    Turkey Shopping

    Most of our shopping was done in Istanbul. Grand Bazaar is the best place to buy traditional things like baklava, Turkish Delight and Turkish tea. Other than this there a lot of things to buy in Turkey that people would fancy.

    Food

    Food in Turkey is absolutely great. Turkish food can be found in every corner. We really did have a feast during every meal. But if I would have to recommend something then I will suggest Pasha restaurant and Cafe in Goreme. There are several Indian restaurants in Turkey that people can enjoy if craving desi food.

    Tips For Traveling To Turkey

    • You need to bargain at Grand Bazar
    • Don’t visit Cappodocia in and around the Chinese new year because the city would be flooded with Chinese people. And you might pay double the charges for hot air balloon
    • When visiting a mosque, cover your shoulders and knees
    • Use public transport across turkey as it is cheaper and convenient
