Arriving in Almaty

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Almaty and discover a city of fountains and lakes. This city will surprise you with its modern character and natural landscapes that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.

Plan Your Almaty Holiday

Travel to Almaty and discover a world that for a long time remained hidden from the European traveller. In the Tengri Umai Gallery you'll find an amazing selection of Soviet and local artists’ work, in the Central State Museum you will learn the history of Kazakhstan, and in the exclusive Arasan Baths you will be able to balance your mind and body through either Turkish, Finnish, or Russian methods.

If you purchase tickets to Almaty during the summer, you can explore the stunning Trans-Ili Alatau on horseback and refresh yourself in Alpine Lakes. If you take advantage of the off-peak season flight deals to Almaty, you can see these same areas under a beautiful blanket of snow and also enjoy winter sports. As this country has not yet been exposed to international tourism, it will be relatively easy to find cheap hotels in Almaty, except in the month of September, which is the busiest month of the year.

Major Airports in Saudi Arabia

For travel from Riyadh, the major airport is King Khalid International Airport (RUH). This is a huge airport; it serves over 13 million passengers a year and has an attached VIP terminal.

When flying out of Dammam, the closest airport is King Fahd International Airport (DMM). This is the largest airport in terms of area in the world, though it serves a relatively small number of passengers by comparison.

Airport Transportation in Saudi Arabia

Taxis to King Khalid International Airport are available throughout the city. Authorised taxis carry the airport logo and it is compulsory that they have meters. There are no buses to the King Khalid International Airport, but it is possible to get shuttles to and from nearby hotels.

Buses to King Fahd International Airport travel from all nearby cities and the fares are reasonable. Taxis to King Fahd International Airport are also available and take about 60 minutes from the centre of Dammam. At present there is no train service to either of the airports.

There are plenty of reasons to travel to Penang. The city is rich with history and culture as evidenced by the numerous historical buildings dating back hundreds of years. Preserving that history and the culture of its friendly people are the tasks of the Penang Museum and Art Gallery and the Penang Cultural Centre. Adding to the spectacular natural setting that surrounds this city are the numerous parks and gardens that dot the cityscape, such as the Penang Bird Park, Penang Botanical Gardens and the popular Orchid and Hibiscus Garden.

In February of every year the people of Penang celebrate the Chinese New Year over the course of 15 days. It is a very well-attended festival and it is highly recommended if you are travelling to the area during that time that you buy your tickets to Penang well in advance.
