Our Experiences:  Kazakhstan is a rich oil producing state. it was a surprise for us visiting Almaty. The city is full of greens, huge parks, nice restaurants and surrounded by snow peak mountains. Very inviting. The city is pretty much European like, despite it´s location bordering China.  Some kilometers northeast of Almaty is the mst continental point on earth (The farthest from the ocean). We drove up the hills to visit some beatiful parks and turquoise water lakes. Very similar to some Canadian lakes.

Hotels we love and recommend:  Ritz Carlton (Almaty)
