"" ISTANBUL "" king_tedy's Profile


Ortakoy is one of the best area in the city. Actually you know this zone from postcards "mosque,bridge and Bosphorus". Which activities you can do here: Have a boat tour in Bosphorus, tasting Waffle and Kumpir, walk on costline, play backgammon while drinking tea against the sea, buying accessories, go to best night club Reina and more...
There is sometimes public concerts also, if you can catch it , i'm sure you'll have enjoy.

Princess Island

You can check the spring came That islands tours started... One of the reachness is these islands of Istanbul. There are 3 other islands but certainly i advice you this one.

If you are looking for a silence, nature, animals, sea and happiness, you should visit there. There are two main ways from island center to cover island. If you follow left way, you can see 8km. circle at island's hill ( by bicycle is more enjoyable ). In the forest you can have a break and breath to nature. Also that is free to take nicest sea, hill, tree photos...

There are restourants, bars, hotels in island center. Transporting to island is by seabus and boats.

Yildiz Grove

It is a little forest in the city. There is a imitation lake on the hill. You can feed ducks. The best time is may for visiting. You can follow tulip festival also.
There are Mansions and small local traditional restourants at the hill. You can order Turkish Gozleme... From some points you can catch nice bosphorus views...

Maiden Tower

There are many story about building it... This tower has a so cool appearance on the the sea. It has used for many different target in past, but we can say it is very nice restourant right now. There is a free shuttle from the port. I recomment this place for romantics...

Park Orman

This place builded in forest. But unfortunatelly, they don't open all year.
