Where to go in Istanbul



Here are some recommendations on where to go if you are in Turkey - Istanbul, my brother is there now, so this post is dedicated to him....




Aya Sophia or Hagia Sophia - a church turned mosque, also pass by the blue mosque , they are all next to each other


 

Topkapi, a place you don't want to miss, I personally loved it, you will see how they lived cooked and dressed 600 years ago 
Ohh yah and have a turkish coffee there, it was the best
we had it inside the palace in a tiny cafe facing the garden. Dad loves their tea
try it, any where you want, mo ela hnak

I remember having the best burger in my life in Park Hyatt Hotel, so if you want one, pass by the hotel at Nisantasi (pronounced Nishantshi street)
 
 
KoseBasi - source
 
Nisantasi is where all the boutiques and stores are, so if you don't want to eat a burger and want to have Kibab, then in front of the hotel there is a nice restaurant that is called kosebasi
 
 
Shop at Nisantasi street, efatr kilmokan
 
 
 




Dolmabahçe Palace, is the other palace the sultans moved to afterward, I didn't enjoy it as much as Topkapi. but if you are interested you could go visit click here for more images of our visit
 


If you mentioned that the weather is hot now then its not a good idea to go visit the Bazzar
once it gets cooler you will enjoy it more
I know you might not need anything from there, but its worth visiting, esma re7t el Bazzar
 
 
 
 
A place to eat -  Limonata in the top floor of City's Nisantasi Mall.  I loved the decor
Appetizers a7la shay
6ab3an el mall lo3a, ma t9adig ena hal ma63am fee
 
they have cinema theaters in there if you want to see a movie
 
(Note: notice this is in Nisantasi street also, so if you happen to be there visit the restaurant)
 
 
 
Istinya Park - source

Enjoy, and hope you discover other exciting stuff to do in Instanbul and share it with us
