"Egyptian Bazaar" Istanbul Shopping Tip by SirRichard

Istanbul Shopping: 307 reviews and 538 photos

  Inside the Bazaar
by SirRichard

Egyptian Bazaar is the 2nd most famous bazaar in Istanbul, after the Grand Bazaar. It was originally dedicated to those itms coming from Egypt (so the name) and mostly to varied spices, though lately is full of souvenirs, apple teas and that stuff. Anyway is worth the visit, is nice to see the many colors of the spices and the nice smells.
To get there, go down to Eminonu, find the Yeni Cami Mosque, and it is on your right hand.
