Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

Good for all, especially for families with kids up to age 13 or so, best to have a love for the outdoors and pretty parks. - Sep 21, 2017
It's good for everyone. There is a lot to do for kids. Indoor playgrounds and bouncy houses everywhere. I've known a lot of single women here who all seem to be happy here. - Jan 16, 2015
We didn't know very many expats but we certainly were happy as a family in Bishkek. - May 13, 2014
Very few people complain about life in Bishkek. Morale is high. Single men seem not to remain single long in Bishkek. - Dec 17, 2011
