Istanbul, Turkey Reviews
New to travelling, start from Turkey Jun 14, 2013
I will not write the details of individual places but its just meant to be a list of places and things to do that I did and I absolutely loved my experience.
Visit Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Roman Hippodrome,Rustem Pasha Mosque, Spice Bazaar and a must do bosphorus Cruise by boat. You can do all this in one day.
The next day do visit Yedikule Dungeons,City Walls, Chora Church, Pierre Loti Hill and Fener Orthodox Patriarchate, St.Sophia Museum, Basilica Cistern (Underground Water Palace), Million stone, Tomb of Sultan Mahmud and
ancient Ottoman cemetery, Cemberlitas (Burnt Column).
Spare a day for shopping and visiting Taksim square and Grand bazar which will obviously increase your cost of travelling.
Dont miss out on the heavenly Mediterranean food.
Also if you are interested in cultural activities get a ticket to belly dancing shows and Dervish Dance in Cultural center. Most of these places are walk able distances to each other but I recommend hiring a guide and most of them are very helpful and knowledgeable people as they are hired and regulated by official body.
