If you're looking for a place where the locals go, this is it. It's cheap, there are many food & drink options and it is historical. In the summer, they have little misters blowing out cool water. In the winter, they bring out little portable heaters so you can really sit out there year round.

In our tour to Bursa was included a short visit to the Silk Bazaar. There are many nice things to buy, including souvenirs and silk, and the prices are lower than those in Istanbul. It was an enjoyable afternoon...

I have to admit I had higher hopes for this area of the city. It is situated right behind the Ulu Camii and in the middle of an outdoor shopping market. The silks were interesting and there is definitely plenty to choose from if you are shopping with the qualities ranging in large degrees.

First you should walk around the shops in the second floor and enjoy the touch of beautiful fabrics. Then you should have a cup of turkish coffee downstairs in the yard. This place gives me peace no matter how crowded it is. The only down side is the difficulty of choosing between tons of amazing silk shawls.

It is a well known stop that resides in if not all itineraries. It's a place that resisted to stand for more than 500 years. Name comes from the cocoon of silkworm. It means "silkworm cocoon inn". Because it had been and is still a center for the silk merchandise.

A must see for any Bursa visitor. It has a great atmosphere. Good cafés. If you want to buy silk or cashmere scarfs from Bursa, Koza Han is the best address.

I think this is the most beautiful area of the bazar which is full of good restaurants and cafes. You will enjoy having a meal of Iskendar Kebab there.

Experience a walk through the traditional markets in Bursa. This opportunity allows you to bargain, feast and enjoy a spectacle of unique affordable purchases. A must see for any Bursa visitor. Best part is, it is full of locals who frequently shop here. This is not some overblown tourist attraction.

There's something about entering Koza Hani that instantly lowers my blood pressure. The two times I've visited it's been bustling but hasn't seemed over crowded. The green courtyard with big plane trees is just lovely and it's wonderful to walk the perimeter to see all of the beautiful silk scarves. Definitely worth a visit.

I have been visiting this place since 1990!It has developed and changed a lot but has never lost its authenticity and historical touch. You can find best quality scarves and decoration items in this place and you can always enjoy a cup of tea in the tea garden located in the middle of the Han. It was one of the... More
