Voice of Travelers to Astana

First summer trip in

Hello, I am Fae, an environmental conservationist from Toronto. I decided to buy a ticket to Astana for this summer to visit the international expo. I bought a ticket to Astana and a ticket to visit the expo. The Astana Expo was a great place to learn more about the future of energy. I also wanted to avail the most out of the ticket so I also roamed around in Astana a little. I loved the eclectic architecture and rich history. Because I am an environmentalist, I decided to stay in an Astana holiday village. They were outside of the busy downtown of Astana but still a part of the city. I stayed at the Guest House "Arlan". The view was breathtaking and the place even offered recreational activities. I believe spending my money of both of the ticket was worth it because I not only met people, visited the expo, learned new things, but I also got to experience a way of living that I admire.

Architecture tour

Hello, my name is Vera and I am an architect live in Dubai. In summer, I decided to buy a ticket for Astana because I had learned a lot about its architecture. I wanted to visit to explore the city. For my previous vacation, when I bought my ticket, I accidentally spelled my name incorrectly on the ticket. I was nervous about travelling with an incorrect official name on the ticket. I tried to get it changed but in the end travelled with the same ticket. This time, I decided to buy a ticket with a travel agency. It was a very smooth process and no spelling mistakes on the ticket were made. Since I now live in Dubai, I am now used to seeing many mosques. The mosque in Astana were, however, very different. I loved the architecture. The downtown skyscrapers were also beautifully built. I came back to Dubai inspired and energized.
