Recently made infamous by the ever-ridiculous Borat, Kazakhstan has much more to offer than its pop-culture reputation suggests! The country only recently gained independence from Russia in 1991 and is now avidly trying to break its way into the global scene. As such, more emphasis is being placed on transitioning the common second language to English in place of Russian (read: they need good English teachers, and they are willing to pay!).

The largest landlocked country in the world also has a whole slew of different types of land and ecosystems, making it excellent for exploring on your days off. By crossing Kazakhstan (and its two time zones and five different climate areas), you can encounter snowy mountains, beaches, canyons, and sand dunes!
