Kazakhstan travel budget Jan 06, 2011
Period visited: 2010 16 nights
Visa cost: 45 Euro / 30 days
Budget per day: 65 Euro
Actual per day: 62 Euro
Why so cheap/expensive?
Accommodation is very expensive in Kazakhstan as is transportation (unless you can reserve your trains a few weeks in advance). I couch-surfed 5 nights, which cut down the costs, though I ended up doing a lot of partying with these people. Food and alcohol (and coffee!) is quite expensive in the major cities.
Can it be cheaper?
Only if you spend every night couch surfing or on overnight trains. And stay away from bars in Almaty and Astana.
Food & Drinks:
Beer: €1.50 (outside Almaty/Astana), up to €10 in a bar in Astana
Single room: €15
4-bed apartment: €45 (Almaty)
