ANKARA: KAVAKLIDERE

On the southern side of Ankara, near to posh Çankaya, Kavaklıdere is another upmarket part of town albeit with some more ordinary shops, restaurants and cafes too.

This is not a place to come sightseeing although neat little Kuğulu (Swan) Parkı is a pleasant place to sit in the sun on a hot summer's day.

The main shopping street in Kavaklıdere is Tunalı Hilmi Caddesi which runs northeast from the park and the small Kanum Shopping Mall. Here you'll find a pleasing mix of chain and one-off stores as well as several inviting cafes including Cafe des Cafes which has been catering to weary shoppers for many a long year. 

For an even better choice of cafes head instead along Arjantin Caddesi which runs southeast past the Sheraton Hotel. Hotspots come and go with revolving-door rapidity here but a quick stroll uphill is bound to throw up something to draw you in.
