    Kanyon Shopping Center: Canyon in istanbul :)

    by Santini738 Written Jun 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kanyon is a multi-purpose complex in the Levent financial district of Istanbul, Turkey, which consists of a shopping mall, a 30-floor office tower (26 floors of which rise above Büyükdere Avenue level) and a 22-floor residential block. It unites 179 residential apartments, an office tower and a 160 store retail space (covering an area of 37,500 m²) to undulate around a dramatic architectural “canyon” since its debut in June 2006.

    The building features a special engineering technique which is used for the first time in the world: An air circulation system ventilates the open areas of the canyon-like mall and creates an invisible "thermostatic shield" enabling visitors to enjoy the open air regardless of the weather outside.

    What to buy: There are 160 Stores so there is no chance that you cant find what you are looking for :)

    in the building of the Galata Tower: Silver jewelries

    by Penelope4 Written Sep 26, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the ground floor where you pay for the entrance fee, check out the silver jewelry pieces with Turquoise, Amber, etc. You will find nicely designed pieces at prices the airport shops will be ashamed of. I compare the prices and design in other shops and I regret that I only got one piece.

    What to buy: Souvenir items but pay attention to the silver jewelries.

    What to pay: I paid only US$ 12 for a ring with high quality silver (925, nicely polished), prettily-designed with real Turquoise.

    The historic city of Istanbul forms a unified whole with the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn. Nowhere else can one find the wonders of nature, human artifacts, the testimony of the past and the bustle of everyday life in such close relationship. For those who will remain briefly in the city, there are day tours including the important historical sites, museums, the famous Covered Bazaar and its vicinity

    Bagdat Caddesi: All Your Clothing Needs

    by Jmill42 Written Feb 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the city's most well-known streets. It is analagous to Rome's Via Condotti or Paris' Champs Elyesee, in that it houses all of the high-end fashion. While expensive for Istanbul standards, it doesn't even come close to the other two. If you didn't know about Istanbul's style and find out that you want to look stylish in the clubs, this is the place you should come. My favorite store was Vakko, as it was a brand I had never heard of or seen, obviously because it is Turkish and I had never been to Turkey! Why would you want to buy Prada or Columbia in Turkey?

    It is located on the Asian side, and can easily be walked to from the ferry terminal or by taxi/bus.

    The Grand Bazaar: Some more stuff to buy at the Kapali Carsi

    by June.b Updated Sep 23, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ...and more shopping at the Grand Bazaar.

    The trouble is, even if we're not planning to buy anything inside the bazaar - I would bet it would also happen to you once you're in - we were enticed (not by the salesmen, but by ourselves) to buy something.

    Like we bought some pouffs (leather thing that you put some cloth stuff to make it like a seat), it cost us only TL5, sometimes they sell it for 10, some stores sell it for TL25/3 pieces.

    What to pay: Just haggle fairly.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Spice Bazaar, popularly known as Egyptian Bazaar (Misr Carsisi) owing to the fact that the market was built out of the taxes collected from Cairo during the Ottoman empire.

    Previously called Valide Bazaar or New Bazaar, the spice bazaar is the second covered shopping complex in the city after the Grand Bazaar.

    The bazaar is a part of the Yeni Mosque complex and revenues from the shops help to fund the expenses of the mosque. It was originally designed by the chief court architect Koca Kasým Aga, but completed by architect Mustafa in 1660.

    There are 88 shops inside the bazaar which used to be mostly spice shops but nowadays, there are lots of shops selling variety of stuff -- from souvenir items, trinkets, lamps, shawls, clothing, jewelries, bath and beauty stuff, etc.

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Grand Bazaar has lots of merchandise in it's more than a thousand of shops.

    Took some pictures so you'll have an idea on what you expect to see and probably buy inside the bazaar.

    Just don't forget to haggle, it's a form of art, and well expected.

    What to pay: Just haggle, start with half the given price, then work your way to 60-70% the most.

    Kanyon: High-end shopping

    by June.b Written Sep 23, 2010

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kanyon is a multi-purpose complex, metro stop is Levent.

    We were staying in Taksim area so we have to take the metro train from the main square, get down at Levent (not Levent 4, where we've mistakenly got down, the station next to Levent).

    There are two shopping malls here, Kanyon and Metro City which are beside each other. We first went to Kanyon. It's huge shopping complex, more high-end which houses many european brands, and a foodcourt on the upper level.

    We went there twice, upon arrival and before flying out, to buy some shirts and pants - my favorite shop is the Jack & Jones on the upper level. The tall tower houses a residential apartments and office towers.

    Kanyon holds 180 residential flats, 160 stores, 9 theater halls with a capacity of 1,600 spectators, and a parking facility for 2,300 vehicles. The shopping mall itself resembles a dramatic canyon in architecture and won the 2006 Cityscape Architectural Review Award in the "Commercial Built" category.

    The metro stop in Levent has a direct access to the mall complex.

    What to buy: signature brands, clothings, bags, etc.
