Pass the time with a heady visit to the amazing Grand Bazaar where everything is up for sale from gold jewellery to textiles, carpets, ceramics and spices galore. To pick up the best bargains, remember to haggle for the best price – all an authentic part of the holiday experience.
After shopping, take a stroll across the beautiful Galata Bridge, relax and enjoy the scenic views. For something a little different, have an authentic Turkish experience and slip into a Turkish bath at the Cagaloglu Baths. Istanbul is known as a city to see and to be seen in. By night, the Basilica Cistern is a magical sight to behold and the evening is also a great time to socialise in many stylish bars, cafes and restaurants.
Turkish cuisine is mouth-watering - it’s a taste-bud tantalising mixture of influences from Asian, Armenian and Mediterranean cultures. Be sure to indulge in these Turkish gastronomic delights during your yacht charter vacation.
During your visit, it’s worth remembering that Turkey is a Muslim country so do dress appropriately depending on your location. Beach wear is fine for lounging on your sundeck or unwinding on the beaches, but do cover up when visiting mosques or historical places of interest. Remember to dress properly in local restaurants, cafes and when out and about shopping too. If you have any doubts about what to wear, ask your friendly yacht charter captain or a crew member.
