  • It's the market of Central Asia, there is simply everything, textile, all types of equipment, mobile catering... everything is findable, it's so big we can if lose to every moment, so well target your needs, you're not at all make an afternoon even in sprinting. The market is split into different areas, I advise you to stay in the Kyrgyz area, in any case for clothing because finally you will find the same products as in others, to lower advertised prices. Speak Russian, it is better, everything is negotiable and the Kyrgyz product quality is known to be of very good quality. Let's go by bus you come back full of bags by taxi.

  • I don't know, it is not great. If you went to Osh bazaar then give Dordoi a miss. Personally for me Osh bazaar was much more exciting.  more »
