A friend's husband went to Istanbul and visited the Grand Bazaar. We asked him to bring home soap from Dervis which I had researched when I knew he was going on the trip. He came home with the most wonderful olive oil soap. It was literally like his wife and I had never experienced soap before and believe me we... More

My grandmother loved the white scarf.... More

Our visit to Grand Bazaar was highly enriched by Levent Saglam's excellent service. We spent about 30 minutes in this shop and he explained all the Turkish bath accessories along with their associated history and traditions. Best of all, we were under no pressure to buy anything which is very hard to come by while shopping in Istanbul. We ended... More

Staying in Fener & Balat

Neighbourhood Profile
Fener & Balat
This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community, the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art in the world. Much of what’s most interesting to witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid sights, historic attractions, stunning vistas, and warm Turkish welcome, the area remains largely unperturbed by the tourist trade that characterizes the atmosphere in nearby Sultanahmet and around the Grand Bazaar. Travelers that like to explore off the beaten track will reap big rewards for making the effort to visit this low-key part of town.
