  • Do not miss this place .Please check the opening and closing time .Go to Saraye Moshir .Eat Faloode shirazi near the saraye moshir as well  more »
  • Would have preferred one of Kashan, but the Bazaar of Shiraz, more than his merchandise, seduced us by its architecture (its restored caravenserails and a few tea s house), and the activity of its valiant carriers/drivers. Break all the more pleasant, interleaved between 2 or 3 cultural visits...

  • A cool bazaar with many products. We bought two water pipes on this bazaar and we got them for a good price. As well it's fun just to walk trought it.
  • This is a great place for shopping and finding cheap reasonable bouviers from Shiraz. I would highly recommend a visit here.
  • You have to visit this bazar, and particularly "saray moshir" , the heart of bazar
  • Its pretty beautiful... you can so many things from it if you travel to shiraz you must visit this place too .
  • This is one of my favorite bazaars in Iran not too commercialized it also seemed to be a hangout for people and not a hurried as the Isfahan bazaar

Where to stay in Shiraz

The main bazaar district in the center of town remains the primary place to look for accommodations in Shiraz. Standard hotels tower over the public squares, and side street hostels offer particularly budget-friendly dormitory room stays. To the north of this central district, you'll find the most opulent options in town, with luxury hotels offering commanding views of traditional Persian gardens, swimming pools, and onsite fine-dining restaurants.
