"Istanbul which is both a..." Turkey Favorite Tip by Thad_Koch

Turkey General: 526 reviews and 494 photos

Favorite thing: Istanbul which is both a European and exotic Eastern city with so much to see and do.
Standing between the Aya Sophia and the Blue Mosque in a beautiful park and hearing the call to prayers for the first time is a neat experience.

Fondest memory: The varied textures of the countryside, from Istanbul, to the seaside resort of Kusadasi, to the ruins of Ephesus, to the fields of sunflowers, to the mountain roads with the roadside stands of honey, to the exotic shops and small cafes which are everywhere.

Review Helpfulness: 1 out of 5 stars
