Kazakhstan

6 posts in this topic

Work has yet again allowed me to travel to somewhere the average tourist does not. This time Almaty in Kazakhstan. Alamty is located in the south of the country and used to be the capital city and still is the largest city.

Firstly let us deal with the work of fiction that is 'Borat' which was filmed in Romania anyway! Forget the stereotypes of really bad looking women wrapped up for a soviet winter, although they do exist they are the exception rather than the norm. The ladies that I have observed going about their daily business are exceptionally attractive and dress accordingly in western fashion and seem to have a penchant for really high heels and figure hugging dresses.

The working girls are no exception and there are some real head turners. they range from the traditional oriental, high cheek boned with long dark hair, to ladies who are blonde and almost 'germanic' looking from the more western parts of the former soviet union and all the shades in between.

There are a few sites which advertise on the internet and these can be found by using google or any other search engine. These seem to be the dearest in price and since I have not used that service I will comment no further, although prices quoted seemed to be $200-300 USD for an hour I am not sure if this is negotiable. Girls work the lobbies of most hotels. This is condoned by whoever runs security for that particular hotel in return for up to 50% of their takings (this info came directly from a WG). This is worth remembering if you intend to bring in 'outside talent' to your hotel room that you will have to either escort your WG from outside your hotel to your room or phone recetion to grant her access., the former probably better.

Ladies are also found working various bars and clubs, again they give some sort of cut to the doormen/security. they are very up front and will approach you directly. Only some will speak good enough english to converse with. All will speak Russian. The ones we encountered weere friendly enough and not too pushy, but will give you a 'business card' a piece of paper with their details on, if you change your mind later. Prices quoted from both hotel and bar girls were sketchy at best, and they rely on you not knowing the lie of the land so to speak to get a better price for themselves. The price brackets ranged from $50 for an hour and a half to $200-400 dollars for an hour! to the same price for a 'few hours'. It is best to negotiate beforehand (before I am besieged with hate mail from WGs in the UK reading this, this practice seems to be the norm across here, not only with WGs but with taxis and other services too!) All prices quotes were in USD although Tenge is the local currency and that is what I used. Remember because you are 'western' it is automatically assumed that you are rich and this is refelcted in the intial price you can be quoted. The bench mark I used was that I would not pay over and above what i would pay in the UK for similar services.

There are also girls who work the streets at various corners I had no dealings with them, so I cannot not comment on them further apart from they appeared well dressed an very good looking. don't confuse them with girls on a night out trying to get a 'gypsy cab' (an unoffical unmarked cab) which to the unitiated looks like soliciting.

Happy travels

You will find not just here but the neighbouring countries are spiralling upwards with the current money from oil and natural minerals appearing endless, not to mention the hidden "tier" that all countires have (and the American Money floating about)....

I like to go off the beaten track and some of my travels have taken me to breath-taking places...you know, the view and expereinces you only dream about...

I cannot comment on the ladies there apart from on a social aspect where they were charming, sweet and humourous, not to mention drop dead gorgeous...

Good report Cross, Kazahkstan Is a place I've never been, but I have met Eurasian girls, and some are very attractive.

I take It speaking some Russian would help you, what sort of rates would the girls settle for once they realise you're not a rich fool?

Sorry for the lateness in my reply but due to work I had intermitent internet access. However to answer jerboa's quesion, the going rate was anything between $50-$100 USD. My experience was a girl from the hotel lobby in my room. Undoubtedly she was being pimped as the phone rang 10 mins before to get her to finish up and she explained her situation.

As for the enounter is was well above average, if she was local to me I would visit again. I did try with some indies advertising on the net. However the ones I tried were either uninterested or not working that night.

I have not met any indie girls back home, everything I knew were middle aged women in designated areas :)

Taking into account living costs in Almaty I'd say $50 per hour would translate into £150 in London, $400 is what an average secretary would earn per month, I.e some high class London girls rate of £2000 per hour (!!) I am yet to meet £2000 girl haha :D

Not a very clear post, what has £2000 London girls got to do with Kazakstan?
