I have never had such a good feeling in my soul as walking around Sultanahmet. It feels so good to be in the centre of all of that history. You cannot possibly take a bad picture there. The entire area is so alive and dripping with beauty

The Grand Bazaar and Spice Market need at least a full day to explore and practice your haggling skills. Also, go to the garment district between the two to see the fashion of the locals and get a feel for the amazing garment industry of Turkey.

Even this early in the season there were masses of tourists but the area is very attractively laid out and the flowers, particularly the tulips were a delight to see. The various sites are well signposted too.

You have to go to the Grand Bazaar, Turkish Hamaam(bath) and the Hookah bar here! Also the Basilica Cistern is within walking distance.

It's a place for tourist with lots of tourist attraction within; only a heartbeat away from the main attraction as well as Blue Mosque, Ayasophia, Spice Market and Topkapi Palace, it's just... amazing!
