The plastic card will allow tourists to visit the sights of the metropolis for three days, the press service of NC Kazakh Tourism JSC reports.
The kit includes a plastic smart card with a microchip for access to attractions, a travel guide with a description of the city and links to audio guides of cultural sites and a router in three languages. Also in the package you can find a detailed map of Almaty, a sim card for communication and a transport card “Onai”. The cost of such a multifunctional card is 5,990 tenge.
The organizers of the project present the uniqueness of the map by the fact that guests and residents of the city will be able to take city tours, while saving a lot of time and money. 12 tourist sites of Almaty have already been registered in the map.
Rashid Kuzembayev, Chairman of the Management Board of NC Kazakh Tourism JSC, notes that this is the second smart card of a tourist that is being launched in Kazakhstan.
“We are talking about the launch in Almaty of a smart card similar to those that already exist in the largest cities and tourist centers of the world – New York, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Paris, Berlin, London, Oslo and others. This is the second smart card of a tourist that is being launched in Kazakhstan. CityPASS already exists in Astana, and in the future it is planned to launch in the Shchuchinsk-Borovskaya resort area. Given the availability of such maps in almost all major cities of the world, I believe that our cities and tourist centers should not be an exception,” he explained.
