The oldest favorite mall of Istanbul, Cevahir is increasing its popularity day by day. Cevahir is among the most visited shopping centers in Istanbul and the location adds a lot to this feature.

Beylikdüzü, which exploited the advantage of the population slide to the west, became a prominent area for many people. The area is ready for shopping addicts with its new and gigantic shopping center which built on the area of one of the oldest thematic parks in Istanbul, Tatilya. Marmara Park shopping center is meeting all the demands from that populated area. You can reach this center not just from Beylikdüzü but from all sides of Istanbul. But the best option is of course Metrobus.
Kartal county is one of the areas that lack the shopping centers most. And İstmarina project is built in order to meet that lack with a half-open-air concept. You can reach that center by buses that pass from Kartal coast. If you want to come from outer areas of Kartalü you can just take Kadiköy – Tavşantepe metro and get off at Kartal station. You need to get minibus or bus lines in order to get there after the metro.
Özdilekpark Istanbul is built within the Büyükdere Caddesi which is the skyscraper and big business complex center of Istanbul.

Istinye Park is another center that appeals to the vanity fair and away from railway transportation options. It is a place that mostly visited by famous persons such as football players, artists, and movie stars every day. When you visit that place, it is most likely that you will encounter with a famous person. So, don’t be surprised. Since it is really big and appeals to the vanity fair, the best way to get there is a private car but you can also use public transportation too.

The Trump name has a special bond with the USA President Donald Trump. Both of the twin towers are fully invested and built by Donald J. Trump.
