Bazaar means the market, and Turkish is the "covered market." The Grand Bazaar has been the city centre of Istanbul for centuries. The Grand Bazaar is very close to Istanbul University and the Blue Mosque, and its entrance is so ordinary that it is easy for visitors to miss it. The large-scale Grand Bazaar adopts a fully enclosed design that receives visitors from all over the world every day. People have installed a set of lockable doors and fences for the market, so that after a day of trading, the market can be safely closed.

A must visit place in Istanbul! Such a lovely place with so many unique and traditional Turkish stuff. The Grand Bazaar is quite massive and there are so many entrance available to get in, so find one which is the most convenient to you. Inside, you will see how old the building is since it was built more than 300 years ago, which makes it really pretty and historical. There are around 4000 shops inside, so you can imagine walking around this place might take hours, especially if you love shopping 😝 Many tourists visit this place before they go home to buy some antique souvenirs like bowls, lanterns, chess board, or even keychains and also the delicious turkish delight! One tip from me is, don’t forget to haggle as they always give tourist price 😄
The Grand Bazaar extends in all directions. We entered from the No. 5 Gate and ordered a barbecue inside. Although it looks like a civilian, the 30 is still a bit expensive, but it is not very delicious. Then my stomach hurts, and I don't know if it is not so familiar.
The most famous market in the Mediterranean is the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey (GRAND BAZAAR, original meaning: the market with a canopy). Originated from the conqueror's Mohammed period, a small stone goods trading area with railings, and then there are constantly merchants to join, and built roofs and corridors for their shops, so that people can be here regardless of the weather. In the covered shops, the trade was comfortable, not afraid of the wind and rain.
Take the tram T1 to the Grand bazaar station and get off the bus to see the Grand Bazaar. Lively, people are the first impression it left for me. There are tourists from all over the world. Its good for them to buy gifts.
The world's big bazaar is the same, it is equivalent to the wholesale market, there are all kinds of strange food, jewelry, clothing, etc., you can find a lot of things.
But I don't know how to buy things. If you don't understand, you can see it. It is said that the water is very deep. People who know how to do it can find a lot of good goods. Buying a little gadget is a good commemoration. Remember to buy goods. Oh than bargaining, dont regret it.
The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is known as The Grand Bazaar in English and is considered to be one of the world's oldest shopping malls. It is also the world's largest and oldest Bazaar market, covering 65 streets, 26 exits, and more than 4,400 shops. Along with mosques, cafes, schools, hospitals and hammams, it is like a huge Aladdin treasure, where you can buy lots of interesting things and Turkish specialties.
Every area in the Grand Bazaar is very complicated, like a huge labyrinth. If you don't pay attention, you will faint and turn around to the origin. Even my loggers follow the navigation.
Turkey's biggest featured product is blue eyes. No matter which city, blue eyes will appear. They have already penetrated into the life and architecture of local people. People put blue eyes on the floor and the wall. It is made into ornaments and hangs as a decoration to attract customers, and it is a unique symbol of Turkey.
Walk in the Grand Bazaar, always fascinated by the colorful lamps, the boss looks at my appearance, the generous permission to take pictures, the Turks' hearty warmth.
