Kazakhstan is the world’s ninth biggest country, and it’s got a lot more going for it than oil and sheer size.
Thanks to abundant natural resources Kazakhstan is probably the best developed of the "stans". You’re more likely to get a good coffee on the leafy streets of Almaty than anywhere else on the Central Asian steppe, and the country’s new capital, Astana, is a 21st-century showcase of modern architecture and futuristic design. Not what you’d expect from a country where few travellers have yet to venture. Whatever your expectations are, leave them in the arrivals lounge. Kazakhstan defies them all.
