Kazakhstan by Explore

On this adventure through the largest and wealthiest of the 'Stans, we explore the leafy streets of Almaty, discover Silk Road history in Turkestan and uncover eerie rusting ships in the middle of the desert where the Aral Sea once was. We also visit the Cosmodrome at Baikonur where we learn about the Soviet space programmes and, if we are lucky, we hope to encounter a rocket launch. The tour finishes in Kazakhstan's wealthy capital, where gleaming glass-fronted buildings unashamedly jostle for position to catch the eye.
