More About the Author

Laurence Mitchell was born in the English West Midlands but has spent most of his adult life based in Norwich, Norfolk. Formerly a geography teacher he first turned his hand to travel writing almost a decade ago. As well as the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk at his doorstep he is also drawn to overseas destinations that lie well off the beaten track - those places that Colin Thubron describes as the 'nerve-ends of the world': transition zones and cultural frontiers like Central Asia, the Balkans and the Caucasus region.

For all my beaten off the track travels, I always purchase the Bradt guidebooks. I find them very well researched, give an added insight on culture and many other little anecdotes with makes the read even more enjoyable.
This one on Kyrgyzstan was absolutely no exception.
One possible suggestion would be to include more detailed information of travelling from one place to another as this is often very swift information in the book. Another idea is to update the pictures, many date back to mid-90s...

Format: Paperback
Whilst I normally rely on the LP books to aid my travels, Kyrgyzstan can only be found lumped with the other 'Stans, so instead I turned to the Bradt Guides. And was very pleased indeed that I did! I thought Mr. Mitchell included a fantastic knowledge of the history and culture of the various Kyrgyz tribes, which was very useful to bear in mind. I also liked his suggestion of things to do. Kyrgyzstan does present a bit of a problem in terms of transport and tourism infrastructure (not to mention political complications), but the Bradt guide managed to pick out a whole range of things to keep any sort of traveller interested. I like how it is written as well, very clear and concise. Would definitely recommend Mr. Mitchell's guide as an accompaniment to anyone setting out to the roof of the world!

Format: Paperback
Length: 1:29 Mins
I recently embarked upon a mountaineering expedition to Kyrgyzstan. Organizing and arranging vital transport and logistics for four weeks in the mountains is by no means an easy feat, but through the help of this guide our team was able to locate all the right people, find the cheapest bazaars to purchase supplies and perhaps most importantly, the best place to go for a meal and a drink after a hard day's trekking through Bishkek!

Clearly presented, easy to read and packed full of informative hints and tips, Bradt's Kyrgyzstan travel guide is an essential companion to those wishing to explore this still largely unheard of, but incredibly beautiful country. It has to mentioned that due to the recent events in the country, the guide's political section has quickly gone out of date. However, I found that this negligibly effected the rest of the book's content, with the sightseeing and traveller information all correct at the time of my own visit in July 2010.

Through the book's help we quickly organised ourselves and within a week were able to enjoy stunning mountain scenery, the likes of which are illustrated in this video.

Format: Paperback
This is the only specific country guide available for Kyrgyzstan. It provides useful information presented in an interesting and very 'readable' format. This book brings together everything you need to know to plan a trip to Kyrgyzstan, so if you want to be able to rely on one source of information only this book is highly recommended.

It does all you could want from a travel guide; I was mostly travelling with a tour group, so wasn't able to confirm much of the information on inter-city travel, but the small amount of local travel I did worked as the book suggested. Interesting description of the history and culture of a country which should be much more visited.
