The oldest shopping mall of the world, the Grand Bazaar, amazes visitors with its bewitching smells and colors. Here, one can find an oriental world where the old Ottoman etiquette still thrives. With the tradition of negotiating over prices, the Grand Bazaar arises as a historical place, but also as one of the greatest tourist attractions of the present day. The visitor who enters this magical world will clearly be amazed that such a place still exists today. However, great expectations will not be disappointed.

The present book narrates a short history of the wondrous Grand Bazaar, a place where, in the not so distant past, commoners could meet members of the Imperial Court. What would a famous sultana buy from this enchanted and bedazzling place? How can one efficiently negotiate the price of an item in the present day at the Grand Bazaar? Even though this place will certainly bewitch the visitor, how can one remain rational and opt for the best buying choices? There is much satisfaction to be had while visiting this place which ensnares all senses, but, before all, one must be well-informed. That is where the present book comes to the reader's aid. Presenting facts in a concise and easy to read manner, the current book can be a very useful guide for those who intend to visit the Grand Bazaar as well as for those who simply want to find out more about this dream location.
