Exhibition : From Konstantiniyye to Istanbul

Istanbul

My Recommendation Tip

People coming to Istanbul usually want to see the major sights of ancient history during their stay in this beautiful city. Who wouldn’t want to see a 1500-year-old Byzantine church or an Ottoman mosque that has been active for over 400 years? While wandering around in the old town with my guests, we talk about history, culture, fashion, architecture, people and, of course, city legends. This wide range of topics gives context to so many of the city’s amazing sights. I like to help travelers get an idea about today‘s cosmopolitan city along with its background, which allows them to form a picture of Istanbul in their mind to take them back their home.

Shopping Fest starts in Istanbul

Istanbul

My Recommendation Tip

Istanbul is ready for shopping! Istanbul, one of the most dynamic cities in the world, will become the global capital of shopping and entertainment during the Istanbul Shopping Fest which runs from March 18 to April 26, 2011. Actually this beautiful city has been a heaven for shoppers since Roman period. It houses the largest and oldest covered bazaar of the world where you can purchase any sorts of goods from jewelry to handmade carpets, antiquities, glass wares, colorful ceramics, silk products and leather fabrics. It attracts between 250,000 and 400,000 people daily. It will be great experience for the travellers to stroll through the colorful streets of Grand Bazaar and shop in a traditional and oriental style shopping venue. You can visit the bazaar between 9AM to 7PM and closed on Sundays.

If you are a foodie, you should exactly visit the Spice Bazaar to enjoy all different tastes of the Turkish delight (it is a sweet made of starch and honey and flavoured with nuts, rose, lemon etc), dried fruits, nuts, Turkish coffee and baklava (traditional Turkish desert).
