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.

#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.

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.
