Mall of Istanbul, where are you?

On a recent visit to Istanbul, I saw a poster for the Mall of Istanbul. I asked about it at a large 5 star Taksim Square hotel. The woman with whom I spoke, hadn't heard of it.

My question is is it possible to get to this mall by public transportation? How far is it from Taksim Square?

Perhaps they meant Forum Istanbul Mall?

To get there from Taksim take the 32T (Cevatpaşa-Taksim) bus or take the M2 metro to Vezneciler then walk to Aksaray on the M1 to take the metro to Kartaltepe-Kocatepe stop. Exit the station and the mall is across you.

Hi XchocolateX,

There are more than one hundred shopping malls in Istanbul and it is really very difficult for local people to keep the track of them.

to get to the Mall of Istanbul from Taksim:

1. Take the finicular from Taksim to Kabataş

2. Take T1 tram from Kabataş to Bağcılar (terminal station)

3. Change over to the metro heading towards Olimpiyat (via Kirazlı- Başakşehir)

4. Get off the train at Ikitelli station and follow the signs for the mall

Hope this helps,

Borus

Borus, that's a decent hike to get to get to MOI. If you are adamant to get there and like shopping it's worth it. Also would be a good place to go with kids as it has an inbuilt theme park of sorts.
