I never go to stay there, it is just on the way home, however I always like passing... People taking photos of the bull (or the cow or the goat, the monster, Godzilla, everyone gives a new nickname). All the local demonstrations start from there, police is usually around the corner, you are 5 mins from the market (carsi) 5... More

It is busy area similar to Eminonu/Karakoy/Beyoglu just without tourists. Nice cafés, restaurants, little shops, fresh juices bars, doner kebab. all fresh and much cheaper. reserve some time especially if you arrive to sabiha airport - there is good connection through Kadikoy.

A very busy and active area on Asian shore of Istanbul, more local concept, less historical things to see, but never the less a great place, with souks, Bazars, restaurants, you name it, worth spending at least 1/2 a day in the area.

We took a ferry from Eminonu on the European side to Kadikoy on the Asian side. What a wonderful surprise to see local culture, free of tourists, quite unlike the Sultanahmet area. The small streets parallel to the main street where the piers are are a hidden treasure teeming with fresh fish (red gills on display to prove freshness), fruits... More

As with other Istanbul neighbourhoods, the neighbourhood of Kadıköy has its own special atmosphere and Kadıköy market is just a tiny part of what makes this area special. Away from the market, there’s so much more to this area – much of it still waiting to reveal itself to us, but we abolutely loved the Asian part of Istanbul. Having... More

I do not think Boga Meydani is an inteersting site for tourists. It is so crowded and noisy. It is famous with it's bronze taurus that is why it is called the Taurus square.
