Istanbul : Bosphorus Cruise, Spice Bazaar, Taksim Square


Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

This is my last outfit post from Istanbul, Turkey. We had to go for some cable car ride but the cable car was out of order so all of us headed to Taksim Square. We could have gone to Taksim Square on day 1 when we had some time but we read some reviews online and they were not good. So we skipped. But when we went there the last day, OMG! we so regretted not coming to that place earlier. It’s a shopping heaven in Turkey. There are beautiful shops and cafes there. It’s in European part of Turkey. you can walk around in the lanes, catch up on some shopping and later chill out over glasses of beer. :)) Anyway, Sanjeev and I did a 45 minute of treasure hunt and it was awesome. I will share my haul soon. πŸ™‚

We headed to the most awaited Bosphorus Cruise. We did it in a private boat at it was the perfect end to our trip. We sailed somewhere between Asia and Europe. At the coastline were stunning houses parked with private yacht parked outside. The view, the music, the people and the happiness , we couldn’t ask for more. πŸ™‚

We later headed to the very colorful Spice Bazaar. We tried so many sweets there- Baklava, Turkish Delight, various teas, some semolina dessert. It was amazing. It’s a perfect place to pack some yummy goodies for you friends and family.

All of us got really sad that the trip was getting over. But that’s how every trip gets. But this time it was as if we were travelling with our family. It was brilliant! πŸ™‚

We’d post ‘How to Plan your Turkey Trip’ soon. I’d share some more pics that I clicked from my phone. Some got posted on Instagram and some were not. I’d share all of them. πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoyed our trip through the pics as much as we did sharing them with all of you. Mwwwaaaah!! πŸ™‚

    Wow i just love your pics, and u look like model, i feel like ur doing some magazine photo shoot, i should say all the credit goes for Sanjeev ji, and those houses with yacht pics, remember me Thousand islands near Niagara Falls, literally 1000 islands in the border of U.S and Canada, and some islands have beautiful castles, we can visit 2 castles also, u should visit that place Rati, many says the place is not good, but i say it is awesome to look from camera lens. So when is the next trip? I hope your next trip to U.S, so that i can meet you, every time i am saying this, but i am so eager to meet u Rati.

    • Rati says:
