I have lived in Almaty for 8 years and the costs provided are pretty close to reality. My rent for a 1 room apartment right in the city center is 140,000Tenge p/month and that includes all utilities and wifi. Food in the local supermarkets and bazaar is very cheap. I live comfortably on less than US1,000 per month. Local people often make do on a lot less because salaries are low here.
#Anon on Feb 17, 2019 :
why do you compare us with New York?! I am with Almaty and it is very convenient for me to live here. We have cheaper costs than you wrote. Almaty is a very beautiful city that has been developed for a long time. We have many Shopping centers, markets and many entertainment. very well. But don `t know why you let us down here
#Alina on Nov 26, 2018 :
I live in Almaty and can confirm that the prices are very close to reality. Except for 1 bedroom rent - for this money you'll probably rent just a studio (one room, no separate bedroom). As per taxi for 1.4-4 dollars you can get everywhere inside of the city limits.
#alex on Nov 23, 2018 :
Hey could I live comfortably there with 1000 usd per month?
#assem on Nov 19, 2017 :

) after i stay in almaty couple of months and i see your comparison i lost my trust in the data you offer .
almaty coming expensive than cairo ????????
from where you are getting this numbers ???? i do lost my trust in here
#Anonymous on Mar 06, 2016 :
You are doing people a dis-service by calling the apartments 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom, etc. They are sold or rented as 1 ROOM and 2 ROOM apartments not including the vanity/toilet and kitchen. What you do with each room is up to you, but expect the 1 ROOM apartment to serve as bedroom, living room and dining room.

Also, would you please put all measurements in metric as that is how they do it in Kazakhstan.
#Mostafa on Jan 28, 2016 :
Hello guys !
How is the rent I Almaty city is it high or low compared to UAE , Dubai
#Super Hero on Apr 06, 2015 :
Taxi 1 km (Normal tariff) is around 100 KZT, not 200 KZT. Only expensive taxis charge 200 KZT per km.

Prices of fruits and vegetables are extremely dependant on season - the most expensive in winter and spring.
