The importance of malls and shopping centers in Istanbul
Malls and commercial centers are among the important places in Istanbul. They not only provide a place to shop but also a place to meet friends, relax and escape from the heat or cold. In addition, malls usually have a food court where you can find a variety of different foods.
The difference between malls and popular markets
The European side of Istanbul is where most of the tourist attractions are located, as well as the more modern malls and the Asian side is generally less crowded and more relaxed, where traditional markets sell a variety of goods and malls in Istanbul tend to be large, air-conditioned and full of international brands.
They are usually located in the more affluent areas of the city and are popular with locals and tourists alike. Given these factors, it can be quite expensive, especially if you are looking to buy brand name items.
Popular markets in Istanbul are usually found on the streets or in small shops around the city where they sell a wide range of goods, from food to clothes to souvenirs, at prices much lower than what you might find in the mall.
Bargaining is a common practice in these markets, so be prepared to bargain!
