    Bosphorus Bridge

    Arnavutköy Mh., Beşiktaş/Istanbul, Turkey
    75 reviews

    If you want some bragging rights you might want to take a ride across the Bosphorus Bridge from the European side of Turkey over to the Asian side. You will be able to say you were on two continents. The Asian side of the city is quite different from the European side.

    Piyalepaşa Blv, Istanbul Turkey
    48 reviews

    Hip, slick and cool and yet culturally refined and somehow restrained, this neighborhood is just about as fun as it gets. Hubbly bubbly joints out the yin yang, live music, clubs, discos, hammams and cafes - what more could you want?

    Eski Galatasaray Adasi, Kurucesmel, Istanbul
    6 reviews

    In 2008 I was lucky enough to have dinner out on Suada (literally Water Island) when Time Out Magazine took all of us travel writers out for a seafood dinner on them. Suada is located on a barge a few hundred meters offshore in the Bosphorus in the neighborhood of Kurucesme. There's a small ferry that takes you out to ...

    No trip to see Istanbul would be complete without a few must stops, and the Grand Bazaar is just one of those places that has to be experienced. Got the best tasting apple tea, my only regret is that we did not purchase a barrel full! You will experience sensory overload. There is much to see, smell, taste, and touch, ...

    Vişnezade Mh., 34357 Istanbul, Turkey
    41 reviews

    Styled after Western Europe in Baroque architecture, stepping onto the grounds of Dolmabahçe Palace feels like you are leaving Istanbul. It is a stark contrast to Topkapi palace in Sultanahmet. This palace was the main administrative center from 1856 to 1922. If you have seen Topkapi it is important to see Dolmabahçe as well, contrasting the Golden period of the ...
