Almaty, the former capital, still stands as the country's largest city.
Let the collections at Central State Museum of Kazakhstan and A. Kasteyev Museum of Fine Arts capture your imagination. Head to Zelyony Bazaar and Esentai Mallfor some retail therapy. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Almaty: Tabagan (in Besqaynar) and Astoria Casino (in Kapchagay). Spend the 23rd (Fri) exploring nature at Altyn-Emel. Spend the 31st (Sat) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Ascension Cathedral, view the masterpieces at Arvest Art Gallery, see the interesting displays at Museum of Folk Music Instruments named after Yihlasa, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Issyk.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Almaty route builder site .

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major airport is Almaty Airport. In August, daytime highs in Almaty are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 19°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
