Bazaars are sort of like a cross between a street market and a shopping centre as they are in a building of sorts and grouped together but with elements of markets
the shops we went to was near our resort (the BArut Lara hotel) there was a few bazaars grouped together
the guys there were nice but pushy, wanting you to go into their shop to look
i dont think i need to say this but -- the 'designer' stuff they are selling is obviously fake. of course you cant buy a real D&G bag, Lacoste top or Prada shoes for 10 lira (3 pounds-ish)
one guy did freely admit this, telling my dad that he was selling 'genuine fakes' which we all had a good laugh about
What to buy: the bazaars dont really sell food, they are more clothes, shoes, bags, watches and souveneirs
What to pay: they are all pretty cheap as they are fakes and mass-produced souvenirs
street shopping: old district shopping
street shopping in the new town and in the old district of antalya is wonderful thing ,the wide and beautiful pavements in the new area and the narrow and stylish architectured streets in the old area its realy a pleasure to walk there even if you didnt buy anything
Ozdilek: Ozdilek-the biggest Mall in Antalya
In 2010 everybody in Europe stop buying as the crisis have hit all the rich countries on the old continent.
Turkey (especially Antalya) was one of the special exceptions.
It was a kind of "shopping rush" when we have been there, but something I have never seen before.
They were buying everything with an un-explicable excitement.
The locals were trying clothes between the shelves as all the cabins were full and they had anyway to wait long minutes in queues to pay for the chosen ones. It was actually a kind of fight to spend money... so difficult to explain and understand it.
The show itself was an amazing one and I have spent minutes looking at that crowd and admiring its movement, their gestures and the general "hum".
Akord Muzik: Authentic Musical Instruments
If you want to see beautiful hand crafted Turkish Musical Instruments, meet the man who crafted them, and hear him demonstrate them, then this is the shop for you. I was searching for such a shop and the visit became my best experience in all Turkey. The owner is a kind man who will explain the way he makes them, But first, he will most likely offer you a tea, and then show you the workshop where he builds them. He does not mind you asking questions, and he will explain why some of them are more expensive, and you will hear this difference too.
You are going to see so many beautiful wooden instruments, they are hanging from the ceiling, literally.
This shop is found by tram two stops from the clock tower. So it is not far, even to walk there.
I had my instrument sent by post to my home in Italy, and this might be choice for you. This way is a bit of trouble for him, but he is wanting to help.
He lives above the shop, so you might get a chance to meet his family, as they help out.
Anyone interested in Turkish Folk Music.... Should make this a stop!
What to buy: See the photo, this is what I purchased and he is demonstrating it for me. I am also putting up a video of this on VT.
He also has meys and neys, reeds and a kind of oboe sounding instrument, too
I also saw yamaha guitars, etc...
He speaks English, just remember to speak slowly.
What to pay: The prices are very reasonable. This is not a shop to rip off tourists. It is a serious music shop.
The usual bargaining.... not here. This man makes these with his own hands and his prices are so good that you won't feel like negotiating with him. You will feel satisfied that you are getting a wonderful instrument at a good price. ( I am a music teacher, and I know a value when I see one.)
It is better to pay in Turkish Lira, but he will take Euros.

many places: Pottery
They make lovely pottery here in Turkey. Very colourful. A good idea as a gift is to buy one of these little pots, fill it with either sweets or spices and give it as a gift to someone back home.
Buying some of these lovely spices for yourself or as a gift is a great idea. I bought some together with a cook book to bring back home as a gift to my nephew that is a chef.
Various: Shopping Street
Entrance to the shopping street- great place for souvenirs, antiques and carpets/Persian Rugs/Kilims.
- Arts and Culture
Many Shops: Turkish T - Shirts
What to pay: For a simple shirt having a simple turksih flag on it I have paid 7 Million TRL. You must bargain for the price and not to hesistate at all.
many places: Belly dancing outfit
Why not buy yourself a belly dancing outfit that you cn wear to the next fancy dress party? Or buy one for your little girl, she is bound to feel like a princess in one of these outfits.
Antalya bazar: Small (fake) jewelry
What to buy: As you can see, the daughters were selecting colourful bracelets for all their girlfriends back home.
The bazar is a paradise for these small but cheap souvenirs
Many places sell carpets, Persian rugs... beautiful designs that can enhance any room. Prices vary, of course, but you can probably negotiate with them.
