Question: Kazakhstan - in two weeks?

Hi, I am planning to visit the Energy Expo-2017 in Astana with my daughter in August (only then she has the time). It is definitely a "must see" for us.

But we would also like to use the opportunity to visit other places in Kazakhstan: Almaty (of course), Karaganda/Dolinka, perhaps Taraz, Turkestan, and/or sites you would suggest or recommend.

We are both U.S. citizens (I am 69 years old), interested primarily in history and cultural activities (not that much wandering in the desert in August;-), and could stay in Kazakhstan for 2 weeks. Your suggestions and help would be highly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Dear Peter,

based on your request, I suggest that you arrive in Astana, visit the EXPO sites and have a city excursion. Then, you can travel to Karaganda and from there go to Karlag Museum in Dolinka village. Optionally visiting the Spassk Memorial and Karaganda city excursion can be offered. Next, I  suggest visiting the Begazy Necropolis dating back to Bronze age and located in the Karaganda Oblast. This place also offers a good insight into the authentic life of locals. However, you can travel directly to Turkestan. There are also cities Zhankent, Sauran and Otrar very interesting from the historical perspective and located in the nearby areas of Southern Kazakhstan. Further, you can travel to Almaty, see the city and the beautiful nature of that area, for instance, in Altyn-Emel National Park.

Apart from that, an interesting place to visit with a significant importance in the history of Kazakhstan is the Semipalatinsk Test Site. 

Let me know what you think!

Best wishes,
