I guess if you're short on time, you have to plan these things and get the most out of your two, four or six hours but if you have the luxury of not needing to be somewhere else tomorrow, then hop on any of the boats at the quay-side and just relax as you get transported not just to Asia or the Black Sea, but back about 100 years. These boats are magical, and everything you see from them seems to sparkle as you pass. You don't need to be going somewhere, just take in the view before you, sip the tea that's just been poured for you, listen to the musicians playing in the background and then start feeling sad that you're not at work. The work ethic got me again after five days - I had the flight booked so couldn't delay - but if someone challenged me to pass a month doing nothing, I can't think of any better location than the Bosphorus.
