Shopping Areas in

years, famed as the trading point connecting the Silk Road
from China with Europe. Here are major shopping spots of
The Grand bazaar (Locally known as Kapali Carsi-Covered
Bazaar) is a labyrinth of hundreds of streets accommodating
thousands of shops near the old city. Main entrance of the
bazaar is from Beyazit district. Grand Bazaar could mainly
be recommended for tourist shopping or buying souvenirs.

Sultanahmet is the town at the heart of the old city housing
the most famous tourist attraction of Istanbul. The town is
also famous with many carpet shops exhibiting the best
selections of hand made Turkish carpets, rugs and kilims.
Traditional Turkish carpets are most famous in the world
with their designs reflecting the pure and innocent feelings
of the eastern people. Some of these carpets are
masterpieces of art competing with the paintings of
Renaissance painters. One thing you should pay attention if
you buy carpets is that, the shops can overcharge
independent travelers, and some people (such as hotel
receptions) helping you takes high commissions if they take
you to some shops. We recommend
classic private tours organized by Pride
Travel exclusively for gay people to avoid being overcharged
during any kind of shopping.
