The opening scenes of Skyfall finds James Bond (Daniel Craig) in Turkey, in search of a stolen hard drive in Istanbul, a modern and vibrant city with an enchanting blend of Eastern and Western culture.

The high-speed pursuit continues across the rooftops and then inside Istanbul's famous Grand Bazaar, one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world. Skyfall is the third Bond film to feature Istanbul, following From Russia with Love, and The World is Not Enough. Follow in the footsteps of 007 and research the legacy of Istanbul’s chequered past. Indulge in an exciting shopping experience at The Grand Bazaar, with 60 streets and 5,000 shops well known for jewellery, hand-painted ceramics, carpets, embroideries, spices and antiques.
