Tehran’s Grand Bazaar may not be as exotic as the one in Istanbul, but it offers a variety of shops and a great window on Iran’s daily life. Unlike the Istanbulus one, the Tehrani bazar is where locals do their shopping, well, at least the middle class. You will get lost along corridors of small shops selling clothing, spices, vegetables, chocolates, tea, coffee, birds and things that will leave you wondering what they actually are. Both Moslem Restaurant and Golestan Palace can be included with the Bazaar in a half-day trip to Central Tehran.
