Old Bazaar & The Old City of Antalya

Are you ready for color, spice, souvenirs, and all things Turkish?  Let me take you on my sightseeing trip to the Old City of Antalya.   In this post I will carry on where I left off a few posts ago.  I had woken up early on the 4th of August, 2014, to go sightseeing all by myself in Antalya.  Then I had stumbled across Haidan’s Gate which I had not even known was here in Antalya – so happy that I had left the resort to go see the sights.  Now, I headed for the Old Bazaar.

I think I took my first selfie, by looking through a mirror and taking a picture with me in it.  I think that’s still classed as a selfie?

Now, I did it again with my Note 3

The people in Antalya greet you warmly, and will give you a cup of tea for just coming into their store.  This woman gave me a sample of tea.

When I went to this shop that sold delicious Turkish Delights, the man who sold them to me was so happy, he even ordered a cup of tea for me.  This reminded me of India, where I have only been once when I was 14, but I remember the same thing happening there.  When my mum would go in a store to buy material or Punjabi suits, the people in the store would order tea for everyone, even I would get a cup of tea at 14.  I was happy about that, as I even liked my tea back then.

Here I am looking at the spices – these are the same spices that we use in our Indian food

Then I left the Old Bazaar, and ventured around the streets of the Old City, before heading towards the bay.
