this place is amazing, delicious fish sandwiches, and the area is full of life. Also there you can find sweets nearby, its by the sea ofcourse, so easy to reach. if you don't visit it, then you missed a great part of Istanbul.

Take a boat trip to Bosphorus, Kadikoy, Uskudar or Prince Islands - the view of Bosphorus is absolutely amazing. There will be tens of seagulls chasing the boat, waiting to be fed by YOU, the Human.
