    • Spending a month this summer in Almaty, would appreciate some information:

      Almaty Apr 8, 2015 at 11:12 AM

      Greetings;

      I will be in Almaty for a month (mid-July to mid-August), teaching at KIMEP. I have several questions:

      1) Is there a possibility of finding (buying) an inexpensive basic bicycle for transportation?

      2) Is there an English-language book exchange in the area (so I don't have to too many paperbacks)?

      3) I don't know if the University has a swimming pool I can use, but if not, can anyone tell me the cost for a one-month membership / pass to use the Central Swimming Pool, or as alternative the CK Rakhat Fitness?

      4) I see several tennis courts; is tennis popular? Might I be able to find some doubles play?

      5) Looking at Lonely Planet (which seems to have the most complete description), it appears that the public transit system is meager. Will it be of much use to me from the area where KIMEP is located?

      6) Other than "pubs" or drinking, what are the evening / weekend social activities?

      Thanks in advance!

    • Kokshetau in June

      Kokshetau Oblysy May 16, 2010 at 5:43 PM

      I am wondering what the weather will be like in June and July. Also, I am a vegetarian, yet I do eat fish. Will I be able to find enough vegetarian food like grains, beans or cans of fish? Fresh vegetables and fruit? Also, are there a lot of mosquitos in Kokshetau? (I had heard that in some parts of Kazakhstan people found this to be the case, with windows having no screens.)
      Thank you,
      Rachel
