Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar (Kapali Çarsi, or Covered Market) is Turkey’s largest covered market (you can see a small fraction of it here).
You can buy almost anything. The colours, sights, sounds and smells are exciting, intoxicating and intimidating all at once. Watch out for pickpockets and bag-slashers in the crowds.
Most guidebooks claim that it has 4000 shops.
