This is a great travelogue. It'll have to be adapted somewhat to match the standard article format, but what it most needs now are some concrete facts to back it up - where is Almaty, how do you get there? etc. KJ 21:18, 17 Sep 2003 (PDT)

I agree. Please take a look at Goals and non-goals and Slippery_slopes as well as the City article template to get a feel for city guides. If you'd like to hear about other sites that are looking for more travelogue-style articles, let me know and I can send you soem links. Thanks. Majnoona

This page has been untouched for a long time. I have looked at how to edit it but, short of deleting it and starting again, it is difficult to kno where to start. I know nothing about this place in Kazakhstan, so am reluctant to do anything to what is a dead-end page. - Huttite 22:59, 9 Apr 2004 (EDT)


I'm moving some comments from the page to this page. Most of this is worth incorporating, but it's hard enough with the original travelogue. I'm going to try to dig some content out of the page and try to get it working, and then work this stuff back in. --Evan 14:45, 20 Apr 2004 (EDT)

Thank you for your opinion about our city and welcome to Almaty But few more details 1. Spelling - SCHYM-BU-LAK it means - 2. Generally - "Five finger" -is slang phrase which used non native persons right is "Kazak Et" - Kazakh Meat 3. This travel guide says about only formal ordinary plases in the city But also you can go to mountain lake (3500 m) In one side of city there are other lakes around Almaty with mountain environments On other side you can visit desert park with canyon no gigantic like in Colorado but on second place Also petroglifs and waterfalls

And weather not so cold and hot and much more

I moved the Almaty travelogue to Talk:Almaty/Travelogue, as a reference for making a real page. --Evan 14:48, 20 Apr 2004 (EDT)

I've tried to mine the travelogue for as much info as possible; another set of eyes might be able to dig out more nuggets. --Evan 15:21, 20 Apr 2004 (EDT)

Problems leaving by air[edit]

In May 2003, I left with a tour group (cancelled trip into China due to SARS) via the airport, based in an old administration building. Apparently, the international airport one had been burnt down. You MUST arrive several hours, say three, in advance of flight due to chaotic conditions and slow processing.. Also, my English travelling companion was hooked out of line at random and taken into the immigration office for a shakedown. He came out...shaking. I was asked to show my US$ and put them on the desk when my passport was stamped. I made sure I picked it ($50) up again when I moved on. Maybe things have changed, I hope so. Speak to local expats or friendly travel agents for advice if you have to leave by air.

Things have changed! Davidbstanley 05:39, 6 September 2007 (EDT)

The new myth of two stamps from a border not requiring you to register in local migration office is blunt lie. I had two stamps in September 2014 and still was prevented from leaving the country,kept on a border for 5 hours !? Spare yourself headache and REGISTER YOUR MIGRATION CARD IN LOCAL POLICE UPON ARRIVAL~!
