Istanbul is calling

The ancient city of Istanbul, subject of many novels and poems, is set to be a shopping capital between July 1 and 31. The Istanbul Shopping Fest will be offering a one-of-a-kind shopping and living experience with sales and promotional offers during the most beautiful time of year in the city.

Fashion is not an industry that revolves solely around clothing. Accessories, jewellery and shoes also play a key part. Everyone likes to revamp their image every now and then, but this usually requires time and effort. You need shopping venues where you can find everything in one place. We propose a city and country for fast and enjoyable shopping: Istanbul, Turkey. The city is a centre not only for fashion brands and clothing, but also luxury fabrics, carpets, rugs, and prized jewellery. Moreover, all of these items have been produced and sold here for centuries. Turkey – and especially Istanbul – invites you to experience the pleasure of shopping at bazaars and shopping malls, offering authentic items in one place, as well as clothing collections that are acclaimed by the world’s fashion authorities.

The city’s historic bazaars and world-class, popular and modern shopping centres offer the world’s most luxurious brands alongside stores featuring Turkish labels, which have recently risen to global success. Once in Turkey, make the most of both shopping opportunities. If you happen to be in Istanbul during the shopping festival, do not miss out. Istanbul, one of the most enchanting cities of Europe, is playing host to the world’s most tempting shopping festival for the sixth time. Between July 1 and 31, Istanbul Shopping Fest will present the opportunity of a lifetime for those wishing to combine shopping fun with an unforgettable vacation. Enjoy up to 70 per cent discounts on global brands and savour the culture and entertainment in the city’s historic feel during the Istanbul Shopping Fest.

Istanbul is synonymous with history, culture, shopping, and entertainment...
