During my short stay in Kazakhstan, I had a chance to go to Kyrgyzstan for a visa run. I was there for almost a week and before I headed back to Almaty, I took my time exploring the largest flea market in the country- Dordoy Bazaar. It is situated just outside Bishkek. I can compare this with Bangkok’s Chatuchak’s market although Dordoy is much much bigger. You will see thousands of shipping containers transformed into shops selling different products.
Just as you do your shopping in Vietnam’s Ben Thanh Market, you can haggle here. There is no fixed price and the more you buy, the more discount they’ll give. I had great fun harnessing my skills here.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Do you know what I did after shopping? Read here:
