Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan, which is the best "Istan" country to visit?

Lately I've been very interested in the "Istan" countries (except Pakistan and Afghanistan). Which is the best "Istan" country to visit?

Top Answer:

I'd recommend Kyrgyzstan then Tajikstan, they have the best nature imo, if culture is your thing then uzbekistan, if you want to see absurdly clean cities with everything built in marble and lots of golden status for the dictator then turkmenistan, if you want the best place for nightlife then almaty (kazakhstan), i'd recommend considering going to the wakhan valley from the afghan side, it's a very remote part of afghanistan and very close to the tajik side, reportedly more hardcore and rewarding to do it from the afghan side, and taliban are like 100km away from that area so it's safe

Other Answers:

Kazakhstan is the only I've been in, and it's nice. Reminded me of Romania. People are still curious to see and talk to westerners, but there's also the big American Food chains because of all the fat expats there. You'r pretty much safe anywhere, especially in the big cities, but there's endless beautiful nature to explore where there's less laws.

They're not called Istan but Stan.

Londistan or Berlinistan

Eastern Europe
