You cannot go to Istanbul and not visit the spice market! The colours and smells alone make it worth a visit. The downside is that the stall owners don't let you browse peacefully and as soon as you stop to look at something, they pounce on you.

All your senses are engaged when you step in the Egyptian Bazaar (the actual name of the Spice Bazaar!). The smells of the herbs and sweets and soaps. The colours of the goods in display. The noise of the harassing and bargaining. Feeling the textiles with your fingers. Great experience

If you love food and love to cook, this is the place for you. The smells are amazing, and every spice you can imagine. Definitely buy some saffron, but not at the first place you get to. Shop around and you’ll get a great price. Beware the prepackaged packs of spices for tourists. They are usually packs of old spices 5hat have lost their potency.
