‘East meets West in Istanbul’ they always say, but it’s a maxim that rings true. Divided by the Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul is where the continents of Europe and Asia meet, making this the ultimate confluence of culture, design, fashion, architecture, cuisine, religion and tradition with a heritage stretching far back into the mists of time.

With a host of incredible historical landmarks to gawp at, Istanbul gives visitors more than enough to keep busy during the frenetic daylight hours. But at night the city comes alive, relishing its new-found energy and vitality. Locals are eager to see and be seen, giving rise to more galleries, restaurants, bars and clubs than ever. So when you’re tired of exploring the Ottoman treasures that are everywhere to be found, and you’ve filled your camera with grand images that speak to the city’s rich history, get out there and explore the intoxicating nightlife of Istanbul too!

It’s no wonder Istanbul has been named the World’s Top Travel Destination. How’d you like to see it for yourself? Click here to see our range of Turkey tours.
