About Istanbul

The Turkish city is a traveller’s dream. A visit to the world-famous Blue Mosque is a must, along with Topkapi Palace and church-turned-mosque-turned-museum Hagia Sophia. Transport yourself to ancient times in the Grand Bazaar, walk through the fascinating Basilica Cistern, wander down Istiklal Avenue in the heart of the city, and take a river cruise down the Bosphorus. Rejuvenate your body at a local hammam or Turkish bath, sip on some divine Turkish coffee and feast on delicious food and baklava, before checking out the city’s thriving nightlife scene.
