The Grand Bazaar, also known as Kapali Carsi is a shoppers paradise as it is one of the largest and the oldest covered markets in the world. The market accommodates nearly 4000 shops and visitors can shop for numerous products that includes leather wares, carpets, ceramics, jewelry, clothing, artifacts and much more. The market may seem to be chaotic, but it definitely overwhelms its visitors. The market accommodates numerous restaurants, cafés and few mosques that showcase the cultural life of Istanbul.
The visitors had to be very much careful while shopping as the sellers or vendors mark high prices for their products and prices can only come down after some serious haggling with them. The products also need to be examined completely before their purchase as the products sold here are not of excellent quality. Another concern of this market is the pickpockets, so visitors are suggested to take care of their bags or wallets. In spite of all the flaws, this market continues to be one of the most visited markets around the world.
