Why You Should Visit Osh?
Travelers’ hub since bronze age
Osh is an incredibly interesting city with its ancient history, diverse culture, delectable cuisine and geographic location. Therefore, thousands of foreigners visit Osh each year.
Mostly, the travelers are attracted to Osh’s ancientness and the legacy of the Great Silk Road. It also serves as the best transit point to Pamir Highway and China’s Kashgar. Osh borders with Uzbekistan what makes it a great spot to continue the journey to the historical cities of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva.
And finally, Osh is the most important administrative center of the south of Kyrgyzstan what makes it the place of expats’ deployment and business trips.
So which group do you belong to?
Well, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you can make your time more memorable in Osh by exploring it as a unique travel destination. Dive into a blend of diverse cultures, taste one of the best cuisines of Central Asia and participate in the local lifestyle. All of this can be experienced on your own.

About "Best of Osh"
Hey! My name is Atabek. I’m an Osh native and am so obsessed with my hometown that I decided to start “Best of Osh” as a way to show people its most incredible features.
My background is in political science (and if it’s important, you should know that I’m a neo-classical realist, constructivist, and liberal all in one), but I left the dark realm of politics behind to work in tourism several years ago. As I see it, tourism is one of the most effective forms of Joseph Nye’s soft power — it generates more benefits of friendship, dialogue, and prosperity than most government-sponsored programs.
Building up Kyrgyzstan’s soft power has served as the primary motivation for my tours and this company. My goal is to introduce my country, people, culture and daily life to you in the most entertaining, experiential and delicious ways (and it’s also a great excuse to eat my favorite foods and visit my favorite spots).
