Marmaris Grand Bazaar

If you come to the small resort town of Marmaris and want to buy gifts for yourself and your loved ones from this beautiful place, it is impossible not to fall on your way to the Old Bazaar, which is built as the architectural design of Istanbul's Grand Bazaar.

Why should I go? It will be an excellent experience to have a pleasant time for a few hours in the Old Bazaar. However, we have to say that there are a lot of ingration products in the market and the prices are quite high. However, if you try, you can come across stores that sell specialty products.

Miss! You can make tastings by entering the crowd formed in front of the shops selling authentic and regional products. While you're here, don't come back without citrus jam and the famous Marmaris honey!
