Kazakhstan Holiday

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Kazakhstan?

A: Unless you really love driving, public transportation is probably the easiest and best way of moving around the buzzing streets of Almaty or Karagandy. With no parking fees (or trips to the gas pump) to worry about, you'll be able to relax and check out the city's popular sights with ease. If your main priority is to skip town and cruise around the region of Kazakhstan or elsewhere, picking up the key to a rental is a great option. Browse our guide to Cheap Car Hire in Kazakhstan, book a ride and get ready for the road trip of a lifetime.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Kazakhstan?

A: While Kazakhstan has a number of different airports, international flights usually fly into one of these terminals:

  • Almaty (ALA-Almaty Intl.): 956 international flights per month.
  • Astana (TSE-Astana Intl.): 737 international flights per month.
  • Aktau (SCO): 142 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Kazakhstan?

A: There's plenty of choice when it comes to accommodation in Kazakhstan. The most popular places are hotels. But if you're after something else, you can also choose from hostels, apartments, apart-hotels and much, much more.

Q: What are the best things to do in Kazakhstan?

A: To kick things off, you could visit Shymbulak Ski Resort and Big Almaty Lake. If you're staying in Almaty for a couple more days, Medeo is also well-loved among travellers.

Cathedral of Our Lady of Fatima, Park Pobedy and Regional Central Mosque are highly recommended if Karagandy is where you'll be spending your time.

And of course, Shymkent. Here, we'd recommend heading to Kazhymukan Stadium, Waterpark Dolphin and Shymkent Circus.
