Today was another hot day so we decided to take a river cruise along the Bosphorus which gave a great view of the Old City (Eastern culture) and the New City (Western culture). The cruise took around 3hrs and after we found one of the vast numbers of cafe’s to have a bite to eat and a coffee.

We then made our way to Taksim Square which is considered to be the heart of the modern city of Istanbul. The term “modern city” in reality means there is Pizza Hut, H&M, Burger King etc.

The afternoon we all crashed out back at the apartment we were staying at following all the walking and the heat of the day.

The evening was yet another opportunity to experience the food of Istanbul. If ever you get the opportunity to visit this famous city you will certainly enjoy the variety of food there is on offer. You won’t be disappointed.
