    By the street: Shopping in Alanya

    by gugi66 Written Sep 8, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Alanya is shoppers paradise. In every corner you will find a shop with designer bags, designers clothes, designer towels and designer shoes (copy of course).

    In shops that don't have fix prices you have to haggle or you will pay overprice.

    If you buy a couple of things from the same store you can haggle down the price with about 50%. If you buy only one thing you can get the price down about 30%.

    This is some guidelines that worked for me, but of course if you can haggle good you can get the price over 50%.

    Bazaar Centre Alanya: Best Buys

    by RoyJava Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The bazaar, full of colours, and the happy night-life made Alanya very popular with local and European tourists. Alanya is great to shop and you'll find prices that are relatively low. Explore the old town and go Eastside in the streets along the beach.

    Get your leather goods, shoes, bags, clothes, spices, tea, gold and silver (one street even is named "Gold Street"). Here is "haggling" a must, thought don't play with the guys! Too many tourist got to be stuck by their ridiculous bids (it's not Indonesia).

    What to buy: A beautiful Turkish carpet!

    When want to buy a "Kilim" (Turkish carpet) get some good info about! The colourful and beautiful carpets has been known for over 3.000 years and differ from other oriental carpets (for its double knots). A pity we haven't took the time to go for a good deal ...
    Visit as many as possible shops before you make a deal ...

    What to pay: Buying a Gucci/Coco Chanel t-shirt, a Louis Vuiton purse and Versace shawl the prices are indeed ridiculous, so donot go higher as 1 Euro per item when buying a lot ...

    You must always bargain in Alanya if you dont want to be cheeted. Dont trust the friendly behaviour of the salaesmen. You can find the same quality in every shop. before buying ask the price in various shops and buy the reasonable one. I bought esterday a blue shirt that I loved. although I am a Turk at first the price was 15, then 10 and I bought it at 5 TL.

    There are 4 different prices here in Alanya
    1- price for locals, 2- price for Turks located in Alanya such as me, 3- price for tourist Turks, 4- poor foreigners

    Happy buyings.

    IN GENERAL: WALL TO WALL CARPETS

    by whitecliff62 Updated Jan 7, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are really serious about buying a carpet in Turkey then visit as many carpet shops as you can before making your mind up, in Alanya there are loads of carpet shops so finding one you like should be easy, the hard bit is deciding how much to pay. There is a very good tip to learn when buying a good quality carpet, first make sure it is 100% wool and then turn the carpet over and check the closeness of the weave, in general the tighter the weave and the smaller the knots, the higher the quality. Also carpets with natural dyes tend to fetch a higher price than the chemical dyes so try not to be ripped off into buying a natural dye carpet when you might be buying a chemical dye carpet. One more big, big, tip to learn as i found to my cost, do not be tempted into buying a carpet at or on a tour, as this is on the photo, the price will be at least 35% higher to cover the tours overheads. I found in Alanya that some shops will actually check your credit and let you pay in instalments and then arrange to have your carpet shiped back home for you. And remember, haggle for everything, IT COULD SAVE YOU LOADS OF CASH.

    Bazaar area in the city center: Shopping paradise!

    by HyperFredde Written Aug 12, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oh my god! Turkey is a popular place in Scandinavia, probably because it is cheap in Turkey. You can buy stuff that you actually buy at home, but difference is the price. Of course there are just copies, but who will know that when you wear the clothes at home?
    You have got to bargain! I recommend at least 30 - 50 %. If you don't like the price, just go a way slowly and they will scream "I make ... whatever the price you wanted".

    What to buy: Clothes, jewels, watches & lether.

    What to pay: You should not pay more than €10 for 5 t-shirts, not more than €10 for 10 boxershorts (I got 16 for 10 euros).

    Shop till you drop!

    by Monique_T Written May 5, 2003

    This is not just about one shop but about the market. I just love to go to the Turkish markets. I think it is fun, they have a lof on sale, it's nice to walk around and look at all the stuff. And ofcourse buy a lot. It is not expensive in Turkey so I usually spend too much money there.
    And part of the game is that you have to bargain there. I am not all good at that but my husband is, so that's his job.

    What to buy: I bought some gold there, a bag, shirts, apple tea, Turkish delight (I just love that), but there is lots and lots more.
