Window Shopping In Istanbul's Grand Bazaar (VIDEO)

Istanbul's Grand Bazaar is a must on any cruiser's sightseeing list. In fact, our ship had a free shuttle bus ready to take you there and back throughout the day. (When taking you to a place where there's no shopping, shuttle buses are generally not free.) As you can see from this clip, the market is thriving -- and it's a hit with locals as well as tourists.
