  • Dordoi-this is truly landmark Bishkek. At Dordoe has everything from pins to fur coats for Dordoi market supplies products diversity here and the whole of Asia goods Not obojdesh' and rolls over. per week. The people are very friendly and if you're still and the tourist will find you all., but your point to be closed will lead you to the seller, the goods which you interested. Market is mainly equipped with goods from China and Turkey, and of course plenty of traditional products like the total consumption and truly contemporary art Lovers artfully made. souvenirs that you can use in everyday life I would encourage silver jewelry and "shyrdak"-national felt carpet.

  • About the widest range of I will not say anything. The prices are also not Ahti if retail take an entirely different approach to wholesale purchases. But most importantly, I wanted to mention-exchangers. Knowing that there are evil at hand, people traded carefully and accurately. Many courses, it would seem! Most convenient for the customer, where the course or does not have the correct currency, you insolent prank or divorce! Went to the exchanger with 10000 KZT rate-0.206 respectively must give 2 060 catfish. Instead, it emits com 2006! Started something treated Pro course 0.200, pretending that I didn't understand. Asked to refund my money, he looked at me appreciative, but still returned. Another caveat-no diagrams or pointers, if you do not know where to find you can spend all day and still not found.

  • Great bazaar which had a diverse amount of vendors. My only regret is that we did not spend more time there. Would have loved to see a lot more.  more »
