As one of the world’s largest countries, Kazhakstan treats visitors to an abundance of marvellous landscapes and impressively crafted cities. Its capital, Nur-Sultan is a showcase of eye-catching, futuristic architecture, with the Bayterek viewing tower, pyramid-shaped Palace of Peace and Reconciliation Khan Shatyr Entertainment Centre among its most distinctive offerings. The equally impressive city of Almaty is lined with leafy avenues, independent restaurants and bustling shopping and nightlife destinations. Ascend Kok-Tobe hill by cable car and gaze down upon the city, or take a short journey to experience the exceptional beauty of Big Almaty Lake. Closely rivalling the magnificence of the lake is the breathtaking Charyn Canyon, where natural erosion has created an extraordinary landscape that's well worth a visit.
