You can exchange money in the banks or at street exchange offices in Kyrgyzstan. It is easy to exchange US Dollar and Euros in Kyrgyzstan.
Credit/Debit Cards and ATMs
You may use credit cards in the hotels and also to get cash in bank from the counter.
It is better to use US Dollars instead of cheques because only some banks accept traveller's cheques in Bishkek and the commission charges are high there. Cash is more better in Kyrgyzstan.
