Istanbul offers amazing shopping, from antique shops and designer boutiques to modern malls and ancient markets. Perhaps the most famous place in the city to shop is the Grand Bazar, with 60 streets that contain no less than 5 000 shops, 60 restaurants, 18 fountains, 12 mosques, and even a school. One of the world’s largest covered bazaars, it is 500 years old and known for its carpets, leather, ceramics, souvenirs and jewelry. For the likes of Prada and Louis Vuitton, head to the exclusive Nişantaşı Street and take a wander around the Teşvikiye neighborhood nearby for small restaurants, cafés, boutiques, and bars. Bebek has plenty of clothing boutiques, while the area around the Galata Tower is also worth a visit for cool local designers – on Serdar-ı Ekrem Street with its cobblestone paths and neoclassical facades, you’ll discover design shops and boutiques with clothing and antiques. If you’re looking for a mall, try Kanyon or Zorlu Center, which has the city’s only official Apple Store as well as Crate & Barrel, the Beymen department store, Cos, and Eataly.
