TripBazaar 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.

Turkey has long been a global crossroads. Straddling Europe and Asia, its lands have seen the rise and fall of vast empires including the Greek, Persian, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman. This long history combines with pristine natural beauty. Black Sea resorts dot Turkey’s northern coast. Grand cathedrals and mosques line the Bosporus Straits in Istanbul. Picturesque islands are scattered in the Aegean Sea. And ancient ruins coexist with modern luxury along the Mediterranean coast. It is a land for travelers seeking something exotic yet familiar. In this and so many other ways, Turkey is the ideal blend.

Istanbul Travel Tips

About Istanbul

As a city that cradles both Asian and European cultures, Istanbul has innumerable stories to count. Sitting at the throat of the Bosphorus Strait, this city is at the confluence of eastern and western culture. Previously, three ancient empires—the Romans, Byzantines, and Ottomans—made this their capital city, previously known as Constantinople and Byzantium. An abundance of ancient relics and structures each culture left behind have been preserved. In the old Sultanahmet District you can see magnificent Blue Mosque and, in the same visit, go to the nearby Hagia Sophia—a Greek Orthodox church that became a mosque and is now a museum)—and the Ottoman-era Topkapı Palace. The century-old Grand Bazaar is a spectacle not to be missed. The goods inside are dazzling to behold and it is a good place to buy souvenirs.
