In this area, downside the Bosphorus bridge, you'll experience amazing things. Cruise ships that offer launch or dinners including shows. Also in the Ortakoy area there is plenty of luxurious restaurants offering an amazing view.

I think almost every one visit the city of Istanbul knows this strait. You can take tours, also you can take the ferry from one side to the other. The bridges on this strait are mega and very nice, especially at night.

You would be missing a major attraction unique to Istanbul. A few stops along the way and you can swim in the Black Sea.

In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for
space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green
parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather
wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of
opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For
