Traveling with Children in Kyrgyzstan 
Kyrgyzstan
If you are lucky enough to get to Tumar in Bishkek you will find marvelous native based, modern items of women's and children's clothing, rugs and art pieces. Much of which is done in handmade felts and silks. It is a wonderful, upmarket store with reasonable prices. A really fun time.

Bishkek, Bishkek Region & Surrounds, Kyrgyzstan
Question is how did you end up in Bishkek. Hope you speak Russian or Kyrgyz cuz English doesn't get ya too far here. Check out Tzum a big shopping center. Also Osh Bazar. My favorite place to eat there is Pecking Duck.

Naryn, Central Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyzstan
If you end up finding yourself in Naryn City rhe first thing you should do is search out Peace Corps Volunteers. They are there and they want company. People will know how to find them... however people don't speak very good english there so try to find the American Center at Naryn University.  That's where the English speakers dwell. there are some nice hiking routes and always cheap boozes. Be careful at night it can be a kind of dangerous town, especially if you are male, drunk, and alone.

Altynarasan, Kyrgyzstan
Altynarasan is an excellent place for a rest after days of mountaineering with its hot water springs. Be warned not to stay too long in the strong and hot water or you may feel sick after a quarter of an hour. Down the valley there is a hot spring up on a cliff wall and there is an artificial bowl just big enough for two person under the spring. It's great to take a bath there in the open and the view with the stream and the pine trees ispicturesque. Altynarasan can be accessed from Karakol by jeep in good weather on horseback or by foot. The best is to pack your tent, hire a guide in Karakol and visit all the beautiful valleys South of Karakol. Good quality fresh food can be bought at Karakol market. Also keep in mind that you basically cannot buy trekking equippment in Karakol. If you need gas canisters you should get it in advance in Bishkek.

Balykchy, Eastern Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyzstan
The most amazing mountains I've ever seen with a most breathtaking view!! The mountain region of the Tian Shan covers over 80% of the country, that's why Kyrgyzstan is somestimes reffered to as "the Switzerland of Central Asia" )) But I'd say it's more unspoiled, natural and unconventional. And lake Issyk-Kul', which is the second largest mountain lake in the world, has got such crystal clear water that you can basically see your feet while swimming. )) And people... They're so hospitable and friendly that you wouldn't want to come back home )) And did I mention food yet? ) It's absolutely delicious!!
