Life in Kazakhstan can be very diverse, like the climate and people who live here.
In large cities infrastructure is well developed - roads, transport, communications. The layout of the cities is quite convenient - there are sleeping areas, commercial, industrial.
In Almaty shopping centers, shops, hospitals, polyclinics are located close to residential areas for the convenience of residents. The public transport network covers the city and the suburbs. In the central part of the city there is a metro, there are bike paths and a city bike rental service. Automobile traffic, of course, is bug, especially during rush hours.
Food facilities and prices are available and affordable. Visit markets, bazaars, where they sell fresh product for an adequate price.
In apartments and houses there are all communications. Hot, cold water, gas, electricity are in most cases present. If not, look for another, more comfortable housing. :)
