Almaty

Almaty ©
Almaty, the former capital, still stands as the country's largest city.
Step out of the city life by going to Altyn-Emel and Lake Issyk. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to St. Nicholas Cathedral and The Central Mosque of Almaty. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at A. Kasteyev Museum of Fine Arts, admire the striking features of Army House of Kazakhstan Republic, pause for some photo ops at Glory Memorial, and examine the collection at Military-Historical Museum.

For more things to do, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Almaty trip site.

Singapore, Singapore to Almaty is an approximately 15- hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Singapore to Almaty due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Singapore in August, expect slightly colder with lows of 19°C in Almaty. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Wed) early enough to travel to Karaganda.
