  • The last year or two have practically no visit this market! Of course, prices are lower than in supermarkets and vegetables fresh and have a choice, but ... If you go by car, it's pretty hard to find a parking space! So, if you go there, it is better to its course. But with heavy bags difficult to reach again on public transport! In General, I pereplachu maybe, but otovarivajus' at hypermarket, especially near the house built hypermarket "Kiwi" where buy everything: starting with toilet paper and finishing meat. Why, because of time, anguish with parking, walking on to a large market. then comes! But it's my purely personal opinion! Bazaars-neot'emlemaja is a part of life in Central Asia, so any tourists, I recommend to visit this place and breathe local flavor!

  • Really interesting place! A giant market for clothes, electronics, street food, bakery, various nuts and dried fruits (which are unbelievably cheerio by the way here). You can also find kumis but you need to search for it a little. Worth a try!
  • The big part is closed on Monday but even seeing the smaller part is very interesting to see as it serves as shopping centre for locals. I got my hair cut without knowing Russian or Kyrgyzi - good value and quality (although I was most likely ripped off - 250kgs (4USD) which is price equal to small town in Czech Republic that is country with higher purchase power and price levels).
  • Must-to-see. Asian bazaar. Very crowded. Can find anything about food (organic ones especially).
  • A really interesting place to visit. You can breathe the atmosphere of Bishkek here. The sortiment is huge from traditional kyrgyz food to clothes and souvenirs. Prices compared to Europe are amazingly low.
  • Great place to buy dried fruit and nuts. Most come from Kyrgyz producers.
