Excellent planning for tourists in mind. Seamless travel modes worked like magic!
But at night one felt a little spooky with very few people outdoors.

We started our trip with the Blue Mosque at 10AM. Unfortunately it was prayer time so there were huge crowds and we had to go in a separate queue from the people who went to pray. The Mosque was very beautiful from inside as well as outside. It was so peaceful to be there even with all the crowds.
Then we went to Hagia Sofia ...but there was a 500 meter long queue for the tickets and we had less time, so we skipped it. Then we saw the Cisterns which was a unique experience.
Must visit the SultanAhmet square.

There was nothing that I didn't like - Istanbul is currently one of my favourite City's. The Turks are really friendly and even the ones trying to sell you stuff only hassle you half heartedly. Check out the Grand and Spice Bazaars, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, well, the list goes on and on and on!!!
