Istanbul

Our scrapbook notes about Istanbul

Istanbul is one of the most touristy places in Turkey, and culturally very different to similar tourist cities in Europe. The city is split between Asia and Europe meaning you can see the Eastern influences in the culture, religion and architecture. A beautiful city with friendly people, respect the religion, which is open for all to explore and learn more about. Istanbul is not a cheap city compared to it's Eastern European neighbours, but still definitely a backpacker attraction.
