"Best guide possible" Information Tip by canistanbul
Information, Istanbul: 29 reviews and 33 photos
Favorite thing: Ok so istanbul is so full of stuff to do, and its quite hard to keep on top of things, but I found this magazine called Cornucopia. It offers a fresh view on turkey and istanbul and all the best things to do. For example it has articles on the classic sites: Hagia Sophia, Ortakoy, Blue Mosque, Rustem Pasa Mosque, and the nicest restaurants like Ciya in Kadikoy and Asitane, but it also has intelligent writing about these places and interesting articles about the history of the city. So my tip to anyone travelling to turkey, or planning a trip there, is to pick up a copy. The website is really useful as well: www.cornucopia.net!
Just one example: they told me about how in Kandilli on the Bosphorpus you can find the best Yoghurt shops, and in Cengelkoy there are really delicious cucumbers to be bought... Its hard to know about these things before you go, and it makes it possible to discover the best things about the city.
