Train Astana to Almaty

Postby fatimanorat » Tue Jun 12, 2018 10:21 am

Hi there, when looking for the tickets on the overnight train do we select Almaty 2 station? which is the best website to buy tickets for trains in Kazakhstan. Also can foreign children (9 year old) travel on a child ticket?

Thank you, Fatima

Both http://bilet.railways.kz and http://epay.railways.kz should work, I personally used the latter one. The train you're interested in is probably АСТАНА НУРЛЫЖОЛ - АЛМАТЫ 2. Mind that there are two train stations in both cities, so don't get lost on the way to the station ;-) The information about discounts is probably somewhere on the website, I don't know anything more, though.

I guess so, just check your station name on the ticket (АСТАНА or АСТ-НУРЛЫЖОЛ), and you'll easily look it up on Google Maps.
