Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Almaty accepting of differences?

Answer this Question

When we asked people about diversity in Almaty and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Almaty is a diverse city with a population that is made up of many different ethnicities, religions, and cultures. People in Almaty are generally accepting of differences and are tolerant of different beliefs and lifestyles. The city is home to a variety of religious and cultural institutions, and there are many opportunities for people of different backgrounds to interact and learn from one another," remarked another expat who made the move to Almaty, Kazakhstan.

"It's generally very relaxed. There is no dress code the women in summer wear very revealing clothes. Generally people are smartly dressed only the expats wear shorts in town. I have never seen homosexuals openly walking hand in hand as in Europe so I have the impression this is not tolerated, nor people kissing on the streets, so I assume its not done," explained one expat living in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
