Istanbul...i fell in love with it when we were travelling to Europe. We had our connecting flight to Paris from Ataturk Airport. The vibe ,the atmosphere there was nothing like that of Middle Eastern/Muslim country. There and then i decided to visit it on my next trip.
Next year we planned our family vacation to Istanbul. As my husband is not very fond of planning a vacation by himself so we bought a package from a famous travel agency. We booked a package of approximately 40k per person for flights and stay. Stay included daily buffet breakfast.
DAY OF THE TRAVEL
We took Go Air flight to Istanbul. The flight was early morning....and so after flight time of approximately 9 hrs we could still enjoy our evening there. After reaching there we were picked up by our agency people for hotel transfer. The route from the airport to the city is beautiful. Flowers , landscaping on each side of the road. We reached our hotel in about 40 mins. It was situated in the Sultanahmet which was hardly 10 mins walk from the Blue Mosque. Hotel was good with spacious rooms, friendly staff and nice location. After checking in we rested for a while and went out in the evening. Went for a walk in the area and had a hearty Turkish dinner.Me being vegetarian settled for salad with pita and hummus
