Posted Image People don't travel to Turkey to shop in western department stores, although very good examples of these do exist. The real excitement of Turkish shopping is the experience of getting lost in historic bazaars which date back five hundred years; of bargaining with shop-keepers whose great-great-grand fathers kept the same trade and sold the same wares; to be surrounded by the hustle and bustle and shouts and cries of the hawkers, merchants and travelling salesmen who seem to occupy every street corner. Once you have experienced bargaining with a Turkish stall keeper, shopping back at home will never be quite the same again!

I agree with this, and bargaining is as always super important! Loved shopping in Turkey.
