A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
For shopping fun, head to Kapali Carsi or Istiklal Street. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Ortakoy, appreciate the extensive heritage of Sultanahmet District, delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

For more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Istanbul trip planner .

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In October in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 28°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
