This is the heart of Istambul, a merchant who has soul, sweetness, candy, nuts, dried fruit, cheeses, fish and everything you can only wish for ... enjoy and price yourself, although you can lower prices when few people than when crowd.

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
