    • Accommodations

      by pchun88 Online Now Mar 9, 2014 at 8:39 PM

      Hi...I'll be in Almaty in late July. I'm looking for affordable accommodations. Hotels seemed to be way above my budget and there don't seem to be too many mid range hotels. Is there a website or other information I can use? My budget is somewhere in the $40-60 range.

      Thanks,

      Paul

    • Day tours from Almaty

      by pchun88 Online Now Feb 18, 2014 at 10:45 PM

      I will be in Almaty in late July for 3-4 days. I am traveling solo and wanted to take a day trip out to see some nature. What sites would you recommend? And are there any group tours I could join? I've checked online and most tours are private and quite expensive. Thanks. Paul

    • Almaty 1, NOT 2, Train Station

      by tezzy Online Now Aug 27, 2013 at 11:01 PM

      Hi fellow travelers!

      1. Safe at night? This website, dostoprim.almaty.kz/page.php..., claims the station is under surveillance around the clock, even late at night, and that the police are at any give time at present. Has anyone been there in the wee hours?
      2. Any exchange beaureux (money changer) on site?

      Thanks for your time.

    • Has anyone slept overnight at the Almaty airport?

      by tezzy Online Now Aug 4, 2013 at 8:21 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I am flying into the Almaty airport fairly late and onto another -stan country.

      I wonder how comfortable overnight sleeping at the airport can be. Has anyone done it before?

      I have looked at www.sleepinginairports.net before posting my question here and there are only 2 postings on the Web site and pretty out-dated - one in 2005 and the other in 2003...

      I love to hear tips for a best sleeping spot, fending off security guards if any, etc.,

      Thanks for your time.

      Cheers,

      Hi we are flying in to Almaty arriving at 5:10am on the KLM flight. Local (UK) time that is midnight so we will be very tired. Are there hotels we can check in to at that time to get some sleep?

      Also if we decided to catch a train somewhere instead, how quickly could we get from Almaty airport to Alma-Ata-2 train station? Does immigration take a long time?

Lonely Planet currently says to expect 8 hours, with difficult officials and no plumbing facilities. To save all that, is it easier to fly from Urumqi to Almaty?
