6 Things to Do in Istanbul

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!

What to buy :

Carpets and rug

Turkish Delight

Turkish tea and glasses

Blue Evil Eye of Turkey

Mosaic lamps



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!

What to capture :

Sunrises and sunsets

Views from the top

Food and drink
