The city offers its visitors a host of exciting possibilities: colourful Central Asian bazaars, thought-provoking museums, art galleries showcasing Kyrgyz talent, vast green parks, quirky curiosities and an array of day trips outside Bishkek itself.
The environs of Bishkek city, i.e., the gorges of the northern slope of the Kyrgyz Ridge are also attractive to mountain tourism. They are Ala-Archa, Alamedin, Kegety, Issyk-Ata, Sokuluk, Ak-Suu, and Shamshy gorges. There are plenty of beautiful waterfalls in the neighborhood of Bishkek. They are Alamedin, Kegety, Belogorsky, and Golubinnyi (Pigeon) waterfalls**

As one of the world's smallest capitals (pop 800,000) the city centre is compact and easily explored on foot. Bishkek's wide boulevards are lined with oak, elm and sycamore trees%.ft**
