Turkmenistan to build tourist reort on Caspian

I was encouraged to hear on the BBC news that Turkmenistan is planning to build a tourist resort on the Caspian Sea. Easier visas, I thought!

Still, with "60 hotels, restaurants, a 3,000-seat stadium, sports facilities and shopping centers" it sounds like quite a departure for Turkmenistan. Bad news, it's in Turkmenbashi, next to an oil refinery and where a urea plant is planned....
