Things you should definitely not miss when you are in Istanbul

Now, when a foreigner comes to Istanbul for the first time (like everywhere else) he/she would like to have first-hand information from a local as to what to do in this giant city. Having lived in Istanbul for over a decade we could suggest following:

Things you should definitely not miss when you are Istanbul

1) Visit the Hagia Sophia Museum, Blue Mosque, Topkapı Palace, Suleymaniye Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Yıldız Palace, Chora Church and other historical sites
2) Go on a ferry tour along the Bosphorus
3) Go to Pierre Loti to watch beautiful sceneries of Istanbul,
4) Climb the Galata Tower to see splendid views
5) Spend some time in famous Turkish baths
6) Visit the Princess islands
7) Visit Kadıköy and see Bağdat Caddesi (Street), the shops and all
8) Have fish (in a reputable decent restaurant) by the Bosphorus or Kumkapı.
9) Try fish & bread at Eminönü
10) Go round the Spice Bazaar and definitely the Grand Bazaar

Moreover, if you would like enjoy the evening out in a club or bar one of the main centers we could suggest would be TAKSIM and BEYOGLU area. However like is the case with many mega towns you should be careful with your money (on you) and passport and everything. It would also be recommendable that you choose a reputable place such as HAYAL KAHVESI (where you can enjoy very nice live music etc.)

Well, we hope you enjoy your time in Istanbul.
