I was impressed by the myriad and diversity of products. Look around, bargain, buy yourself a dessert and the loved ones back home some souvenirs.

The Egyptian Bazaar also known as the Grand Bazaar is the busiest place I have ever visited when it comes to people traffic! The shopping is great and there is certainly something you can find for everyone.

Really interesting part of Istanbul, much nicer than the Grand bazaar although much smaller as well. This place is actually frequented by locals especially in the evening so be sure to go earlier in the day or you'll be walking through a sea of people! Very interesting, most stalls sell the same things but prices vary slightly so shop around. If you do end up walking in and they end up pushing turkish delights for you to try, politely refuse or you may feel inclined to buy.. Otherwise, a great experience.

What amazing smells and colours ! Best place to go for fresh spices and teas. Fantastic selection of.Nuts, baklava , Turkish delight, sponges etc. I took some amazing photos. Watch out for preyer times. It is quiet when they are off preying but really heaving and oppressive at times when they all come out of the mosque.

Feel free! this bazaar makes you feel free. If you are a tourist and know Turkish talk Turkish. they trick the ones who talk English. Make sure your bag is there. Only problem there is this! Shops, road or price: No Problem! But, don't be a fool and look everywhere! Spices are awsome and decorations are superb! I love that place. I lost my bag:D Still I love there.
