The Grand Baazar in Istanbul, is one of the most magical, colourful and delightful bazaars I have been too. Bustling with tourists, locals and traders, it is bursting with hookah smoking pipes, glass tea sets, and outstanding Persian rugs.
As a tourist you will be a target for the traders who will raise their prices ridiculously high, but even so, welcome you with Turkish hospitality with a glass of Apple Tea which you can sip while mulling over your next purchase.
This Bazaar is a modern souk but is filled with shadows of Ottoman glory, and is an experience not to be missed.
