  • MEGA

    I had heard of MEGA from my friend before going there that it was a really nice mall. And he was right. It was Super nice and clean.

There's a ice skating rink...

  • Buying carpets

    The concessions in the National Museum and Art Museum are as good a place as any to start looking at rugs in Almaty.

Not everywhere does, some countries...

  • Youbeleni shopping centre

    Simply the best selection of western goods in 1,000 miles (except baked beans, bacon, and sausages) Very expensive for Kazakhtsan, so slightly cheaper than the west.

  • Go book shopping!

    It was so in times of Soviet Union, it remains so now. In those shops (there are several of them all around the town) you can still find some rare editions of books, rare and not. That will be of much help to those who speak Russian, and of less help to those who speak English (only few of them, I am afraid). Still, some good albums on the...
