Think of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, but more dense and chaotic. This place is HUGE!! While the street vendors on the outside surrounding the main market are interesting by themselves—the main attraction is entering into the main covered market!! Get ready to have your...More

This really is one of the best markets in the world. It is huge! There is so many vendors. The fresh produce section is a must see and you'll see a bunch of fruits and vegetables that you've never seen before!
