Take the streetcar between Taksim and Galata Tower (you must use a fare card because 'jetons' are not accepted as they are on funiculars or the metro). Window shopping is interesting here and there are different foods to sample. We bought a few gifts at shops near Galata Tower and prices were reasonable.

The more modern side of Istanbul, Beyoglu is a district with a large number of shops and interesting side streets to explore. Catch the tram to Kabatas then the Funicular up to Taksim Square. From here look out for a a smaller red tram and follow it to the street.

We stayed in Beyoglu for 5 nights exploring Istanbul from it centralized locale, for some this place might be a bit too busy, but we loved the buzz, there is tons of shops and cafe's to explore and you discover much, much more if you explore the hundreds of winding and meandering alley's off the main boulevard running through the...

Super busy part of Istanbul with lots of dining and shopping options. Beautiful architecture, easy access to major attractions. Lively part of the city.

We stayed in Cihangir and I wouldn't recommend any other part of Istanbul. Not more than 5-45 minutes walk from all major attractions or connecting points. Safe and quiet (if you're not on some major road, of course).

The Tourism part of Beyoglu is Istiklal Street where all the clubs and bars are stand. it is good street to walk around and feel the atmosphere of modern Istanbul.
