Kazakhstan is the ninth-largest country in the world and has a huge range of exciting landscapes to explore, from canyons to flatlands and snow-capped mountains to deserts. This makes it ideal for anyone seeking adventure, whether you want an authentic experience with Kazakh nomads or a tranquil break by the shores of the Caspian Sea. The economy is stable, relying on oil and gas exports as well as textiles, wheat and livestock from its fertile plains. The city of Almaty and the capital Astana are the most populous and the most popular with expats, but you can find a vibrant and engaged expat community all over this vast country.
