It is full of beggars and the prices of the products are higher than any other place. Not recommended at all it has the same shop as any other place so I think it's a waste of time.

From the architectural view point the city offer much more. This is the nerve center, there are beatiful shops and clubs. Easly to be reached with the funicular.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
