Shopping in Edirne

Those of you who cannot resist shopping, can freak out in the traditional markets of Bedesten and Arasta. However, the most famous bazaar is that of Ali Pasa, which was built by an architect called Sinan. For gifts and memorabilia Ali Pasa is the best place.

Edirne is famous for handicrafts, fruit soaps (since the 17th century these soaps are being manufactured in the shape of various fruits and are scented with musk, rose and amber fragrances.)
