Bus from Urumqi (China) to Almaty (Kazakhstan)

Postby suniggurath » Sun Jun 02, 2019 7:19 am

I live in China, Xian. So today I have been told that to buy a train ticket from Urumqi to Almaty, I need to buy it directly in Urumqi... which sounds impossible for me right now.
Do anybody now if there is a bus between Urumqi and Almaty?

Thanks!

I've been told that this train can be booked online on 12306(dot)com. I had a look but didn't go through with it as my plans changed. The site is in Chinese and google couldn't translate, so you'll need to enlist a Chinese speaker's help.

Hi, I can speak Chinese and still I was unable to use 12306(dot)com due to problems with the app. Also, I was told I need to collect the ticket in train station in person too... All in all, I think trying to buy a bus ticket might be the best.

Don't waste your time! You cannot buy tickets to Almaty on 12306.cn.
