Although things to do in Istanbul may seem expensive, it is possible to enjoy the city for free! Because some beauties in the world may not actually need a high budget.
See Cihangir Neighborhood
Located in the Beyoglu region, Cihangir is among the places to visit for those who want to watch the French architecture. You can probably come across modern Istanbul practicing their religious rituals on the streets before noon.
Make sure to stop by the Spice Bazaar
Among the dozens of bazaars worth seeing, the 400-year-old Spice Bazaar in Eminonu is a must-see. While walking through its colorful corridors and smelling thousands of exotic scents, you will be surprised how the Bazaar reflects the ethnic structure of the city with spices from the west of Europe and the east of Asia.
Galata Bridge, which was built in 1994 and replaced the other 4 bridges on the Golden Horn, symbolizes 16 centuries of Byzantine and Turkish history. Stand on the bridge and watch the fishermen catch their catch from sunrise to sunset.
Islands Must Visit
If you are tired of the hustle and bustle of the city, you can escape with a day trip to one of the 9 Princes’ Islands in the southeast of the Sea of Marmara. You can use your preference for Heybeliada. This small island has small beaches and green mountainous terrain.
For Something in Ortakoy
If you want to be in the heart of Istanbul, where life is alive, after a long day of discovery, look no further than Ortakoy. If the night is cold and windy, the weather makes many cool nightclubs even more attractive. Although the entrance to the world-famous Anjelique is free, we would like to remind you that the drinks are expensive.
