The districts of Levent, Etiler and Ulus make up the ‘New’ Istanbul. This area has developed into the city’s central business and financial district and many skyscrapers crowd the area, including the tallest skyscraper in Turkey - the Is Bankasi Tower.
Interestingly, Levent and Etiler are also host to some of the city’s top bars and nightclubs, particularly during the winter months.
The area is well connected with the rest of the city by metro, bus and metrobus.
