    Huge bazaar with various items from shoes, bags, scarfs, t-shirts, gold rings & bracelets. I noticed some stalls haggle you to shop from them while others let you browse until being approached.👍👎

    There are more than a thousand shops in almost 60 streets in this market. It is laid on about 31,000 square meters. You will definitely find the most beautiful gifts here before leaving.

    A must visit place. There are thousands stores inside the 'dome' but the real eastern bazaar starts outside of it. Lots of streets packed w/ shops where u can find anything u want. Beware of thieves.

    I absolute love herbal teas offered here! Priced cheaper than taksim square and rest of sultan Ahmet. So definitely check that out. Note: Its closed on Sundays. Worthy alternate:Egyptian bazaar

    A very special atmosphere which reminds of Bourne films) Everyone is nice and helpful. But I wouldn't suggest buying baklava here as it's next to spices and it affects the flavour.

    Like kids in a toy shop. There's so much to buy, but make sure you keep on bargaining. Start at 30% of what is said. Great for lamps, water pipes, souvenirs and pretty much everything!

    The biggest closed market in the world! It's packed full of everything under the sun. The traders can be a bit pushy but just make sure you barter hard with them. Great for watches, handbags & spices

    If you like historical place and local coffees and hand made things I suggest it for you. Also, the prices is flexible you can take by half of price but that depending on your cleverness 😀

    The prices here are much higher than stalls operating outside the Grand Bazaar. You need to negotiate for 40% from offered price. Great visiting with lots of choices. Leather goods are in abundance

    Visit just to tick the box. It's stuffed with smoke. No pictures allowed. Prices can vary multiple times and I would still be concerned with the quality. For fair prices look for off tourist track

    If you are looking for a certain thing, ask different shops for prices. It may vary much more than you can imagine. And also shops outside of bazaar are cheaper in general.

    Big market. You must have pacience to find good stuff with good price. The Spice Bazaar is smaller and you find almost the same things with better price.
