Visited early in the morning and the place was very vibrant already. Even though lots of shops are similar it doesn't get boring. However, it is easy to get lost along the different streets with hundreds of shops. Not opened on Sunday!
The maze of streets and shops which constitute Kapali Carsi (Grand Bazaar) are well worth a visit, even if, like me, you are not intending buying anything. You WILL get lost and lose all sense of direction, but that is part of the magic.
It’s so easy to get lost in this magical maze. Everything you could imagine needing or wanting is here. From replica designers to leather and fur to carpets and jewellery and even restaurants.

Lots of the winding streets off the Grand Bazaar offer better deals for tourists, but the atomesphere in there is great. In the "new town" area, such as Istikal Street, you'll find lots of high street shops, but also some great little bars, restaurants & art galleries. If you follow this street north, it takes you to Taksim Square, another great sight seeing opportunity. If you take the road south though, you'll get to Galata Tower (fab view of the city from the top) and lots of different shops along the way.
