  A tour group in a carpet shop..

One favourite thing to buy in Turkey is handmade carpets.. You can find awesome carpets all around the country.. However where to buy and who to trust is a major problem..

Most Tourist tours are being taken to shops by the tour guides. No cahnce to select the shop... There is also a favorite thing to visit village houses where they handmade the carpets.. But still as a tourist you may not compare the prices..

My advice is to visit more than one shop always. There are many nice carpet shops and kind owners, however still some dishonests are present, the best way is to compare the quality and prices..

If you happen to buy a carpet ask for a receipt paper, you may be asked in your home country..

What to buy: Handmade carpets..

What to pay: One valuable tip is for the wool carpets, the price shall be around 100-120 USD per m2..
