  • 販售許多伊朗特色商品,但不見得很便宜 反而是一些日常用品,價格比較合理 可能購買慾望不高,因此只是亂逛亂看,沒有特別買東西 
  • I know the bazaar of Shiraz from more than 10 visits in the course of the last five decades, 1965... He has lost nothing of its attractiveness and hardly anything on its originality and is one of the biggest attractions in this beautiful city with its hospitable people. Unfortunately, many friends who I met on my travels over the decades, are now deceased. But it is a joy in my age again and again how quickly you always find interlocutors in Shiraz and can close friendships not only with Basaris, but also with street acquaintances who ask whether one is interested in a conversation without ulterior motive and also contribute to a tea or coffee really report on their personal situation. From my last trip in the spring of 2016, at least 2 Shirazi are me (together with the family, there I was invited) "left"; quite often letter - email is too problematic and also doesn't work that way, as we here are used to with us.

  • Shiraz is awesome. You have to stay there at least for 2 days. We have been amazed by all these lovely carpets and mosques and bazzar are great too. Really nice experience
  • this old historical bazaar has a lot to offer, even people watching can be part of the activity! you can mostly find hand crafted decorations or ornaments plus great spices
  • The bazzar is maze-like, odourful and colourful but it is a little bit seedy after dark. You can find everything from second-hand goods, clothes, fruits and souvenir. Be prepared to spend a couple hours to shop here.
  • Shiraz traditional market where you can see the most beautiful handicrafts of the region as well as carpets and local custom. The building has a unique architecture and you can see the ancient art in it.
  • The historic market really nice. I invite all people of the world to see Shiraz.
