The large-scale Grand Bazaar adopts a fully enclosed design that receives visitors from all over the world every day. People have installed a set of lockable doors and fences for the market, so that after a day of trading, the market can be safely closed.

You will love Istambul! It’s magical!!! You can have beautiful view from the hundred of rooftop restaurants they have. We just couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. The prices are so reasonable and you can easily move in the city. it’s completely safe and easy. There is so much to do. I recommend you to stay anywhere near the river. 👏🏻 The restaurant in the picture it’s in Raddison Hotel.
Taking in the magnificent views of the mosque, the brilliant palaces on at one side while the other side is the elegant modern bungalows that lie on the shores of the blue sea, skyscrapers.
In the midst of a cool breeze, when the blue clouds and seawater blended in a blue color, you will see a modern but ancient Istanbul that appeals every travelers’ souls.
The view from the hotel is amazing, right on the Bosphorus! ! This hotel is a 5 star hotel, with very good service and buffet breakfast. Try and ask for an upgrade, to get breakfast which is chocolate and fruit. Highly recommended.
