Straddling both Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Straight, Istanbul is a major city in the middle east that is quite unlike any other. Embracing both its European and Asian Cultures, you’ll find it to be one of the most fascinating and contrasting cities you’ll ever visit.

Hagia Sophia is considered one of the most stunning structures ever built. Formerly a church and mosque, it is now one of the most visited museums in the world. Head to the Grand Bazaar, an epic shopping experience with more than 5,000 shops covering 60 streets. A land where old meets new and history meets the future, you can view the city from Galata Tower. Check out the famous Blue Mosque for the traditional, then hop on a streetcar to see the modern and take a trip through the clubs, boutiques and cafes of Istiklal Avenue.

This city is a magical merger of East and West, and locals have no problem melding tradition and modernity in their everyday lives. With cuisine and nightlife as diverse as its buildings and heritage, no two trips to Turkey are ever the same.
