Meeting place of the east and west, Istanbul is one of the few cities in the world that has carried its march to modernity and yet closely preserved its history. A trip to the city is incomplete without a visit to either its Grand Bazaar or the famous Sophia Hague that is a symbol of secularity in its own right. The people are warm, and hospitable; don’t be surprised to be invited by locals for fresh Turkish coffee and endless chatter about the world and its affairs and more.
Gourmands are never disappointed in Turkey. With cuisine as rich as its history and culture, there is so much to explore from its famous kebabs, flavoursome mezze and freshly caught fish, Turkey is haven for all food lovers.
