Grand Bazaar is a lot of fun no matter you like shopping or not. Just be careful not to enter any of the rug stores unless you need to buy one. The salesmen in those stores are so good that they can literally sell you anything. We were warned by some friends about that before hand. Yet we couldn’t help entering one just out of curiosity. Some of us also didn’t believe they could convince us to buy rugs. What would we do with them? They would ‘t fit in our suitcase!
Long story short, 2 hours later, we left the store with 5 rugs purchased and shipped directly to our home addresses. The lesson: don’t enter any rug shop unless you need to buy it!
