You haven’t really shopped unless you’ve shopped in Cevahir, Europe’s largest shopping mall. This is the shopping experience of a lifetime and should be on every traveler’s itinerary.
The Allure of Istanbul
Istanbul is everything a traveler dreams of. With some of the most exclusive hotel accommodations, a week in this beautiful ancient city isn’t enough time to really enjoy all Istanbul has to offer. Many travelers do favor Hotel Büyük Keban as their top choice of hotels. It’s bright, impeccably clean and modern with a subtle hint of the historical Turkish style that’s so charming and appealing. There has been a bit of remodeling recently that adds to its attraction. When travelers arrive at Attaturk Airport, they discover a wide variety of transportation, including a shuttle service to and from the airport. That’s convenience at its best.
