Istanbul Guide

It's not only the fact that Istanbul is split over two continents that makes this enormous city unique. This magic mix of East and West can be seen in every part of life in Istanbul; from the nightlife and music to the fantastic food and incredible art. Locals are famous for their hospitality, their generosity and their love of their city.

One of the most beautiful skylines in the world is made up of minarets and spires, tea gardens and bazars, and around every corner lies another extraordinary cultural experiences. The Bosphorus divides the Asian from the European half of the city. Ferry boats run back and forth across the water until late, and give some of the most wonderful views of Istanbul.

How many opportunities do you get to walk half naked round ancient buildings? In Istanbul you have the perfect excuse in one of the city's many Hamams. So after a long day of mosques and haggling in the bazars, strip off and get steamy in the soap suds in the Turkish baths.
