This is gorgeous at night! The best vantage point I had was from the top floor bar of the Hotel Intercontenental near Taksim Square. It was all lit up and red, leading to Asia. I later learned that it's often lit up in different colors....More

This bridge is amazing, I saw it from a city tour bus & from a boat on the Bosporus, the Turks are great engineers.

The Bosphorus Bridge is one of two bridges that spans the Bosphorus Strait, connecting the European and Asian sides of Istanbul. It stretches from Ortakoy on the European side to Beylerbeyi on the Asian side and is sometimes referred to as the First Bosphorus Bridge....More

Just like the Brooklyn Bridge it's something that must be done. Lot of foot traffic and not a difficult walk. Fishing can be done off the bridge

There are several places from which you can get a good view of this Bridge. However, expect heavy traffic even at midnight and so, travel by car is not the best option. Better to view the bridge from afar

A very special moment for us riding from Singapore to Germany now being in Europe after 32.000km. This is a moving experience and lovely bridge over the Bosporus. Really a strong feeling it gives you!

It's big, it's long, and makes you feel like you are traveling between continents. Oh wait, you are.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening

Try the public tram system.I'll try to find out which station you need to alight. Also depends where you're travelling from but the trams are really good.
