Istinye Park:

An impressive modern shopping center that only recently opened. All good brands to shop for anything you can think of from clothing to electronics plus a food court that reminded me of Harrods in London. There are fine and elegant details in every corner of this mall, ranging from the green flowerbeds outdoors to all the wooden bark that has been used in the flowerbeds indoors to create a contrast between nature and the construction of marble and glass and mirrors. Located in Balçova and Very convenient to get to because the Izmir Metro goes right to the mall at Fahrettin Altay stop.

Lots of food options as well although they often spread all over the mall in random places so you need to walk around to find your place of choice. And The central court which is larger than a tennis court and has an unsupported dome at least 30-40m high is worth seeing. There are lots of brand choices and it’s relatively cheap for Westerners but more expensive than average malls.


This mall is well laid out, and the natural light from the beautiful roof is wonderful. This mall is very clean and inviting. Great shopping center with lots of entertainment including an ice skating rink, and two large outdoor playing areas for children 4-12 making a great family shopping option.

This place is a shopper’s paradise. There is an unbelievable amount of choice of everything from international to local brands of clothing, homeware, and food. The location is on the outskirts of Izmir but convenient to get to with the IZBAN.

You can find everything your heart desires inside this enormous department store. There is a lot of space paired with a lot of diverse stores. On the top floor, you can find many stores to eat at. And on the other floors, there are stores from Nike, puma, Koton, and LC Waikiki.

I’m adding to the shops, which include a major supermarket, there are services such as a travel agency, hairdresser, car wash, atm machines, and an information desk.
