*Unless meals in Turkmenistan really are 1000ths of a penny then I believe www.lonelyplanet.com has a typo on their website re: meal prices and therefore, Turkmenistan is not in the list (the least expensive accommodations are in the range of $5-20).

**Bhutan charges all inclusive daily charges between $200 – $250/day dependent on the season.

In trying to research other outlets where meal prices in Turkmenistan would be available I did learn there is only one guidebook in the world on it thus far…so if you are down for the road less traveled… go…and let me know howuch your meals are.
