What can't you miss when you are in Istanbul? Here's 6 things that you should really consider doing... let's read through and tell me what you'd like to do most?
There are lots of bazaars around the city centre and you could possibly find everything from snacks to souvenirs. These bazaars are like a massive maze to me so I literally got lost when I was there, especially in Grand Bazaar. If you know how to make a bargain, you would save a lot of money, but if you don't, just leave, I am sure you will be able to find the best deal somewhere else as most of the shops sell the same things!
在市中心裡有著數之不盡的市集，你可以在裡面找到所有你想要的紀念品。這裡的市集都大到好像一個永遠出不去的迷宮一樣⋯⋯ 尤其是在Grand Bazaar 大巴扎裡面，真的很容易就迷路了。如果你會講價的話，相信你會省到不少錢的，但是即使你不會，再去找下一家就可以了，因為那裡大部分的店都是買著類似的東西喔！
What to buy 買買買:
Carpets and rug 地毯
Turkish Delight 土耳其軟糖
Turkish tea and glasses 土耳其茶和茶杯
Blue Evil Eye of Turkey 土耳其藍色邪眼
Mosaic lamps 馬賽克燈
People take pictures for a reason. And I take picture because I love to keep my memories and make the moments frozen. Remember, try to spot something from an unusual perspectives and you could probably get some amazing shots!

When you are visiting a new place, you are one step away to get to know their own culture. Before I came to Istanbul, I thought Kebab was the only Turkish food on earth... haha! I tried different lots of dishes when I was here and I literally liked everything I had. I miss their food so much.
