Turkey is a country that is strategically positioned where east meets west. Istanbul, the country’s largest city, is split by the Bosphorus, dividing the continents of Europe and Asia. Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar, or Kapalı Çarşı, dates to 1455 and was established shortly after the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople. Over the centuries it has grown into a warren of 61 streets lined by more than 3,000 shops and currently occupies a nearly incomprehensible 333,000 square feet. You’ll never possibly be able to explore it all, but that doesn’t keep people from trying — According to Travel + Leisure, the Grand Bazaar was the world’s #1 attraction in 2014, drawing over 91 million people.
Traveling in Turkey is far less expensive than nearby European countries, but it offers many of the same comforts and luxuries. Food is quite affordable though, even in nicer sit-down restaurants. You’ll find no shortage of dessert options anywhere in this country. Cakes and pastries are cheap, delicious, and ubiquitous.
Turkey is a surprisingly large country, and despite its wonderful bus system, trips can often be uncomfortably long and are often overnight. If you’re on a short trip, consider booking at least one flight so that you can make the most of your time in this incredible country. For the shorter trips, buses are definitely sufficient, but when traveling from Turkey further into Turkey, a flight will save you a lot of time and hassle.
