The poetic city and more...

There is so much to write about the city I was born in. And sometimes you realise words don't suffice to express how you feel. Istanbul is like a poem which you can't tell where it begins or ends. Every street you stroll, every corner you turn, is like a new verse to it. Although I have an extensive Istanbul page, I decided to create some brief pages to fill some gaps in Istanbul area and share my experience with more VT members. Here you can find general tips and useful information to enjoy your stay in Istanbul. Things to do, nightlife, shopping and restaurant reviews are all waiting for you to check at my ISTANBUL page. I hope you enjoy my pages as well as the poetic Istanbul...

City of unforgettable sunsets

The sunsets of Istanbul are not to be missed. You can also enjoy fishing while you enjoy the beautiful sunsets just like me.

City for photography

    Murat, thank you for some great tips and photos. I visited Istanbul many years ago. I still remember the Topkapi and the great museums. I shall have to visit again! One point you made, and i found it to be so beautifully true is how essential hospitality is. What a beautiful tradition!
