    We discovered a huge market public and popular. The Bazaar in Bishkek Osh offers a view of the wealth of this country: food, spices, specialties, handicrafts. It's wonderful! Must visit if you are passing in this city.

    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.

    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.
