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.

Flying from China

Reserve your flights from China to many intriguing destinations and travel in comfort when you fly with Etihad Airways.

Major Airports in China

From Beijing, passengers can fly from Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK). As the busiest airport in Asia, Beijing Capital is often crowded and so boarding passengers should plan to arrive early. There are numerous facilities, including the global kitchen where passengers can dine on the cuisines of many different nationalities.

Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) serves the city of Shanghai. The airport is located about 30km from Shanghai city centre and should not be confused with Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (SHA) on the west side, which serves mostly domestic flights.

Airport Transportation in China

The futuristic Maglev Train to Shanghai Pudong Airport runs from the Longyang Road Metro Station, taking less than 8 minutes to travel 30 km. A taxi to Shanghai Pudong Airport takes between 45 and 60 minutes. Ten different bus lines offer a bus service to Shanghai Pudong Airport from Shanghai city centre.

A train to Beijing Capital Airport is the best travel option with the Airport express running directly to Terminals 2 and 3, taking 20 minutes from the Dongzhimen area in Beijing city.

Plan Your Ko Samui Holiday

When you travel to Ko Samui, you will always find something beautiful to appreciate or a new activity in the ocean to excite you. It certainly never gets boring in Ko Samui when there is gorgeous weather around you. Despite having a warm climate all year round, Ko Samui still has occasional showers that happen for about three hours before going back to a sunny day. This typically happens during the off-peak season in late July to September.

The peak season is from November to May, due to perfect weather and numerous tourists visit to enjoy the warm weather. However, the perfect tropical weather with calm oceanic breezes takes place during late December to March. If you desire to visit during ideal tropical weather, we suggest reserving your tickets to Ko Samui several months in advance to evade the crowds of tourists.
