A lot of people seem to love this place. We didn't like at all. There is nothing authentic about this place. I have been there years ago when you could still buy wonderful handicraft pieces. Nowadays most of the goods are ‘made in China’. And...More

Each time we travel to Istanbul we make a point to visit the Grand Bazaar and allow ourselves to get lost inside. Each passageway is filled with wonderful suprises. You have passageways filled with gold, carpets, antiques, jewelery, leather items and much much more.

The place is amazing to wonder and walk around but a very bad idea to buy anything in there where it's too damn expensive. The prices are 10 times higher than outside.

Nice to walk around and visit. However for shopping, it is too expensive compared to the side streets just outside. Also very busy at certain times and days so check online before you visit. Its a good place to buy all things in one place...More

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
