Jalal-Abad (the City of Jalal, after a 13th century warrior) may be Kyrgyzstan’s third-largest city but you wouldn’t know it from its laid-back, easy-going feel. In its Soviet heyday the town boasted an upmarket health resort, still alive today but none-too-healthy. Most everything of use to travellers can be found on Lenina between the bazaar in the northwest and Hotel Mölmöl (a 10-minute walk) in the southeast.
