Re: Kyrgyzstan new registration rule

Hi everyone. As far as I could know, from a local source (not 100% sure though), the measure is quite likely to be at worst changed (maybe to registration in the first month) and at best straight eliminated. However, we will only get to know if it effectively changes so for the moment no news.

The sports were also very interesting and the free entrance made it posible to enjoy many of the events and to see more people. On the other hand organization was not the best... the schedules...

Re: Recommendations for 2 week trip

Hi Steven! Thanks for your answer. I totally share your point, the problem is that that you mention, lack of time... otherwise I wouldn't mind to spend 2 weeks in each country but unluckily I leave at the end of the year and it's my only chance. 2.

Re: Recommendations for 2 week trip

Thanks a lot for the reply! I will check the plan you suggest, it also looks good. The more I can avoid the cars, the better, but in Central Asia that's not easy.
