If you are a shopping lover (like my wife) you need to check the Oasis Shopping Center. It is not only to shop in the modern shopping mall, but to establish a comparison base price for the similar items you are going to buy in the “wild” markets later. The Oasis is your typical shopping mall with many clothes and shoes stores, plus some cosmetics, beauty salon products, art galleries, gift shops, toys, and other stores. I think there is also the Apple store for those who forgot/lost their precious gadgets /attachments. Oasis will also offer some restaurants, coffee/tea bars ~ in your typical shopping mall style.
The best way to visit Oasis is by taking a dolmus (minibus) from Otogari (the bus station). Just ask any driver about Oasis Shopping and they will direct you to a proper minibus. You pay driver, and (like us) after a few stops ask the driver: Oasis shopping?, to remind him to drop you off. From bus station it is 10-15 minutes drive to shopping center. It costs 2 ½ lira (one way) and you will see/pass the amphitheatre on your way to the mall.
Coming back, there is pedestrian overpass over a busy highway onto the east bound of the dolmus stop (back to the Otogari/bus station). However, it is all downhill from there. For example, it is easy (just 5 minutes) walk (southeast) from the shopping mall to the ruins of the Myndus Gate. From there you’ll see Marina and castle serving as the beacon for an easy walk down to Marina.
