Unfortunately, most of the Topkapi Palace was not photographed due to restrictions on photography in certain areas of the palace.
Egyptian or Spice Bazaar (Misir Çarsisi): This is the place to be to lay in a fresh supply of spices, nuts, honeycomb, Turkish delight, dried figs, caviar and mature hard Turkish cheese. Even if you are not there for this, it is a nice experience to walk through it. It’s a nice, small, cozy and very traditional market. It is open daily from 08.00 till 19:00. Closed on Sundays.
Grand Bazaar (Kapali Çarsi): This is the world’s oldest and largest covered market! Any visit to Istanbul is not complete without going through this. You can get good bargains if you know how to haggle with the shopkeepers. This holds more than 4,000 shops! It is open daily between 08.30 and 19.00. Closed on Sundays. Tonnes of cute necklaces, rings, etc, pashimina scarves, tea cups, and Turkish apple tea.
