Shopping in Bitez and Bodrum


I was wondering what shopping is like in Bitez and Bodrum. Is it mainly souks?

I would like to buy some decent leather bags.

Also is it possible to buy cheap DVD's and CD's that work well? If so can someone please advise me where to go for the best deals?

Bitez is only a small place(large vllage)and there are some nice shops there to look round.The main shopping is in Bodrum.There are no souks the same as Tunisia or Egypt but there is the old part of the town around the castle and the harbour which is lovely to stroll around.There is also the big modern Oasis shopping and leisure centre which has some nice shops.You will find many shops selling bags-many designer knock offs but also others selling really good quality originals.As for the cd's and dvd's don't buy from a street stall get them from a shop and ask them to let you see them running first.İf it is legitimate stock that will be no problem for them to do.

There are a few shops in Bitez but the best shopping is in Bodrum. There is no souk as such but there is a covered area with lots of little shops.

You will find lots of bag shops,just haggle with the price and you should be able to get a good price.

There is also a market in Bodrum on a Tuesday next to the bus station and another big on on a Saturday at Turgutreis, which you can get to easily by bus from Bodrum.

There are not so many places selling cheap cds as there used to be and I always find it best to buy in a shop anyway, there are a couple of good cd shops in Bodrum and you can alaos get them in the big supermarkets.
