There are lots of bazaars around the city centre and you could possibly find everything from snacks to souvenirs. These bazaars are like a massive maze to me so I literally got lost when I was there, especially in Grand Bazaar. If you know how to make a bargain, you would save a lot of money, but if you don't, just leave, I am sure you will be able to find the best deal somewhere else as most of the shops sell the same things!

What to buy :

  • Carpets and rug

  • Turkish Delight

  • Turkish tea and glasses

  • Blue Evil Eye of Turkey

  • Mosaic lamps

  • Ceramics


People take pictures for a reason. And I take picture because I love to keep my memories and make the moments frozen. Remember, try to spot something from an unusual perspectives and you could probably get some amazing shots!

What to capture :

  • Sunrises and sunsets

  • Views from the top

  • Food and drink

  • Selfies
