Jainagul Time to discover!
Alvina Let’s travel!
Yuliya Silk Road Tours!
My name is Cholpon. I grew up in a small town of Naryn in the south-eastern part of Kyrgyzstan. From the early ages my passion was to travel and discover new places. I enjoyed showing around to my friends and teachers who came from abroad to teach English. Further I entered the University to study linguistics but to connect my life with tourism it was not enough. Therefore I went through special courses of guiding by local mentors in Bishkek who run tourist agencies. This is how I got involved into this world of adventures and new experiences.
Oh, all along the tour along the countries of Central Asia you have found yourself in Kyrgyzstan? So, we have a good sort of places to visit here! In this article shopping malls of Bishkek are described, so for all in a tour to be able to find the one where to spend free time, or the one where to buy various essential goods of any kind.
Today shopping malls play a great and mostly significant role in the life of any modern citizen and new-comer of Kyrgyzstan. Just starting to travel in the capital of the country the guests want to see the malls, to see the difference of the ones with their own country. And being in Bishkek there are a lot of malls-to-visit. Everything depends on the location of the boarder, as the buildings of malls are located in different points of the city.
Let’s start our excursion. In case the guests are at the central square, they are easier to get to TSUM, GUM, Dordoi Plaza on foot, along with witnessing the views of the city. GUM (Chui avenue, 92) and TSUM (Chui avenue, 155) are located both looking at each other. The first one is interesting with the variety of shops of brand and usual clothes to be bought, some points of marketing of technological equipment. At the same time on the first floor there is a shop of goods and products. TSUM is known to be renewed, and TSUM 2 is already available for visiting. As a guest of the country, during the tour, there is always a desire to take souvenirs and in this case we can offer to visit “Epos” – the world of unique souvenirs of different styles, the goods of premium class of handmade creation, “Saima souvenirs” – the shop of the goods of felt, of the ancient handmade lines and ornaments, and “7 sisters” – the place originated by 7 sisters-handmade masters, creating accessories and clothes in TSUM. Moving on, Dordoi Plaza is located at Ibraimova street, 115A, and here there is a variety of boutiques, with the food store on the semi-basement floor and cinema at the upper floor.
In order to get to other malls from the center it is required to take a car, so Asia Mall is located at Ch.Aitmatov avenue, 3. An interesting notice is seen in the style of the mall – completely in the ethnic style, with lines and ornaments. Here the guests can buy food in “Frunze Gourmet”, watch movies at the “Broadway”, buy clothes in “Defacto”, “LC Waikiki” and etc., have a view of products of technology at “Technodom”, eat burgers in “Black Star Burger”, “KFC”.
The next destination is TUMAR art salon (Isanova st., 80), located near Bishkek Park (Kievskaya st., 148). The Tumar opens the world of felt goods, created on the special order, and just as souvenirs for the guests. As they claim, in the very beginning there were 3 women, but today there are about 200 craftsmen. They tend to make minimal effect on earth, so fool is a natural product, which is renewable and doesn’t make any hurt to environment. Bishkek Park is the mall of boutiques. Really almost 2 floors are covered with the shops, where clients buy clothes of any kind, then, the upper floor is the one where it is possible to have a meal after a long day, for minimum prices, and in restaurant of high food. The highest floor is created for kids, so that there is a great variety of game machines, different spinning rides and of course cinema.
