If you enjoy the nightlife, Astana will not disappoint. Featuring a number of discothèques ranging from laid back to upscale, it is easy to find a place to boogie the night away. Being the potato-centric country that Kazakhstan is, you will also find a plethora of locally made vodkas to suit every palate. Some of the fancier varieties go for as much as $115 a bottle!
The Ak Bulak Sauna Complex is the most popular location in Astana for kicking back. Featuring steam rooms in many styles, including both Russian and Finnish, this steam house is conveniently located near the airport. A dip in the hot tub is a perfect way to relax your muscles after a long flight. They also have a decadent menu which is a real treat after hours of airplane food.
Astana is also known for its unique architecture, so you will want to be sure you pack a camera for this trip. The Bayterek Tower is often compared to a "giant lollipop" due to its spherical top. In the evenings, the tower is illuminated by color changing lights and the sphere glows bright for all to see. Khan Shatyry is another interesting structure, shaped somewhat like a leaning tent, the building houses a resort, a shopping mall, a mini golf course, a small river, and a park, all connected by quaint cobbled paths. Like Bayterek Tower, Khan Shatyry is also illuminated in the evenings, glowing blue, gold and red.
