It is the world's only city that straddles two continents, Asia and Europe.The Bosphorus Strait passes through the city, and the pillars of the city's many domed mosques dot the skyline, creating a very breath-taking sight. Consider this your next Wishlist vacation if you've not already. You will still not be let disappointed!

Togkapi Palace

Togkapi Palace was once the residence of multiple Turkish Sultans and their wives, so it's no surprise that it has its own Harem! Prepare to be whisked away to a world of luxury, as these walls conceal a wealth of hidden apartments with vibrantly coloured tiles. Bring your camera because there is a stunning moment around every corner in this place! As you exit your brief refuge in the Harem after booking your cheap flights to Istanbul, you'll be greeted with some stunning views of the Bosphorus. There is a cafe here, but the view is not cheap.

Blue Mosque

Just across the Byzantine Hippodrome from Hagia Sophia is the Sultan Ahmet Mosque, also known as the Blue Mosque. It is surrounded by six pillars and located in a serene garden.In and of itself, the interior design is a work of art. Because this is a place of worship, it is closed to guests during times of prayer, so prepare ahead. Visitors must dress suitably and women must cover their shoulders and heads. If your dress is considered unsuitable, you will be forced to wear a rather un-appealing'scrub' style long skirt. You must also take off your shoes and keep them on you the entire time you are here.

Basilica Cistern

During the Byzantium period, the Basilica Cistern was built to collect water for the Grand Palace and the city. It's underground and pleasantly cold, making it a great respite from the midday sun! It has an unearthly feel thanks to the numerous hand-carved columns. The Medusa's head, according to legend, is weeping for the religion that was lost to a shattered Empire. This one-of-a-kind tourist attraction is definitely worth seeing.

The Grand Bazaar

Thousands of kiosks sell anything from a lucky eye to jewellery, ceramics, ‘spot the tourist' Fez, and, of course, fake handbags!Everyone will be vying for your Lira here, so be ready to haggle. There are several cafés selling traditional Turkish tea and coffee (if you can locate them!) if you don't feel like shopping or just want to take a rest.

Galata Bridge & Tower

The Galata Bridge provides some of the best views of the Bosphorus. Seagulls keep a look out for a lucky catch as fishermen cast their fishing rods over both sides in the hopes of snagging a lucky fish! Locals and tourists alike frequent this bridge, which has a bustling atmosphere at all hours of the day. The eateries downstairs sell fresh seafood, and you may dine with amazing views of the Galata Tower. Climb to the top of the tower at sunset for a spectacular view of Istanbul.

Turkish Delight

Turkish delight, traditional Kebab, Raki, fresh pomegranate juice, and Turkish ice cream are just a few of the wonderful gastronomic delights on offer. There isn't a street in Istanbul that doesn't have an eatery, fashionable cafe, or restaurant, so if you're a foodie, the world is your oyster!
