Do you feel like you need a change of scenery? Last minute holidays are specifically tailored to suit one’s vacation preference, whether it’s a beach vacation or a Caribbean cruise, achieving a trip that will complement your personality is easy and hassle-free. If you want to combine this holiday with a bit of retail therapy, you should consider visiting Istanbul. This city has the highest number of shopping centers in Europe, and it is a shopper’s paradise.
Here are just some of the amazing shopping centers of Istanbul:
The Forum is a huge shopping center that covers an area of 495,000 square meters, and it is also home to attractions such as the Ice Museum and Turkuazoo Aquarium (there are over 10,000 marine species to see here). Some of the big name shops that have branches at The Forum include Ikea, Zara, M&S, and Boyner – there are hundreds of other retailers here as well. This is one of the largest shopping centers in Europe, and it is going to take more than one trip to do this place justice.
Armerkez is one of the most exclusive shopping centers in Istanbul, and this is the place to go if you are looking for something fancy. Many of the top brands have outlets here including big names like Lacoste, Oysho, Zara, and Mont Blanc. It is well worth visiting Armerkez after dark because this shopping center has an outrageous light display – it is like something you would expect to see on the main strip in Las Vegas.
Istinye Park is one of the nicest shopping centres to visit in Istanbul, and it has areas that are outside as well as inside. It is broken up into different areas such as the Fashion District and the Kid’s District – this makes finding stuff a bit easier.
These are just some of the amazing shopping opportunities you can enjoy during a trip to Istanbul, and we haven’t even mentioned the markets. You might be tempted to spend a lot of money on this type of holiday, but you certainly don’t have. Just walking around these shopping areas, and doing some people watching, can be great fun too.
