    Boarded the bus at Chui Avenue and requested the conductor to inform me on arrival at Osh Bazar.Alighted the bus at a junction and walked towards the large building that was a shopping mall named Besh Sary Siti.Osh Bazaar was located just behind this landmark building , a typical Asian Bazaar. Osh Bazaar was created in 1983 , crowded and packed with street vendors and shops selling various products. The re are different sections in the bazar .Designer counterfeit footwear was on sale as also clothing and a host of other products. The food products section sells everything from "Horse meat Sausages" to dry fruits and vegetables.With great language difficulty traced the " Dairy section" of the Bazaar which was a large enclosed market with women selling various dairy products. Tasted "Kymz", the fermented milk of mares which is slightly alcoholic and a national drink in Kyrgyzstan. If visiting Bishkek then a visit to "Osh Bazar" is mandatory.

    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.

    Whether your shopping for designer clothes, little trinkets, coffee, food or even bowling there is alot of offer at this mall
    Cinema, restaurant, fast food and even a super market as well as your standard phone shops
    A few 'side/table' shops where you can get more tourist items!
    Would recommend to come, and could easily spend a day here

    The bus is very convenient, costing only 20 som. You can get on and off at any stop. The 2GIS app is very helpful; you must install it. Google Translate is essential. Get an Oi SIM card with unlimited internet. Do not go to Osh Bazaar if you're traveling alone. If you know Russian, you won't have any issues. The city is clean and neat. The Yandex app is also useful for transportation. Be sure to clarify your order when eating out. Avoid encouraging taxi drivers.

    When you first visit Tsum, you may think that you came in old electronic bazaar Gorbushka (famous place in Moscow). You need to focus, turn left and going thru the elevators, thats way you get in big Center with stores and good cinema. The pie on the top its adventure park for kids there. If you have toddlers from 4 to 7 this is place for you! Super cheap price (around $5) and your baby can play all day long. Entertainment, i mean slides, trampolines and other kids stuff a little "tired", but OK! Recommend for parents with kids!

    I was looking to buy some film cameras in Bishkek and the best place to go is the Soviet Bazaar on Sunday. Make sure to get there early and say for a few hours. People are friendly and its a great place to find a deal on Soviet stuff. I got a few roles of old film and next time I will buy a soviet camera. It's worth the trip for sure!

    The Soviet Bazaar on Sunday from 7 am to 11 am Orto-Sai Bazaar on the south side of Bishkek

    This small shop in a repurposed building in Dobovy/Oak Park is worth visiting. Naturally, this being Kyrgyzstan, the selection is dominated by excellent locally crafted fabric arts, particularly of felt and applique (wall hangings, clothes, scarves, purses). There are also paintings, a case of jewelry and other small crafts, some dolls and puppets, etc. This is the perfect place you can get crafts by local artists to bring to your friends and family, and avoid mass-produced imported "souvenirs" while supporting the local arts. The 5 star rating is missing a star and reduced to 4 because I had to return 3 times to find it open, so check in advance since posted hours aren't always accurate. When one has limited time in a place as a tourist, this sort of back and forth is not conducive to sales - I was lucky I was able to return that many times.
    The setting in Dubovy Park is very nice too - while walking here you will see beautiful carved stone statues of open air sculpture and walk by the trees and flowers and see the birds.

    Everything you could possibly want cloth wise. Rows and rows of "shops" selling from cushions to corpeys and everything in between.

    Most shops in this two storey building sell clothes (conventional and modern), some other stuff like shoes, bags and sports articles. There is a restaurant on the second floor. Central location, but not very special. Perhaps interesting if you want to get an idea of how locals (used to) dress.
    Closes at 8PM sharp.

    We've came to this mall for the leather boutique Decadence. It's mostly a shopping mall with things for children and kids entrentrainment. The Sierra cafe is a very good place to have an ice cream or a tasty business lunch. You can find here an Ikea boutique wich has a lot of good things.

    Not really a tourist destination but a practical mal in Bishkek that we visited when we needed to pick up some supplies for our journey. They have a working carousel in the mall so of course being kids at heart we went for a ride or three and it was fun. It’s a mall, you either need to be there or you don’t.

    Tataan is a market where you will find many thinks. Furniture, food, banks, construction materials, etc.

    Many people say that all products come from China. That is why the quality of what they sell is not so good.

    I bought blender there, and works 1 times. After that doesn't works any more.
