How to get there : Take metro to Panzdah Khordad Station

If you want to save money for foods, I would recommend a nice restaurant in Sayyed Vali Street. The chicken rice was delicious, cheap and big portion.

 

 

Grand Bazaar, Istanbul, Turkey

“The Grand Bazaar (Kapalıçarşı) in Istanbul is one of the largest covered markets in the world with 60 streets and 5,000 shops, and attracts between 250,000 and 400,000 visitors daily.

… A leisurely afternoon spent exploring the bazaar, sitting in one of the cafés and watching the crowds pass by, and bargaining for purchases is one of the best ways to recapture the romantic atmosphere of old Istanbul.”
