When I travel, I really like to visit bazaars in different countries and cities. I really liked the market in Mumbai, India, in Melbourne-Victoria’s cranium, Australia. I heard a lot about the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul and this time I was lucky enough to take a walk on it. It was very exciting!
The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world, with 61 covered streets and over 4,000 shops which attract between 250,000 and 400,000 visitors daily. In 2014, it was listed No.1 among world’s most-visited tourist attractions with 91,250,000 annual visitors.
The Grand Bazar at Istanbul is often regarded as one of the first shopping malls of the world.
