How to optimally travel for shopping in Antalya

Updated: 2 months ago

The choice of goods in Northern Cyprus often leaves much to be desired, and for a more productive shopping experience, it makes sense to travel to the neighboring country.

We've already talked about how you can shop in Istanbul in just one day. If this Turkish metropolis doesn't suit you due to its size and noise, you can make purchases in Antalya—a more compact and nearby city with a 40-minute flight. We'll tell you where it's best to go right from the airport.

The most optimal route is to the Agora shopping center: it's only 5 kilometers from the airport, and there you'll find Metro and the beloved IKEA stores. In the shopping mall itself, there are hundreds of stores with various brands, including electronics stores.

Right next to Agora, literally a kilometer closer to the airport, there is also the Mall of Antalya, where the choice of stores and brands is no less, and there is also the Deepo outlet.

About one and a half kilometers from Agora in the opposite direction, away from the airport, there is another Decathlon store. And right next to it is the textile mall Güney Antalya.

If there is enough time before the flight (early arrival and late departure), you can delve into the city, but not in the very center, but in the part closer to the airport.

First of all, this is Terra City—a large mall with many branded stores in the southeast part of the city. It is notable not only for a good selection but also for the Decathlon store, loved by many.

A kilometer from TerraCity are two smaller shopping centers—Shemall and Laura Avm. All three shopping centers are within a half-hour taxi ride.
