This is not a definitive list of the ‘best’ visiting experiences in Istanbul, but a rough guide to the places I like to visit when I return to my home town. Bear in mind that Istanbul is divided by the Bosphorus Strait, between ‘the European side’ and ‘the Asian side’. I grew up on the Asian side (in the waterside suburb of Kadıköy). Most tourists stay on the European side, which is their loss.
