===By plane===
There are two airports. The international airport, "Tuimaada," gets regular direct flights from [[Moscow]], [[Saint Petersburg]], [[Novosibirsk]], [[Krasnoyarsk]], [[Irkutsk]], [[Khabarovsk]], and a few other major cities in Russia. It There are also gets a direct flight flights by Yakutia Airlines once a week -on Thursday- from [[Harbin]], [[China]]and from Beijing by S7 air. The domestic airport, "Magan," mostly serves flights within Yakutia, as well as private flights. During the winter, Yakutsk often has fog, sometimes lasting for days or even weeks. The airport may be closed as a result, or flights can be delayed by several hours. Although Russian airlines do land in some amazingly poor visability, sometimes the conditions are so bad that even Russian pilots will not attempt it. It is not unusual for passengers to Yakutsk to find themselves staying in Magadan or some other alternate city instead, sometimes for days. The airline personnel generally will be most unhelpful in providing information about when you can continue on to Yakutsk, and they will not offer hotel accomodations or meals to passengers who have been stranded. It is advisable to carry at least some emergency money just in case you end up stranded somewhere.
To get from the international airport to the city center, you can take a taxi (15-20 min), or one of the buses #4, 5, & 20 (30-40 min). Magan is a bit further out, and a taxi ride to the city center will take 30-40 min; the bus "Yakutsk-Magan" will take a little over an hour.

There are two dance floors, allowing up to 800 people to dance at once, which play R&B, pop, and light house F-Sa, and house/trance Su-Th. Every now and then they'll have special 80s nights. (At this point, some shock should register that this all goes on in the coldest and remotest corridors of [[Siberia]]!) The cover charge (as well as the expensive drinks, 80+ rubles for 0.5 liter beers) make this a fairly upscale hangout for wealthier Yakutskie.</drink>
