At the confluence of Asia and Europe, Istanbul, the capital of Turkey, enjoys the best of both worlds. Filled with many different and colurful neighborhoods which are great to naviagte and explore using the city's well-laid out network of Istanbul tram or on foot, Istanbul is a traveller's delight! Remnants of the Byzantine empire, traditional bazars with the smell of baklava in the air and quiet hamaams interwoven with trendy cafes and bars are the quintessential Turkish experience. Start with Sultan Ahmet square, the historic heart of Istanbul and home to The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia Museum and the Grand Bazar in close proximity. Walk around Taksim Square, go up the Galata Tower for a great view, get jacket potates in Ortakoy, sit in a cosy cafe in Balat and cruise across the Bosphorus to the Asian side of Istanbul are some of the other Istanbul experiences that must make it to your list!
