How to start my journey....Visit to Istanbul was my official trip. So, of course I was very excited to be there.My Hotel Arrangements & Tickets were already done by my company. So my main concern was to cover Istanbul during my stay.My stay was in the Asian part because of my company. It was Rescate Hotel. The hotel was really good & comfortable. Hotel Staff was quite responsive. So I can recommend for stay in this hotel.

I got only three days to cover Istanbul. So my first day plan includes to cover the Historical Places, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern. Grand Bazaar & Spice Bazaar were too included in my list. 
So I took taxi from Hotel & went to Uskudar Dock, Turkish Ferry. It cost me around 30 lira. I took a boat to Eminonu Dock which cost only 4 lira. It was awesome view through boat journey, hardly took 20 min for me to reach. My next transport was Tram to Sultanamphet. Here I visited Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia & Basilica Cistern. These all places are nearby. One can visit to Topkapi museum & Hippodrome as well, as I missed it.
Than by walking I reached to Grand Bazaar, one can view different shops, colourful things in sideways.  I purchased few gifts for family & friends. I got a chance to visit one of the oldest University of Istanbul as well. Than I took Tram to visit Spice Bazaar .I purchased Turkish Delights, baklava pastries & few more items from there. I came back to hotel in same way. 
On my second day, I went by Taxi to Kadikoy Dock, took boat for Besiktas Ferry. I went to famous Taksim Street & Dolmabache Palace, reign of famous Ottoman Empire. Photo of Special Days of Istanbul Visit 2/3 by Nidhi Photo of Special Days of Istanbul Visit 3/3 by Nidhi One day I visited to Buyaka Mall & Bagdat Avenue, this is one of the famous shopping street of Istanbul. 

Istanbul, amazing place with the combination of half European & half Asian culture. Prime spot - Bosphorus Bridge, which separates Europe & Asia. Beautiful City with lots of historical background, splendid views of the city. People are amazing ready to help anytime, that was really sweet to get it experience.
