    Nisantasi, Istanbul, TR

    by TrendsetterME Written May 10, 2013

    Nisantasiı is a quarter of Sisli district in Istanbul, comprising neighbourhoods like Tesvikiye, Osmanbey, Macka and Pangaltı. It includes the stores of world famous brands and has many popular cafés, pubs, restaurants and night clubs.

    Abdi İpekci Street, Turkey's most expensive shopping street in terms of lease prices, stretches from the neighbourhoods of Macka and Tesvikiye to the center of Nisantası.

    Nisantası was settled by Sultan Abdulmecid I in the middle of the 19th century. He erected two obelisks to define the beginning point and the ending point of the quarter. He ordered the construction of the Neo-Classical style Tesvikiye Police Station and the Neo-Baroque style Tesvikiye Mosque for a proper district, encouraging the citizens of Istanbul to settle here.

    Nisantası is today a fashionable shopping district and an affluent residential area. Its has the largest community of foreign residents in Istanbul after Taksim and Cihangir.

    I strongly advise you to give a visit to Nisantasi area, even you dont make shopping, just walk around, have a seat in a fashion cafe and enjoy .... :)

    What to buy: All kind of "high-end" brands are located at Nisantasi district ... Clothes, jewellery, shoes, bags, electronics, sportswear and all kind of related materials ...

    What to pay: Depends on what you buy, but be ready to pay a lot ... :)

    Koska 1907 - Turkish Specialities

    by HORSCHECK Updated Apr 6, 2013

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Koska is a chain of Turkish confectionery shops, which was founded in 1907.

    One of their specialities is Turkish Delight (Lokum), which is a confectionery, based on a syrup of starch, sugar and often mastic. It is usually flavoured with lemon, orange, nuts, pistachios and similar treats.

    On offer are also many other traditional Turkish sweets, as well as several sorts of nuts or teas or other drinks. So it is a perfect place to buy some small presents to take home.

    I bought a paket with 20 bags of Salep powder for 7,50 TYR here. Mixed with hot milk it makes a typical Turkish winter drink with the flour of the tubers of wild orchids. In addition I got a bag with yummy pistachios as a present.

    Directons
    There are several Koska shops in Istanbul. I visited the one in the pedestrianised shopping street Istiklal Caddesi at No 178A in Istanbul's Beyoglu district. Other shops can be found in the districts of Karaköy or Eminönü

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bright, colourful, artistic lights are found everywhere in Istanbul. Made of glass and stained glass and cut work, they are irresistible.You need to bargain. They bubble wrap it for you. Better to buy the smaller versions if you have a long way to travel.

    Markets: In the street

    by solopes Updated Sep 2, 2012

    When we talk about "Markets" in Istanbul, Ninety nine per cent of the people imagine immediately the Grand Bazaar. However, all the city lives, and markets may happen in many places, in organized places or in the streets.

    We found a street market behind the Blue mosque, and we were atracked by the strong colours, but also by the clean look of everything.

  • Charlie's Classics: Be careful of this shop in the Arasta Bazaar!

    by element23 Written Jul 5, 2012

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went to this shop looking for a leather belt. I found one (to be fair, a nice black leather belt) and bargained it down to 45 lire. The merchant gave me 5 lire back and, before giving me the other 50 TL, he started showing me other belts. I thought this was strange, but after he gave me a note that looked like a 50.

    Later I took a taxi and discovered I only had two 5 lire notes. I believe that I may have been tricked by the leather ware shop merchant. When I went back to the shop later to tell the merchant, he claimed it was the taxi driver who duped me, saying that drivers often switch the 5 and the 50 notes (the notes look similar, with the only obvious difference being that the 5 is slightly smaller). Of course, either one could have done it.

    While I can't say for sure whether I got ripped off by the merchant or the taxi, the little 'distraction' that the merchant made me when he showed me the other belts leads me to believe it was him.

    I won't say not to shop here, but I will stress that you should always be on your guard in a foreign country, and always count your change!

    Galeri Kayseri: English books in Istanbul

    by Deng249 Updated Dec 16, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I was in Istanbul in October, I found this cool bookstore on Divan Yolu, in Sultanahmet area...Located near the Sultanahmet tram station. There are 2 branches located opposite each other on the same street. It has a great collection of local books in English, fiction and non fiction. They even arrange for your books to be shipped back to your country.

    The name of the bookshop is Galeri Kayseri. (The signboard says, Bookshop). You won't missed it due to the location.

    Anyway, when I was at the bookstore, I was recommended to read work by Elif Shafak. I bought her "40 rules of Love". Another one I was recommended was a book titled "Potrait of my Turkish Family" by Irfan Orga.

    What to buy: Local books in English, either written by Turkish authors or foreign authors but the subject would be on Turkey.

    What to pay: Price ranged, depends on the content. Non fiction may be expensive, especially on archeology.
