Massive shopping place so many different avenues you could get lost but is perfect for buying gifts! From Michael Kors handbags to Rolex Watches, these shops are amazing and so cheap! The guys are willing to bring the price down and haggle with you but be prepared to spend lots of money as you just want to buy everything! Highly... More

Definitely worth a visit if staying in the vicinity. It is not as good as the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul but still worthwhile. There are a maze of shops and you can easily get lost whilst doing your shopping. This is where you can find all the fakes .... Shoes, handbags, watches, t shirts etc, be aware that there are...

We visited this bazaar recently. There are many shops and it is easy to get lost! The shopping is great and if you are looking fot a good fake, this is the place to go! Shop keepers are a bit pushy but you get used to it. You can get a bargain is you haggle hard enough. I would go... More

Istanbul is busy, no question, and if you don't like crowds you will be challenged, but once you have the right attitude the whole city, in fact the whole country, and in particular the Grand Bazaar becomes a fantastic, fun, funny experience. Our tip - go early and go with a smile. Our hotel was a short walk to the... More

nice to see the actual bazzar, the shop keepers can be a bit pushy, tended to buy of those that said no hassle. Glad had the misses with me as she is a much better haggler than me and we did manage to get a few bargins on the "Genuine fakes"

We went in the morning hours and the bazzar was crowded. Most of the shops were negotiable by at least 25%. Remember your route, else you will get lost. Turkish handicrafts are special attractions.

All the shops which are on the main road near the hotels are exactly the same in the grand bazaar. So it's not really worth going there. Also there isn't much to buy as all the fake clothes, bags, superdry, hollister they look really fake and cheep so it's not worth buying.

Absolutely love wondering round the grandbizzar. Yes you get asked to go in and look ....but they're trying to make a living!. If you're interested go and look if not...say no thanks... be polite that's all.

I have never been anywhere to 'haggle' so it was a first for me! I found it a little overwhelming with all the creepy men looking at you and calling out things and laughing at time but besides that it was good fun. I probably wouldn't go to Marmaris again but it was a great experience!
