  • Perhaps the most horrible place in Bishkek. Dirt, stink, shorter full insanitary conditions. In addition, there are wielded by scammers of all stripes and pickpockets, and those who "himichit" when exchanging currencies. If you do not want to spoil the impression of the city itself, in no way go to the OSH market.

  • Ok bazaar. Most of Chinese and warehouse/hardware materials. Also has some traditional souvenir and Chinese copies. It is fine to get lost for an hour or two, but not really big.
  • The must place to visit in bishkek. Everything you can negotiate here including food. Is they said 200som, you can ask for 130-150som.
  • Great place to buy local food and even some souvenirs
  • Everything you could need! Souvenirs available, great Kyrgyz honey and nits and dried fruit. If you're a foreigner, take along your passport. Have been stopped by police and asked for it several times.
  • you can find here very tasty KURUT! Careful to the wallet
