Shopping in Istanbul


You can’t come to Istanbul and avoid them because you will find them everywhere. The city counts 114 commercial center which is just enormous. As a tourist, look for those where you can find almost all the brands, like Cevahir or forum Istanbul.


When you live here you avoid to shop in Taksim because it’s always crowded but still, it’s here where you can find all the brands twice haha (those who came here before will understand what are we talking about) and where you can live the tourist/traveler experience. But we always felt that in Malls the prices are more competitive so it depends on you.

Egyptian Bazaar/Eminonu

Egyptian bazaar is mainly for spices. No clothes there but it’s still shopping no ?! If you want to buy some for your kitchen, don’t skip the opportunity. Eminonu is just behind the Egyptian Bazaar, you can find there Towels, Pajamas, sweatsuits and even swimwears for veiled women.

Grand Bazaar

This is the most known market in Istanbul and it’s mainly for home and decor shopping.


They are also commercial centers where mainly the turkish brand are doing sales all over the year. The one we love the most is Airport AVM in Yenibosna.
