Nice place to for Bosphorus trip or entering historical centre. Take a balik sandwich for fair price - many locals do. there is selfservice so with little advice or intelligence you could have what you like.

The atmosphere at the pier is breathtaking! Be sure to try the treats at the carts (Corn, roasted chestnuts, various hot drinks and bagels). The underground market is a good place to visit too!

Istanbul is the historical city. A mix of West Europe, East Europe, Roman empire, Asia, Arab. you see and feel all culture by taking this boat tour nice view of city, bridges, masques, water, cultural homes and government buildings! one side Asia and other side Europe! so many activities and people! go by bus or train and take cruise!

I did not fancy the fish sandwich but it was the place with a lot of hustle and bustle and the boarding point for cruises of the Bosphorous. Definitely check out the prices and haggle.

i really loved this place since the first time my friend took me here, i loved the view,segulls,the crowd,and of course balık ekmek (fish sandwich). there are also long lines of men who loved fishing, such unusual view yet attracting.
