Rough Guides puts Almaty firmly on the tourist map
January 19. KAZINFORM. ASTANA
The well-known travel series, “Rough Guides”, has published early January its top ten places to visit in 2014 – this year Almaty has come in at number seven on the list.
This is a welcome boost at a time when the city and area look to develop their potential as tourist centers, Kazinform refers to the weekly online publication Astana Calling. The guide writes, “Almaty remains Kazakhstan’s most alluring city. Its setting along the old Silk Road, with rippling mountains all around, is as exotic as they come.” (roughguides.com; capital.kz)
