Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Landlocked between Russia and China, and surrounded by the shimmering Caspian Sea shores and the Altai and Tian Shan mountains, a trip to the exotic wilds of Kazakhstan will erase any association Westerners may have with the film Borat. Visit in May and find the slopes of the Tian Shan carpeted with tulips, base yourself in cosmopolitan Almaty and daytrip to the nearby mountains and forest (where the pious may encounter the legendary Buddhist kingdom of Shambala), or sample a glass of kumiss at a Kazakh dastarkhan. Now updated with more detail, Kazakhstan provides in-depth explanations of the rich and unique Kazakh traditions and nomadic heritage. The most comprehensive guide available, it's invaluable for anyone visiting or living in Kazakhstan.

Synopsis:

This is the most comprehensive guide to Kazakhstan on the market with full details on where to stay and eat, plus background information on the countrys history and people. This new, fully updated and revised second edition includes an expanded section on winter sports in Kazakhstan, more detailed sections on nightlife in Astana and Almaty and recommended itineraries for travel within Kazakhstan.
