New York-based Travel + Leisure magazine has prepared a seven-day itinerary for travelers wishing to visit Kazakhstan, including must-visit destinations, accommodation options, and a common phrases vocabulary, QazMonitor reports.

Highlighted destinations: On the first day, the editorial recommends starting with Astana, as the capital presents an architectural ensemble showcasing modern Kazakhstan. Then, Shymkent takes the stage for two days – first for the city proper, and second for the wonders of the Aksu-Zhabagly Nature Reserve. On day four, visitors are advised to visit Turkistan, while days five and six should be reserved for the bustling leisure activities of Almaty. To bid farewell to the country, the editorial advises to see the ancient Charyn Canyon.

Best time to visit Kazakhstan: Travel + Leisure advises travelers to visit the country between April and May or September and October, as due to the continental climate, the weather conditions in summer and winter can be quite harsh.

Why it matters: Travel + Leisure is an American monthly travel magazine published since 1937. Based in New York, it has around 4.8 million readers worldwide. The magazine specializes in leisure travel and features Kazakhstan alongside iconic hot spots like Tokyo and Hong Kong.
