When you take the country of Turkey, Istanbul is not only the capital city, but it is also the largest city as well. In addition to these two things, it is also one among the five largest metropolitan areas in the world. Another special thing about Istanbul is that it joins the two continents of Asia and Europe. If you are planning for two days of Istanbul tour, you can plan for the following things:
Take a visit to the Bosporus: Bosporus is nothing, but the strait linking the Black sea and the Sea of Marmara. It also separates the European and Asian Turkey. When you can take a ship to view the seaside view of the city, it will be a trip worth to remember for the lifetime. Even the local people take these ships, which is denoted as ferry rides to reach from one side to the other. It is just a 15-minute ride and commuter boats are operated once in every half an hour. If you wish for a photo shoot during this Istanbul tour or if you wish to see different parts of the city, it is a good idea to take this ride at least for two times or even more.
Visit the grand bazaar: The bazaars in Turkey generally have some traditional value and this is more true in the case of the Grand Bazaar. It holds the pride of being one of the oldest markets in the world. With more than 4000 shops, you can find nearly any item that you want to procure. You can procure some special item that can bring you the remembrance of Turkey, but do remember to bargain, the more you bargain, the best price you can get for the special products.
Private tour: Istanbul is a big city and it will be difficult to manage yourself as most of the people do not know English. So, the best thing you can do to comfortably make a visit to the places of attractions is to arrange for a private tour guide in Istanbul. There are many such professionals, who have extensive knowledge about the city and so they can explain about the culture of the city and they can also translate for you. As these professionals have the right knowledge about every nook and corner of the city, they can take you to the restaurants if you wish to enjoy the typical Turkish cuisine.
