  • Somehow, when we visited the Botanical Garden, everywhere were signs with crossed the camera, and at the box office we have been warned that taking pictures is prohibited. Because of this we only walked and looked around. Nature is always good-but turned out to be a rough Grounds precisely because the rules of visitation.

Where to stay in Almaty

Accommodations in the urban area of Almaty can be found almost exclusively in the grid-system city center. Located close to the main train station, you'll find hotels both upmarket and budget, with the former enjoying commanding views of the mountains on tree-lined boulevards, and the latter tucked away on the central district's side streets. Ski resorts to the south, as well as wild camping opportunities, provide good options for those wanting to get active and enjoy the surrounding landscape.
