Almaty - Post Report Question and Answers

Morale among expats:

Ok. - Jul 2013

I think its good. Snowy weather and smog wear you down, but a day in the mountains cures it. The daily grind of ridiculous traffic, rude drivers, stupid "Sovietski" rules, etc. makes it a challenge sometimes. - Feb 2013

Expats in Almaty usually come in one of two types: those with former Soviet experience and those without. Morale definitely tends to be higher in the former group, but it's good overall. - May 2012

Pretty good, especially in Spring/Summer. - Mar 2010

Fair..... to good. - Mar 2008
