Must visit is at night, this monument is the place to take a picture. The lights at the night make it look even more impressive

When in Istanbul it's really good to book Bosphorus boat excursion and to see this fantastic bridge connecting two continents.

A great structure connecting east and west. Often stays congested during the rush hours, so many locals prefer the Bosphorus Metro instead. It was a good experience for me.

How cool is it to cross between Asia and Europe via one huge suspension bridge. Did this by HOHO bus and the views looking back are stunning. Very photogenic, as is the signage for Asia and Europe. A must do whilst in Istanbul.

This is a beautiful bridge in a visually striking city. It is well worth looking at it from a distance, from up the river.

This bridge links Europe to Asia and I was lucky to get to see this bridge first hand it’s single span suspension bridge maybe slightly smaller than the Humber bridge however same type of style I guess

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
