We’ve done a lot of travel around Turkey, but in this vlog we finally explore the things to do in Istanbul Asian side – Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia mainly – on our second to last day with Travel Talk Tours.
As far as the best things to do in Istanbul? The Blue Mosque is arguably the top thing to see in all of Turkey, at least in Istanbul anyway. The trouble at the moment is the restorations taking place, lots of the Blue Mosque was hidden away from our eyes and cameras sadly. Amazing to see, but sad that we didn’t properly get to experience the Blue Mosque properly.
Just a few minutes away is Hagia Sophia – a church and museum and it’s stunning. Such a beautiful building on the inside. So as it stands, our recommendation on the best thing to do in Istanbul is actually Hagia Sophia. It’s larger, older, more impressive and not as much scaffolding in your way.
Either way, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque are so close to each other if you’re deciding on what to do in Istanbul it’s worth visiting (on a week day and early!) both to appreciate the history of Turkey and what makes Istanbul so special.
Another epic few days exploring with Travel Talk Tours, the travel vlogs are slowly coming to a close on our tour and Turkey continues to keep us smiling!
Here’s the trip we’re taking with Travel Talk Tours around Turkey for 11 days —
