    IN GENERAL: SHOPPING IN BODRUM

    by whitecliff62 Updated Jan 8, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the joys of visiting Turkey is the vast array of shopping, you can get almost anything here at a fraction of the price you would pay in most countries. Bodrum has a great shopping area which is located from the bus station all the way down to the marina. This photo was taken in the main shopping area near mc donalds, but it does get very busy here at night

    can kardesler kuruyemis: turkish delight

    by erendilight Written Aug 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    you would like to eat all in the shop:) read this little article about turkish delight "lokum" by Tom Brosnahan : "He marched into his confectioner's kitchen and mixed water, sugar, corn starch, cream of tartar and rosewater, cooked it up, poured the mixture into a flat pan slicked with almond oil, and let it cool. Then he sprinkled it with powdered sugar, cut it into bite-sized chunks and...his hand trembling, his eyes bright with anticipation, his mind fraught with trepidation, his lips quivering to receive the morsel...he bit!

    What? No crack of candy crunched by his mighty alpine jaws? No shower of sugary splinters scattering through his oral cavity? Why, this new confection was soft and easy to chew, a pleasure, a treat for both palate and teeth! It was... it was...a comfortable morsel!"

    What to buy: turkish delight with lots of different kinds..

    What to pay: depends between 10 euros and 30 euros for each pack..

    market: Bodrum market

    by dd99 Written Jun 10, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went to Bodrum market (Tuesday is market day). Not a fun experience - we got there by about 10:30 in the morning and the place was PACKED - difficult to move in many places...

    The only people we saw were tourists - and the market is geared towards them. Prices in euros/pounds - did not find any bargains whatsoever. Would suggest an hour tops to suffice here...

    What to buy: You can find better bargains along the main shopping street and around town

    Hand made sandals
    Skilled artisans can make you a pair of snugly fitting leather sandals in the traditional Aegean style. You will find craftsmen in the centre of Bodrum - like Ali Usta and others. You can either order or try one of the pairs they have in stock. Even Mike Jagger has one of these Bodrum hand made sandals of Ali Usta...

    What to buy: sandals for a fresh breath of your feet:)

    What to pay: that depends what kind of o sandal you wish or how long it takes to produce it... between 40 to 200 Euros.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A "shopping centre" with numerous shops with bags,clothes, food and souveniers. The shops are covered by an ivy trellis, so you can walk around and keep out of the sun whilst browsing.

    What to buy: Lots of fake designer ware i.e bags and clothes. but it also has original goods as well. Turkish glassware, multi coloured glass made into vases and dishes. The evil eye and Turkish delight! Jewellery shop selling all kinds of designs in gold and silver.

    What to pay: You dont have to spend a lot if you are prepared to haggle with the shop owners!...sometimes just walking away and saying you might be back later, will make them drop their price!!!

    Fruit market

    by MalenaN Updated Oct 1, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The fruits look very inviting and are very tasty. Living in a country in the north I often eat imported fruits but never have the peaches and watermelons in Sweden tasted as the ones in Turkey.

    Take the chance and eat a lot of fruit of the season!

    In Bodrum there is a big fruit market above the otogar, just in front of a supermarket. The second time I went there it was empty, but probably because it was Sunday and therefore closed.

    Turkish market (bazaar)

    by andrea.d Written Sep 10, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once a week there is a street market in Turgutreis and there you can really buy all kinds of things if you're willing to go through the crowd and bargon with the people selling.

    What to buy: Well, if you decide going to the street market, a good idea would be to buy something turkish! That could be something of turkish art, like kilim. Killim is a type of a carpet or a rug, usually hand made. The Kilim is a truly remarkable tradition maintained by women of Anatolia for hundreds of generations, dating back nine thousand years. Turkish mothers and daughters maintained this mysterious tradition for the last thousand years as Turkish tribes settled in Anatolia and intermingled with the local population.

    What to pay: Depends on what you're bying!

    Oasis Gold Shop: Gold Jewellery

    by mvtouring Written Jul 6, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is quite a large shop that we were taken to for Gold and Silver Jewellery. There prices were very competitive and I overheard some of the English people saying that it was a lot cheaper than in England. What makes this shop nice is that if you go there on a regular basis i.e. once per annum, you have five years within which you can exchange your jewellery for something new at the same price or else pay in the difference.
