Why locals love it?

Istanbul's Grand Bazaar is a great place to shop for gold, silver and souvenirs. If you’re good at bargaining, you can get authentic leather items, carpets, jewellery, scarves and souvenirs at very reasonable prices.

Why you should visit it

Although the Grand Bazaar is notorious for its persistent shopkeepers, it’s still an enjoyable place to explore for its unique atmosphere. Built in the 15th century, the building spans almost 55,000 square metres and houses over 3000 shops and stalls.

Special tip

Beware of pickpockets and bag slashers in the crowds.
