Osh Bazaar is one of two large bazaars in Bishkek. Bazaars in Central Asia are a cultural experience, and I don't recommend leaving the country without visiting one. Osh Bazaar is the closest to the city center and has a convenient location near the bus station and along popular public transit routes. You can buy almost anything you could want here, but tourists tend to particularly enjoy the selection of spices and other foods, and of course, there is a large section of national souvenirs. You can also find postcards.
It's just amazing))). There you can find anything you want. Probably the most interesting place in Bishkek))).
