Istanbul, a captivating city, we flew to the busy city in October, a week long vacation.

The hotel was strategically placed in Taksim; 2 minutes to the bus stop, 30 seconds away from Taksim square.

A couple of bus tickets and we roamed the city, all the tourist attractions including Spice and Grand Bazaars, Suleymaniye Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Sultanahmet amongst many others.

The constant rain there brought us immense joy, as it uplifts our spirits, apposed to the scorching summer time in the UAE.

Aside from the awesome time visiting those places, walking for extended amounts of time under the rain, and eating from kiosks on the streets and exploring the alleys of Istanbul was the best thing in this trip.

Definitely we will visit again.
