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.

Beautiful images of this bazar.

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.

Nice discussion friends. All of above member has large knowledge about tourism. Grand Bazaar is the most populous place for all visitors. This bazaar is the biggest bazaar in the world. Istanbul is the famous city in Turkey. It has many beautiful attractions for visiting. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Emirgan Park is Istanbul Aquarium is the most famous places for visiting.

It was great mosque! I used to visit this mosque with the help of grand canyon tour company last year. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque is a piece of art. This mosque is worth to visit in Turkey. There you have to be quiet and follow the rules. The surroundings are also great.

I agree livon555 it is also one of the famous and attractive place to visit there. I have been there a month ago with best bus tours and really enjoyed my trip. It is popularly known as the Blue Mosque for the blue tiles adorning the walls of its interior. It is also one of the historic mosque in Istanbul.
