Bishkek

Trip Planner Asia  /  Kyrgyzstan  /  Bishkek
Wandering the grid-like, tree-lined streets of Bishkek, you'll discover the friendly atmosphere, vibrant nightlife, and Soviet-era architecture of the country's political center. Since the city is relatively modern, tourism in Bishkek doesn't rely much on historic sights, although a couple of museums, monuments, and important buildings merit a visit. Instead, visitors usually flock to the city for its lively bars and cafes, verdant parks, and broad boulevards crossed with canals and lush greenery. Its proximity to the hiking trails and lakes of the Tien Shan mountains adds plenty of ideas for a Bishkek itinerary. Check out traditional garments and souvenirs sold in the bustling bazaar, and sample the famous local dishes, rich in meat and dairy products. In the build up to your vacation in Bishkek, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Kyrgyzstan online driving holiday planner .
