Established in the 1450s this is one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world. A true example of human hardiness, the bazaar has survived numerous fires, earthquakes and wars and continues to thrive today. Highly crowded, everyone here is looking for the best deal; bargaining is a way of life. Start with a fourth of the asking price and you might end up paying only half of it. It’s a noisy and warm sensory overload, bustling with energy. As for what can you actually buy here? Almost everything! Cafés and diners are scattered liberally over the place.

  • If you know right shops,Grandbazaar is the best shopping place.

  • The roofed market is one of the attractions of Istanbul that you can not avoid, especially if you are in a tourist group. Always crowded, items are overpriced and most of them are made in China. Some decades ago it would be a very interesting market with eastern goods, but not anymore. Colorful, vivid and noisy, if you have time to spend, pay a visit._
