The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world, with 61 covered streets and over 3,000 shops which attract between 250,000 and 400,000 visitors daily. It’s a most interest of this market. A trip to Istanbul is not complete without a visit to the Grand Bazaar. I visit in this market by bus during my Istanbul travel. There are thousands of things you can find and purchase in the Grand Bazaar. The gate that one usually enters into the bazaar is called "Nuruosmaniye Gate" that means "the light of the Ottomans". It’s a really beautiful place for shopping and excitement. All good branded things are available in this market. I like most Turkish Ceramics , and Carpets and Textiles.. I bought many things for me and my family. If you want to get more info about this, please Click here.

I spend 5 years of life in tourism but in this long time I don't have any experience of Istanbul bazaar yet. After reading your post I really wish to visit this bazaar soon. Well now I am confused for my net tour that I get from nyc ny to niagara falls bus tour. I really need to know the most important points of this tour and especially for kids because my family wish to come with me on this tour.
Grand Bazaar was built in the 15th century and the oldest covered market in the world. Covering an area of 54.653 square meters, it also still ranks as one of the world’s biggest covered markets. In other words, keep on reading if you want to be prepared before entering this maze of 56 interconnecting vaulted passages, housing over 4.000 shops with persistent shopkeepers eager to use their relentless sales tricks.
