Summary: The pros of living in Kyrgyzstan include its stunning natural beauty, with majestic mountains, lush valleys, and crystal-clear lakes. The country also has a rich cultural heritage, with a variety of ethnic groups and languages. Kyrgyzstan is also relatively affordable, with low cost of living and a wide range of housing options. The cons of living in Kyrgyzstan include its lack of economic development, with a weak infrastructure and limited job opportunities. The country also has a high crime rate, with a high level of corruption and a lack of security. Additionally, Kyrgyzstan has a harsh climate, with cold winters and hot summers.

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Kyrgyzstan responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Kyrgyzstan appreciate the low cost of living, the friendly locals, and the stunning natural beauty of the country. They also enjoy the vibrant culture, the delicious food, and the abundance of outdoor activities. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads find the language barrier and lack of infrastructure to be challenging. Additionally, the political situation in the country can be unstable at times, which can be a source of concern," explained one expat living in Kyrgyzstan.
