Antalya shops and markets
Shopping in Turkey and, in particular, in Antalya is a great addition to your vacation. There are countless places for shopping here, prices are not high, the quality of goods may vary, you need to be on the lookout. Euros, dollars and Turkish lira are accepted as currencies. But before you give up this currency, you should bargain well. In the markets and in small shops, it will not be superfluous to have a notebook and a pencil with you for this process. It is impossible to bargain in large sales centers, but getting a discount for paying in cash is real.
- Gulluk Street is one of the central streets of Antalya. All the first floors of the buildings are given over to shops. This street is a great place to shop for things from Turkish manufacturers. The prices are low, the choice of goods is huge. It is easier to say what is not here, or rather not enough. There are few shops with leather goods and goods for children. There is only one store with children's goods - "Waikiki". The street is well-groomed, during the day numerous flowerpots with flowers attract attention, at night - multi-colored illumination.
- Ataturk Street - this street is often called "Ishiklar" in conversation, but if you use a navigator, the name "Ataturk" will still be accurate information for it. It has some good leather goods stores. One of them offers bags and accessories. Local bags are indistinguishable from well-known prototype brands; only an incredibly low price can suggest a fake. The quality of the leather, seams, logos and even documents confirming the authenticity are beyond praise. There are more children's clothes here than on Gulluk, there is also "Waikiki". In general, the quality of things at Ataturk is higher, and accordingly the prices are slightly higher. The street is located next to the Old Town, so after seeing the sights, you don't need to run far for shopping, everything is nearby. The only problematic is to park a car here - it is crowded and crowded..
Almost every district of Antalya has its own shopping and entertainment center. They have everything you need for comfortable shopping - restaurants and cafes, cinemas, playgrounds. Discounts for certain groups of goods can be found here at any time of the year. Shopping centers offer a huge selection of goods for all occasions.

Leather goods are especially popular with tourists in Turkey. In Antalya, it is profitable to buy them in large shopping centers, and not in special stores for tourists, in which prices will be specially inflated.

As in any eastern city, the markets in Antalya are imbued with a special unique atmosphere. In the markets you can buy dry and fresh fruits, vegetables, sweets, spices, inexpensive clothes. Each district of the city has its own market, and it can only work a couple of days a week..
- The Charampol market is located in the city center at the intersection of Charampol and Sokullu. Despite the fact that this is the center of the city, there are few tourists here and prices are low. Here locals make their purchases. On the first floor they sell food, and on the second - clothes, shoes, bags, sunglasses, bed linen. The quality of goods is different, you can buy outright nonsense, but you can find a worthwhile thing.
