Days needed for Ashgabat

Many tours travelling a few places in Turkmenistan just spend one full days, in some cases half, in Ashgabat. What would be your recommended minimum number of days that one should be able to see all major sights in a leisure pace in Ashgabat?

It really depends on how much time you have. We had a driver/guide and we stayed 2½ days. Be sure to go up to the Wedding Palace to get a view of Ashgabat after dark.

Also depends on your interests, Ashgabat is not that big city but last year so many new buildings opened because of Asian Olympiad 2017. But still the city is not much crowded and almost no traffic except peak hours. And there are some places outside Ashgabat as well like Kowata and HorseFarm. Just ask them brief informations.
