I was there to buy a natural honey but I spent around 2 hours over there. So they were plenty of options and I did not know really which one is the best. Finally I choosed one which I did not regret afterwards

Almaty's 'Zelyoni Bazaar' or 'Green Market' is worthwhile visiting as is almost any market in the world. But all in all it is not a very exiting place. The sale takes place on two floors. Fruit and vegetables are on sale mainly at the ground...More
