    Lovely scenery but with very limited facilities. It could be that our timing was wrong as it was early January. Will definitely bring some friends with.

    A crazy market with buzzing crowds, offering a variety of local products and unique experience of meeting people from all walks of life. There are plenty of eateries, shops and roadside stalls that keep everyone busy. The smells and colours are enjoyable. A must visit to feel the pulse of this beautiful city and experience the vibrancy of life.

    We had a mixed experience visiting here. We were allocated a museum guide to take our small group round the museum. She was totally hopeless and did not seem to know anything! Most of us drifted off to explore the exhibits alone. A lot of the interactive displays were not working. On the other hand, we found many of the exhibits interesting especially the top floor dedicated to more modern times. We were told we could not take any photographs inside but a lot of other visitors were. A confused visit overall.

    One of the best winter trips I have ever taken. As a single female traveler always traveling solo, I was apprehensive about a snowy winter hike up a canyon. My tour guide was simply amazing. Mars was everything I could have asked for to feel secure & adventurous. First though, I have to say, my flight to Bishkek was diverted to Almaty due to snow & ice weather so I thought I would forfeit my tour. After speaking with Mars, he assured me that as I was the only participant for the day, he would await my flight. I arrived in Bishkek, 3 hours later and he was waiting.
    It was an exciting drive in the snow to the Canyon and a great hike up & back. He had a surprise tea on the peak overlooking the canyon, as well as brief stops at an excellent local eatery where I sampled delicious local meal & tea.
    I would highly recommend this tour with him.

    This museum is dedicated to the life of Mikhail Frunze, who is said to have been a candidate to replace Lenin in the early years of the Soviet Union. He is a character with whom many are unfamiliar but because of his special status even the city of Bishkek had been named after him for many years. It's interesting to spend some time in the museum learning about Funze.

    We were curious to see what it's all about, so we took a yandex there (quite a bit away from city center). We needed some comfy pairs of shorts and found them. Prices were very affordable, staff eager to sell but not overbearing.
    You just need to pay attention to your wallet, as everywhere, and also get out of the way as there are people with carts all over the place. It is a bit chaotic, but if you need something, you will probably find it there.

    This museum has some wonderful Kyrgyz carpets and interesting paintings. It is worth visiting while in Bishkek.
