I love to shop and find great finds and shopping in Istanbul was made fun with these bazaars & markets
I bought a ring that is beautiful from this awesome guy ! You can find incredible jewelry for $20.00 – items that some of stores here would sell 4x as much !
and some scarves from CASHMERE HOUSE – Istanbul’s bazaar offers a ton of beautiful scarves beyond scarves I bought awesome cotton HAREM pants – Harem pants are so comfortable and I think so chic !
Then off to the spice markets
They love dried fruits – this is dried apricots and pistachios
Istanbul is known for strong teas and incredible coffee – when in ISTANBUL this is the famous coffee maker – go here and bring your friends and family coffee home :
We had dinner that night in TUNEL right up the street from our hotel at this incredibly yummy place called
Sofyali 9 and then came out with many choices for our appetizers and then what we loved is you receive a wireless mouse
when you would like attention from the waiter you hit the button – such an interesting concept http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g293974-d787038-Reviews-Sofyali_9_tunel_off_istikal-Istanbul.html
