When traveling abroad, I always use the CityPass card whenever possible, because it is cheaper to visit the sights of the city on this card, and most importantly-you do not have to stand in 2 queues: the first to the ticket office for tickets, and the second queue to see the selected object. Returning from these trips I always wondered when we will have such a project?
Today, on July 03, Astana officially launched the City Pass Astana project-an analog of the tourist card widely used in Europe and the United States. This is the usual way for foreign tourists to visit a new city.
Currently, Astana has launched 2 pilot projects Astana CityPASS and EXPO CityPASS, which significantly facilitate the stay of tourists in the capital and save not only time, but also money. Savings range from 20 to 50 %. By the end of the year, it is planned to open a single tourist card Almaty CityPASS.
City tour on 2-storey buses, free entrance to the national Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan (free access to the main halls), the monument “Astana-Baiterek”, “Oceanarium” are available with a smart card for 72 hours, as well as special offers and discounts -15% from more than 30 of the best institutions in the city, including restaurants with different national cuisines “Kazak Kurmet”, “Yakitoria”, “Bagrationi”, hotels “Beijing Palace”, “Grand Park Yesil”, “Duman”, and a lot of entertainment “Sky Beach Club”, “trampolines-gravity”.
In addition, you will receive a guide in 4 languages (Kazakh, Russian, English and Chinese) with a description of all the objects that are included in the program, a Beeline SIM card with a favorable tariff plan “Welcome”. In order to accurately calculate your time, the kit includes a map of the city with the location of objects and useful information.
