My last day of Russian trip : Dasvidaniya Russia

This video is about the last day of my Russian trip-2017. Time to say Dasvidanidya Russia.
On the early morning of 1st October, I reached Omsk from Novosibirsk. The 8-hour long journey was very comfortable. Watch this video to know the cost of the train ticket and how did I get the ticket at Novosibirsk train station.

Omsk train station

This was the second time I was at the Omsk station. Watch this video to see my first ever experience at Omsk train station. After arriving from Novosibirsk in the early morning, I used the free toilet facility to freshen up. Then I relaxed for few hours in the waiting hall. Waiting halls are called Sitting area in Russian train stations. Sitting area is elegant and clean. The entire station’s architecture is beautiful. I clicked some pictures of the beautiful interiors and also enjoyed the free WiFi at Omsk train station.

Omsk train station to Omsk Aiport

There is a bus terminal just outside the Omsk train station. According to the information, I got from the people; Bus number 60 goes from Omsk train station to the Airport. The fare is around 20 Ruble. However, I could not travel on that bus as it was said to non-functional for that day. I booked Uber cab with the help of Google Maps. Uber charged 121 Rubles from the train station to the Omsk airport.

Omsk Airport

Omsk does not have a big airport. My flight was scheduled around 4:30 pm and I had around 3-4 hours to gather significant information about the airport. WiFi is available for free at the airport, but you have to log-in after every half an hour to use the service. Drinking water is also available for free. No English – The crucial information on signboards and indicators are not displayed in English. It was a challenge to find someone from the airport staff who could speak English.
Immigration and Security check was smooth for me.

Astana Airport

After a 50 minutes flight from Omsk, I reached Astana, the capital city of Kazakhstan. Thanks to Air Astana, the flying experience was quite good. But I must admit that the ground staff of Air Astana has to improve a lot. In Astana, I had to struggle a lot to find someone from the airlines. They do not have any office in the terminal building where I landed. I was given wrong information by the ground staff that in the next flight to Delhi I will not be served vegetarian meals. I was hungry at that time and angry at the carrier.

Finally, I arrived at Delhi at midnight. Flying from Astana to Delhi with Air Astana was a good experience. The crew members were very courteous and professional. ‘Rakhmit’ (thanks in the Kazakh language) to Air Astana Cabin crew.

Hi Varun, have been a avid follower and subscriber of your channel on youtube. Needed your help on a few queries. I believe when you returned to India on Air-Astana, there was only 1 stop-over in Astana. Now there are two stops – Almaty and Astana. My question is – Do we require a transit visa for Kazakhstan since will be travelling from Omsk to Delhi via Almaty and Astana. I do not wish to go out of both the airports and am ok to stay around the transit areas. Tried calling the Kazakh Embassy in Delhi but I could not understand what they were saying. Hope you can assist me on this.

Hi,
If there are 2 stops in a particular country, then you may be required to get its visa. So in your case, I think you need a Kazakh visa. Still its better to call Air Astana.

Where you keep your bag when using toilet? Do you carry them with you or keep in some secure place/baggage counter?
