When I went to Bishkek I did a day trip to Kol Tor lake (it was a 14km hike there and back so not for the faint hearted) and Belogorka - the waterfall is only a 20 minute walk from the car park so this is probably and easier one to do. The landscapes were stunning in both cases.

If you donít have long Iíd just stick with going around Bishkek - itís a very Soviet city with lots of parks and grey buildings which I found quite interesting.

The one thing not to miss in Tashkent is the metro - itís simply stunning!
Solid, thx for the restaurant recommendation. I for sure won't miss the metro stations in Tashkent, that's right up my alley.
