Shopping in the Bazaar of Kusadasi, hard selling and fun

What is this, the Bazaar in Kusadasi? It is a shopping area, let me give some advice to all male tourists, never leave your wife alone here. There are several reasons: there is a lot to buy, you need to bargain, the sales people are convincing, and it is so big that you could lose the way. Some streets are covered to protect visitors against the sun. Next to souvenirs, clothing, coloured lamps, carpets, jewellery, you also have the opportunity to take a drink on a terrace. Locals are friendly and the streets lovely with narrow alleys, mosques, and historical houses.

Wat is dit, de Bazaar van Kusadasi? Het is een winkelgebied. Sta me toe wat advies te geven aan mannelijk toeristen, laat je vrouw hier nooit alleen achter. Er zijn verschillende redenen: je kan er veel kopen, je moet onderhandelen, de verkopers zijn overtuigend, en het is zo groot dat je de weg kan kwijt geraken. Sommige straten zijn overdekt om de bezoekers te beschermen tegen de zon. Naast souvenirs verkoopt men er kledij, gekleurde lampen, tapijten, juwelen, en je hebt ook de mogelijkheid iets te drinken op een gezellig terras. De lokale mensen zijn vriendelijk en de straten mooi met kleine steegjes, moskees, en historische huisjes..
