Almaty, the former capital, still stands as the country's largest city. Set against a backdrop of soaring, snow-capped peaks, the metropolis possesses a well-maintained city center, with a set of green parks, public squares lined with stylish cafes and restaurants, and thriving commercial districts with malls and traditional markets. The nightlife in Almaty offers an experience not found in many Central Asian cities, with a wealth of nightclubs staying open until the wee hours, and a collection of bars popular with travelers and residents young and old. A transport hub, the city offers convenient access to the surrounding alpine landscape, with trips to ski resorts and hiking trails forming an essential part of any Almaty vacation.

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.
