Check out Taksim, its a pretty sick place known for its younger and hipper vibe. They have a bunch of shops and restaurants there. You can also check out Cevahir Mall, its the largest mall in Europe.

You have a lot of shopping options in Turkey. Many companies like Diesel, Mavi, and other popular brands have factories there and you can pick up stuff CHEAP! Be sure to try the food when you are out there, it is absolutely delicious. I recommend Iskender, doner, and kusbasi kasar pide as a start. Just remember like anywhere else, you have good places and not so good places, so make your rounds.

I have a ton of family in Istanbul, I cant wait to see them this summer. Its a beautiful place, enjoy your stay!
