Almaty, the former capital, still stands as the country's largest city.
Take a break from Almaty with a short trip to Turgen Waterfalls in Turgen, about 1h 30 min away. On the 17th (Wed), spend a day exploring the natural beauty of Kara Dala. Spend the 18th (Thu) exploring nature at Altyn-Emel. There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Big Almaty Lake, take in the awesome beauty at Kok-Tobe Hill, hit the slopes at Shymbulak Ski Resort, and find something for the whole family at Almaty Central Park.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airport is Almaty Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in July, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
