In Bishkek, Osh and Alamedin bazaars are popular for food and handicrafts. There are several souvenir crafts shops and galleries along Chui and Manas Avenue and also a shop in the Art Gallery that sells paintings and traditional Kyrgyz products. One of the most authentic souvenirs to bring back from Kyrgyzstan is an embroidered shyrdak, the traditional Kyrgyz felt rug used in yurts. Also popular are embroidered Kyrgyz felt hats (kalpak), leather items, jewellery and chess sets with traditional Kyrgyz figures. Traditional handicrafts produced by Kyrgyzstan’s Community Based Tourism initiative (www.cbtkyrgyzstan.kg) can be purchased at their Bishkek outlet at Gorky 65. TsUM, Bishkek’s main department store, also has a decent selection of local crafts and souvenirs on its fourth floor. Antiques, or anything over 30 years old, require a special export certificate.
