What are the pros and cons of living in Turkmenistan?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Turkmenistan responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Turkmenistan appreciate the country's rich culture and history, as well as its stunning natural beauty. They also enjoy the friendly and welcoming people, who are always willing to help out newcomers. On the other hand, expats and digital nomads may find the lack of modern infrastructure and the limited access to the internet and other services to be a challenge. Additionally, the country's strict visa regulations and the difficulty of obtaining a work permit can be a deterrent for some," said one expat in living in Turkmenistan.
