7 Nights 8 Days Kazakhstan Tour Package
As the ninth largest country in the world, Kazakhstan is full of plenty to explore. Much of the country is covered in vast steppes, broken by mountains, forests, lakes, and cities. Any trip to Kazakhstan is an opportunity to explore and endure the vibrance of the country.
The two cities have played a major role in the country’s tourism for being the capital city of the country. Astana (Nur-Sultan), the capital city, the weirdest place with extensive history which was built more or less from the ground. It has a lot of modern architecture with striking design and scale which is in contrast to the dry steppes. Almaty, the largest city, the major commercial and central hub of the country located on the southern foothills.
Southern Kazakhstan’s most vibrant city, with bustling bazaars and a lively downtown, Shymkent has more of a Central Asian buzz on its leafy streets than anywhere else in the country. It's mostly modern and brash, with a couple of good museums, but southeast of the main part of the city, across the small Koshkar-Ata canal, you’ll find the few remaining streets of pre-Russian Shymkent – a quiet, village-like area of wooden houses.
