Bustling & Vibrant Istanbul

Blue Mosque IstanbulI recently had my first visit to Istanbul and loved every minute of it. Not knowing what to expect I had the most amazing experience in this bustling & vibrant city. It has a very relaxed, friendly and safe atmosphere.  Just sit back with a Turkish coffee or apple tea & watch the world go by, whilst listening to the echoing sounds of the call to prayer creeping its way around the city’s skyline.

I took in the cultural sights of Topkapi Palace and many of the mosques, the Underground Cistern and sailed along the Bosphorus. I could have got lost for days in the Grand Bazaar shopping for local delights.  I even joined a belly dance class, which after experiencing all of the delicious local pastries & food, there was certainly plenty more to wobble.  I can’t wait to go back there again!

You can experience Istanbul on our Oasis Caravan trip or our Turkey & Syria Overland trips, but give yourself plenty of time, as there are heaps of things to see & do.
