Siamo tornati ad Almaty dopo una notte sulle panchine dell'aeroporto di Astana. Distrutti ma contenti per gli incontri con delle belle persone. Ora ci aspettano due giorni di attesa per il mitico treno che ci portera' in Cina, ad Urumqi. Non abbiamo molte forze e fa di nuovo caldo, ma ci spingiamo fin sulla collina di Kok-Tobe, da cui c'e' l' …
... for the airport tonight.
Our cars were ready at 8:30pm, and we headed for an easy drive to the airport. Check-in was very slow and complicated, and the lounge was basically worthless … the seats might have been slightly nicer, but there was a charge for food and drinks. Silly. But the flight was on-time, and business class in Asiana was nice enough. The seats were angled, which is annoying, when fully reclined, but I really shouldn’t ...

John and I complained, went to the ...
... After we drove round Karakol for 30 minutes unable to find the pandas, we found a hotel and went straight out to a club and had a great evening - I didn't leave the dance floor.
A border crossing and 2 mountain ranges to get to Almaty the next day. The mountain pass to the border was not a road - just large rocks and boulders near each other. It was tough on the cars and the drivers, but the scenery was the best of the trip so far. Green alpine mountains with ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Zhetysu Almaty
a creapy soviet-style hotel, that has maybe been once a nice one. But now that's only a leftover of an old wealthy era. It's maybe the only cheap place to stay in Almaty (10 euros/person/night if you ask for the "hostel").
