Istiklal Street, Beyoglu
For a much more upscale shopping spree to rival Paris and Vienna, go where the socialites and stars shop; Nisantasi in Tesvikiye. All labels known to mankind are located along this long, long street of shops. The New Year lights and decorations in Nisantasi are absolutely stunning and alone worth visiting for.
With several more popular shopping districts on the Asian side as well, such as Kadikoy, Istanbul is a major shopping destination. Also, you would be surprised to discover that Europe's largest and the world's sixth largest shopping mall is also in Istanbul. Cevahir Mall houses over 280 shops, some which are unique, 12 cinemas, 48 restaurants, and too much else to count. It also boasts the largest clock in the world.
