Make The Most Of Your Vacation In Istanbul

Home to stunning architecture, rich culture, and delicious food, there’s never a dull moment in Istanbul. Here’s how you can make the most of your vacation in this beautiful city

There’s a reason why Istanbul is on every traveller list. Its location, straddling the Bosphorus strait that separates Asia and Europe, means that it has always been important for its Silk Route and sea route connections. Today, the city of minarets is a buzzing metropolis, home to beautiful skylines, cultural experiences, and great food. Still need a good reason to visit Istanbul? We’ve got you covered.

Discover all things old and new on istiklal Caddesi

A trip to Istanbul would be incomplete without walking down istiklal Caddesi in BeyoÄŸlu. The boulevard was once called the Grand Rue de Pera and renamed for Independence (istiklal) in the early years of the Republic, capturing the essence of modernity and tradition that is evident in this locality. You’ll find up-to-the-minute fashion in grand 19th-century buildings, great street performances, and cool food in atmospheric cafes. Keep your money close to you as you wander this largely pedestrianised street.
