Istanbul shopping
In two weeks I'm going to Istanbul. I know the city (so,so), since this is not my first time there, but there must be a lot I dont know. Someone who lives there any advice for some good shopping?
Thanks, Aya

You can go to Beymen if you are intested in designer clothes.Beymen is located in Abdi Ipekcı Street in Nisantasi.If you wanna buy lovely dresses ,you can to go Machka .It's also on the same street.

you should check certain shops in istiklal street but they are located in big passages like aznavur, atlas etc.

and there is also a nice shop called Bis near the French Street just next to Cezayir Restaurant

and if you like designer clothes you should go to abdi ipekci ave. in nisantasi

^ You can find nearly all of them in Istinye Park Mall. It is a bit far away from the city center (like 20-25 min cab ride) but it will be worth it if you are really into designer stuff.

any new tips about shopping in istanbul? i'm not really interested in designers' stores but i would like to know smaller special shops which would be worth to check. especially i would like to know if there's anything interesting in sisli district. i'm gonna stay there so i suppose it would be the easiest for lonely shopping.

^ There are various quarters in Sisli. One of them is Nisantasi area. Nisantasi is one of the most upscale neighborhoods in Istanbul. If you walk around Abdi İpekci and Vali Konagi streets, you will see many of the luxury and mainstream brands you can think of. If you walk up Rumeli Street towards the underground station, you'll probably walk through the garment district which has a more downtown feel to it.

If I were you, I would take the underground and also visit Kanyon shopping mall in Levent. Levent is the new part of the city. It is the one of the most beautiful open-air malls you'll ever see and it's only a 5 min. ride.

You can also take the opposite direction and go to Taksim. Central Taksim is over-crowded though. You may want to walk directly to Tünel and Galata areas (through Istiklal Street) to see the local designer boutiques and cafés around.
