Hi, Dear Asad, Are you still there. What are the 1 bed apartment monthly rents in center.If you are living for last 3 years , there was a person by the name of Javed shah and an other abdul sattar...are they still living in bishkek. thank you very much
#Romeo on Sep 21, 2015 :
#Asad, You don't believe in what shi#? I also was there and I agree with this Statistics. It's not expensive city.
#mehmet on Jun 23, 2015 :
Everything is more expensive then istanbul, every item is imported, a modern business centre office rent is 25usd per sqrmtr. If you live like locals you can live cheaper but if you need istanbul standards you pay at least two times more. There is no quality life standard and service. Standard life means luxury in Bishkek
#Asad on Nov 10, 2014 :
and the biggest bluff taxi start called 'posadka' in russian starts from 87soms ... its 34 soms and the highest ever I saw in a taxi was near 50 soms and per km they charge 8 or 10 or maybe 12 soms
#Asad on Nov 10, 2014 :
I meant actually they are less than those stated above...e.g. marlboro its 45soms not 53 something...everything is like this... Autobus or trolleys charge 8 soms not 12..
#Asad on Nov 10, 2014 :
