Instanbul Hotels: choose between East and West
A visit to the convention centre in Istanbul allows you to experience one of Europe's biggest meeting spaces. The Istanbul Congress Centre hosts events for musicians, fashion designers and theatre groups from across Europe. Away from the convention centre, you can indulge in the annual Istanbul International Film Festival. While it may lack Cannes' prestige, it is full of independent directors and raw talent.
Staying in Istanbul gives you the chance to see where Eastern and Western cuisines meet. Experience a traditional doner kebab by heading to Istiklal Street, or head to the coast for an authentic buffet. Istanbul restaurateurs compete to get you inside.
Istanbul hotels are always within easy reach of traditional wares and international brands alike. The city remains a great trading route, and retains the historic charm that makes its bazaars so delightful. Head off the beaten path to find exciting antiques.
Major Points of Interest
Hagia Sofia is one of the city's biggest mosques. Several times a day the Muslim call to prayer rings through the city, causing life to pause for many of its inhabitants. Lovers of flora may want to plan their visit to Istanbul in April or May to attend the Istanbul Tulip Festival. To experience Istanbul in all its glory, take a walking tour.
Modern facilities envelop Istanbul sports. Local teams dominate the Turkish Basketball League, so try to catch a game at the Galatasaray Medical Park. Occasionally, the F1 World Powerboat Championship stops in Istanbul and is well worth a visit. Step back in time and watch the ancient Turkish sport of oil wrestling, with matches occurring regularly throughout the city, or attend the yearly Oil Wrestling Festival.
