The sprawling bazaar in Osh

Dardoy Market -Дордой Базары
Dardoy Market -Дордой Базары

One of the largest markets in Asia, with dozens of aisles full of endless rows of shipping containers. Each one opens up to be a nice little shop. Kyrgyzstan is a small country, but it's a crucial commercial link between China and Central Asia. China is repaving many of the highways in Kyrgyzstan to get their goods out faster.

 Coal mining continues in the southern town of Suluktu today, but it's mostly re-opening abandoned Soviet mines and sells the coal on a "cash and carry" basis. Once a major producer of coal for the Soviet Union, Suluktu's economy fully collapsed when the newly formed states of Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan erected national borders that interrupted the economy of the Fergana Valley.
