I might be considering going to Istanbul by mid-November
So i would like to know some info about touristic places ( other than islamic and historical places) there and shopping places also if there is beach there ?
Finally about night life there
is there discos etc..
If we are talking about non-islamic non-historic places that are touristic, there is always the Bosphorus and the many seafood restaurants alongside that might fit the bill, provided that it's not raining. There are quite some modern museums and/or art galleries. A walk along Uskudar or in Beyoglu back streets is safe and quite fun. Beykoz is very nice also. The night life is quite lively, and that could be considered touristic. And yes, there are many discos, although the season is getting a bit long for some of them, but on weekends they are crazy enough you won't notice. Some of the more exclusive discos/night clubs can be a bit steep though (you'll get the hint when you are about to walk inside, all those shiny porsches and whatnot). I do not recommend the beaches, it is getting a bit cold, although you might try your luck in Kilyos.
As Tankut mentioned nightlife is diverse in istanbul. Shopping ! Its a shopping paradise. Grand Bazaar, Shopping Malls like Akmerkez.... There are many options for you.
Hope you enjoy istanbul & Turkey....
Good luck and have fun.
