I’ve just arrived back home from a very short trip to one of my favourite city Istanbul. This wasn’t my first visit, actually it was my 3rd and even though I know every place in this city, I discovered new and amazing places in this visit. Unfortunately, it wasn’t all fun. I went with my aunt and grandmother to buy furniture for the apartment we’ve just purchased 2 months ago in Akbati Residence. It was a very tiring trip but in the same time, we had so much fun.
Now, let’s talk about Istanbul in the morning. What are the places that you can enjoy in the morning. Well, my favourite place is Sultan Ahmet area where you spend your entire day exploring the area. You can go to The Blue Mosque, Aaya Sofia, Topkabi Palace, Basilica Cistern, The Grand Bazaar, The Masry Bazaar (make sure to buy Turkish coffee from Mehmet Afendi), eat in their famous restaurants, Khorasani is one of the best restaurants which I’ve tried 2 years ago and wrote about it on the blog.
Also you can go to Istiklal road and enjoy walking their, feeding the pigeons and buying some fresh flowers from the sellers in the streets. Enjoy a cup of coffee in one of their lovely cafes or a cup of tea=chay.
You can also enjoy shopping in their huge malls such as; Historia Mall, Zorlu Centre, Mall of Istanbul, Akmerkiz, Kanyon Mall and Trump Tower Mall. I loved Zorlu and Mall of Istanbul a lot.
