People have asked about where I live in Almaty. I live closer to the mountains at Sun Valley Apartments not far from Medeo. This is a great area since there is less pollution here.
Many people will families live here. It is more of an upper middle class area with similar type of apartments in the area. There are also many homes as well. There are a few supermarkets but Mega has the best one. Mega is about 5 minutes away by taxi.
I live in a two bedroom apartment which is quite space though I can only use one of the bedrooms.
In Saigon the equivalent of an apartment would be The Manor.
