  • The date starts as you both meet up at the famous Panfilov Park. You stroll along the park, admiring the Zenkov Cathedral, one of the world's tallest wooden buildings. Uncover fascinating stories about Almaty's history. The aroma of street food then catches your attention. You share a local delicacy while sharing about your favorite things.
  • Transitioning towards the bustling Green Market, you sample some local fruits and enjoy witnessing the daily hustle of the vendors. There is always something new to explore and something delicious to taste.
  • As the sun begins to set, creating a canvas of pastel hues, you make your way towards the famous Kok Tobe Hill. You take the funicular up to enjoy the panoramic views of the city beneath the dwindling daylight. After spending a wonderful day getting to know each other, you finish off the date with a delicious local snack at the top.

Preparation steps:

  • There's no significant preparation required other than being ready for a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. You might also want to research about some of the famous local street foods, so you know what to expect and can have fun guessing what's next on your food checklist.
  • Although it's a budget date, be prepared with enough cash as most of the street vendors do not accept cards. Also, check the weather forecast beforehand to ensure a clear and sunny afternoon.
  • Since it's a public place, always make sure to follow any local guidelines and restrictions. Also, be respectful of the local culture and traditions.

Some tips:

  • August is the perfect month to take the walk as the city is bustling and the weather is warm. So, apply some sunscreen and bring a hat or umbrella to protect against the sun.
  • If you're unfamiliar with local cuisine, don't hesitate to ask the vendors about their dishes - they're usually very friendly and willing to help you. Plus, it's a great experience to learn about different cultures through their cuisine.
  • Lastly, try not to rush. The goal here is to enjoy the process, your company, the food, and the city. It's not about getting from point A to point B, it's about the path you take, the taste you experience, and the stories you create together.
