Kazakhstan Travel Blog

Travel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Kazakhstan

Hello and welcome to our Kazakhstan travel blog. You will find all our Kazakhstan blog posts in this section of our website.

Maybe you found our Kazakhstan travel blog because you are considering a visit to Central Asia, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to Kazakhstan. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Kazakhstan.

We were supposed to return to Kazakhstan in autumn 2020 but we all know what happened to those travel plans! We’ve got our next trip all mapped out ready and waiting for when we can travel to Kazakhstan.

Our Kazakhstan blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
