As it might sound like a place where you wouldn’t be sure what to shop for it’s mainly a wonderful place to experience Turkish culture. You can also experience the Turkish bath, a must do if you never went to a Turkish bath before and enjoy relaxation. Some of them are as old as 1500 years. You can also experience Turkish culture further with a visit to the Topkapi Palace and its huge Harem where the Sultan’s wives and concubines used to live.
On your way off of TopKapi Palace you may want to stop at the Istanbul Archaeological Museum. You will learn a lot about the history of the only city in the world located on two continents at the same time.
