Traditional yurts in Kyrgyzstan make for a unique travel experience

by Jeff Hoyt


Want to get away? I mean, really, really away? How about Easter Island, considered the most remote spot on the planet? For peace and quiet, you can head out for the Outback of Australia, up to the highest mountains in Norway or down to the deepest recesses of the South Pacific. You can even visit an uncrowded part of the USA in Sarah Palin’s Alaska. “I just came back from my vacation in a yurt in Kyrgyzstan!” is sure to stop conversations at your next holiday party.


Our list of the Top 10 Remote Hotels Worldwide features far-flung destinations that promise a vacation filled with solitude. It’s part of the latest edition of our TASTES newsletter, which was published today.
