uzbekistan (29.5 million). and another more reliable source.


Mongolia is Central Asia as well. Arguably so is East Turkestan and possibly even TIBET, but they are not independent states so we can safely leave them as part of China and thus "East Asia".

But no way is Mongolia getting left in East Asia. That is some ludicrous shit. I am changing this page to include it.

Let's keep this discussion in one place → Talk:East Asia. (WT-en) Jpatokal 12:31, 17 March 2008 (EDT)


Turkmenistan especially Ashgabat needs to be expanded urgently it is very substandard.

Get to work! (WT-en) Jpatokal 02:14, 30 October 2009 (EDT)

Central Asia - 5 stans[edit]

Is there anything useful in that article that should be moved here, or to any of the country-level articles, or should it simply be deleted? Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:20, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Move Merv?[edit]

Merv is currently listed under "Other destinations" as:

  • Merv — the most famous of Turkmenistan's many ruined medieval Silk Road cities.

I'd like to move it to the Cities section. To do that, we'd need to remove one of the current list of cities; I suggest Astana. We currently have:

  • Almaty — Kazakhstan's former capital is an infinitely more preferable destination than ad hoc Astana.
  • Astana — Kazakhstan's dreary, cold northern capital.

I see no problem dropping Astana from the list, especially if we make the mention in the Almaty line a link. Other opinions? Pashley (talk) 15:35, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
