This place is the largest shopping center in Europe and the sixth-largest in the world. It is in the Silsi district of Istanbul, in the center. This mall doesn't look old at all, with 6-story modern architecture with a large clock in the glass ceiling. It has more than 300 shops, twelve cinemas and also a small amusement park with roller coasters and a shuttle! This is a good choice for running from the high temperatures in Turkey ;)
This former Koranic school is now a craft bazaar in which each of the craft kiosks occupies one of the rooms facing the courtyard. The two classrooms that the school once had have been transformed into a cozy cafe where you can take a break from the crafts and then continue visiting this megalopolis of shopping.
Migros Shopping Center is a small, pleasant shopping center in Antalya with well-known international brands like Zara, Mango, Lacoste and Tommy Hilfiger. The prices aren't exactly a bargain but they're not expensive either.
Kircilar is one of the leading manufacturers of fur in Turkey. They established an outlet in Cappadocia, which sells all kinds of sheepskin products. They offer discounts ranging up to 50%. The products are of a high quality and therefore not necessarily cheap.
Located on Istiklal Caddesi, the commercial artery of modern Istanbul, Demirören is a shopping mall that’s designed in a lot of ways to bring Istanbul’s image into the 21st century, especially among foreign visitors. When you first enter, you’re immediately surprised by the eye-catching spiral escalators and the beautiful undulating glass atrium. As far as the stores go, there is a mix of big-name international chains like MediaMarkt, The Gap, and Guess Jeans as well as some interesting Turkish chains I had never seen before (and which come in handy if you’re looking to pick up a different souvenir). The real reason to visit Demirören, however, is for its luxurious 3-D cinema and its food court with balconies looking out over the street.
It’s also a nice place to take a break if you’re a bit worn out from beating the pavement among Beyoglu. On the second floor, there’s a Kirspy Kreme of all things with comfy sofas and free wi-fi and bathrooms. It’s not a must-see by any stretch of the imagination (malls are definitely not one of the most interesting things to see in Istanbul), but if you’re out doing some shopping on Istiklal Caddesi, it’s worth a visit.
