Almaty Travel Guide: 357 reviews and 828 photos

Almaty is a great place to sit back and relax after some hard Central Asian travel. Finding budget accomodation can be a bit of a chore and you may end up being forced to choose between the ultra-low end and something beyond your price range.
That aside, there are good restaurants waiting and you can pass a few days with some good sights and interesting streets. The city itself has a few older buildings as well as massive Soviet style structures.
Also, for those spending a considerable amount of time in Central Asia, Almaty is enjoy a few of the comforts not found elsewhere in the region.

Almaty is a great city to walk in, with the core relatively compact and interesting buildings not too far away from one another.
If you're coming from Tashkent, surely you'll appreciate the way Almaty just seems more alive.
