What’s the best way to get around Astana?
The most convenient way to explore Astana is via one of the many cheap taxis scuttling around the winding streets. Official taxis exist, but a popular option is to opt for a street taxi, as they usually cost a lot less and can be used to visit some of the city’s more obscure sights. If you want to travel like a local there is always the public bus service, which is simple to navigate even if you can’t speak a word of the language!
What’s the weather like in Astana?
Make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen if you visit Astana in July when the average temperatures hit 22°C (78°F).

Visiting during the drier months of May-June gives you the perfect atmosphere to explore Astana’s sublime landmarks.
