This was our second trip with Remote Lands... On Java, our guide was excellent and we loved being the only people at Borobudur after the monument closed to the public.

Kyrgyzstan - Bishkek

Welcome to Bishkek, the largest city and capital of Kyrgyzstan, a landlocked country in Central Asia bordering Kazakhstan to the north, Uzbekistan to the west, Tajikistan to the southwest and China to the southeast. The city - once a stop along the ancient Silk Road - sits at the foot of the Tien Shan mountain range, in the Chui Valley, and despite being a relatively new city founded in the 1800s, it is a popular tourist destination on a trip through the mountains or continuing on through Asia.

For visitors making a stop in Bishkek, there are several Soviet-era monuments to see on a walk through town, and the city's nightlife will provide much entertainment after dark. The city's main draw, however, is a comfortable stop on a trek throughout Asia, and one of the best places to pick up tourist visas for surrounding countries. While here, visitors can enjoy a couple of days' worth of sightseeing and activities.
