Hi Guys, welcome to Travelzilla.Iam, this time around Leandro and I (Rodrigo) decided to go to Istanbul, after we spent a few days in the cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the UAE. We had an amazing time in Istanbul, and I feel that this is one of the world’s most fascinating places! BEFORE we move forward I’d like to thank the amazing TURKU NOMADS OF THE SILK ROAD for allowing me to use their incredible songs RUMELAJ and LESGI as part of this soundtrack. Please check them out:
This is the compilation of all our adventures in this amazing city! We have divided this into an 8 chapter series. Please check them out if you’d like to see smaller vlogs. Here we explore some of the city’s main attractions. We give you tips as to how to get from Ataturk Airport to Taksim Square in the cheapest possible way, talk about Istanbul’s history and stats, check in in the Conrad Istanbul Bosphorus, go to a Hamam or Turkish bath for the very first time and share this incredible experience with you and finally visit one of Istanbul’s main palaces the Çiragan, located at the Kempinski Hotel by the Bosphorus. There we had the pleasure of having an amazing New Year’s eve Dinner in one of the world’s best Ottoman Restaurants, the Tugra, where we had a feast! After our NYE celebrations we explore many other attractions such as the area of one of the world’s most exciting avenues, ISTIKLAL AVENUE where we try the DONDURMA, a type of TURKISH Ice Cream, which is served in a very unique way indeed. We explore the St. Joseph of Padua Church, the largest Catholic Church in the city, department stores, check out live musicians, try the SIMIT (Turkish style bread), explore HAGIA SOPHIA, The BLUE MOSQUE, the GRAND BAZAAR, THE SPICE BAZAAR, The area of EMINONU, The NEW MOSQUE, try some of the world’s best sweets at HAFIZ MUSTAFA 1864, MADO and ÇIGDEM.
