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.

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.
#Anonymous on Aug 15, 2014 :
Cost of tomato is around 150 tenge per kilo. It is like that due to the season – it is summer now - of course during winter cost is around 500 tenge.

SO in general lowest fruits and vegetables costs are in August Sept, while the peak prices are in Nov-March
