To the Ladies Only floor

To the 'Ladies Only' floor

This glass elevator goes to the Ladies Only floor, which has a high “wall” topped by glass for privacy.

I didn’t go up there as I didn’t want to visit it by myself, and obviously my husband couldn’t accompany me. I understand there are clothing and beauty care shops on that floor and is a place where women can take off their abayas.

I love all of these shiny details ~V~

So what do ladies wear under their abayas - jeans ?? All so strange ! I agree with the other comments - there is a coldness - so different from Turkey and other Islamic countries - maybe it's because it's "upscale" ? BTW - cool shot - neat lines and colours V

I totally agree with Marissa. I could not live there.

Gorgeous interior shot Helen! As usual, the lighting is superb! V
A Ladies Only floor makes me feel a bit uncomfortable...

I keep on following your interesting documentary galleries based on your accurate pictures and I'm trapped between two minds. From a certain point of view your experience is surely enriching, like all experiences, on the other side I perceive a feeling of terrible coldness, in spite of the hot weather and usual temperatures. I think it's one of the last places I'd visit in the world. Thank you for your precious and objective information

A well exposed interior shot with lots of details.
