Turkish ice cream, called dondurma, is known for its chewy, elastic texture and for being slow to melt (both a bonus for those who like to take a long time playing with their food). In addition to the usual combination of milk and sugar, this dessert gets its unique qualities from two extra ingredients: mastic and salep. The former is ...

    Hagia Sophia — an amazing piece of Byzantine architecture with an exceptionally rich journey from basilica to cathedral to mosque to a remarkable museum that it is today! The exterior is splendid for its contour and scale whereas the interior is wonderfully adorned by mosaics of all colors and shapes. A visit to Hagia Sophia allows for a profound cultural ...

    Simply Stunning! The Blue Mosque in Sultanahmet Square dominates the skyline and I found myself obsessed with its beauty. The inside is an architectural wonder as well. With the beautiful stained glass windows and the mosaics it is a "must see" in Istanbul.

    A trip to Istanbul would not be complete without visiting the Basilica cistern. Made famous in Dan Brown's book and featured in many movies and video games, this place is something out of fiction. Probably not the ideal stop for the claustrophobic among us.

    The historic areas of Sultanahmet south of the Golden Horn really deserve their world heritage designation. The mosques, churches, palaces and ruins here are almost too numerous to count.

    At the time I visited the Black Sea, it was towards the end of a tour and my exhausted, 13-year-old self was somewhat unimpressed. "It's the Black Sea!" my dad explained. "It's a body of water," I pointed out. Looking back, I should have been jumping with excitement too. We saw the sea from atop a beautiful, windy cliff, and ...

    This is the most random part of Istanbul's public-transport network, and to be honest, I was nerdy enough to make up some random excuse to ride it--it's not like it fits in really logically with major sightseeing. But you get to ride a little gondola across a gorge filled with trees--in the middle of the city! Talk about cheap thrills...
