Bishkek, the capital city of Kyrgyzstan, is actually just a 5-hour drive from Almaty, Kazakhstan. But since I was entering the country through visa-on-arrival, I flew in to Bishkek airport (from Almaty) where my visa can only be processed. And just like Almaty, the Kyrgyz capital still has retained its former Soviet Asian flavor.
I visited Kyrgyzstan in October 2019 and managed to get my Kyrgyzstan visa on arrival with no issues at Manas International Airport (in Bishkek). The beautiful and hospitable Central Asian country has been growing in popularity for tourists, and the government has made the visa on arrival so simple so more people can visit the country.
