Almaty - Post Report Question and Answers
What kind of vehicle(s) including electric ones do you recommend bringing to post, given the terrain, infrastructure, availability of parts, burglary/carjacking risks, etc.? What kind of car or vehicles do you advise not to bring?
If you like going camping, or to explore some mountain terrains, a 4x4 with high clearance will be best. In winter most people switch to winter tires to be safe in case of icy conditions. Not heard of car jacking or breaking, some people drive aggressively, honking is normal here, but it’s still very pedestrian friendly and lots of school age kids walk to school and feel safe. - Sep 2023
