Very famous place, probably the first thing I've ever heard about Istanbul. My parents were there a number of years ago and have great memories, my aunt also went a few times and liked it. We found it quite poor. The overwhelming majority of stuff is poorly made fakes and in the little shops where they sell, say, fur, prices are cosmic. No particularly friendly service as opposed to my parents' recollection who were served tea and chatted up for hours just like that, no obligation. People nowadays are much more openly money-oriented and especially young vendors have completely lost the old habit of courting their customer. We actually only had that in a luxurious carpet shop completely outside the bazaar.Not that they have to, but that's after all what they are famous for!
