Start the day with a pick up from your accommodation in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle. Then we’ll head over to vibrant Karakoy, before heading to Asia, where we’ll sample a filling Turkish breakfast. Then you’ll board a ferry and head to Kadikoy. This part of Turkey is considered part of Asia and is home to a number of popular local haunts. Once you disembark, you’ll head to the Kadikoy Fruit Market and wander around the aisles. Feel free to buy some local produce and ask your friendly Trip Guru for some recommendations. Next, you’ll head to Moda Promenade, the cultural center of Kadikoy that is littered with a multitude of cafes, shops, and more. You’ll then head to Uskudar, a sprawling residential area, and have lunch at a famous traditional Turkish restaurant, Kanaat Lokantasi. After sampling some delicious Turkish fare, you’ll make your way to Camlica Mosque. Completed in 2019 after six years of construction, this huge mosque is the largest mosque in Turkey. It can fit well over 25,000 people at a time and is a favorite place of worship for the locals. Explore the large building and take in the beautiful design and architecture before heading to Otagtepe Park. This is another popular spot where locals spend their days in. Stroll around the picturesque area, taking photos of the beautiful grounds. The last stop of the day is Kanlica, a neighborhood popular for its yogurt snack which is sprinkled with caster sugar and sold in many cafes in the area. Sample this renowned snack before making your way back to your accommodations.
