The Treasures of Old Istanbul

A travel blog entry by wwatling


Saturday May 4 Day 2 Arrive Istanbul

We land in Istanbul after 12 hours. It is now Saturday 4:30 pm. Back in SF it's Friday 6:30 AM. We all exit the plane's stairway since it appears there's no gate available. A crowded bus takes us the short way to the terminal where we enter our first queue. This one is to buy a visa. The next one is …

Dolmabahce Palace

A travel blog entry by ecirpnek


Leaving the best until last, we visited the Dolmabahce Palace this morning as our last thing to see in Istanbul. It was the last palace of the Sultans built in the 1840-50s and is amazing in its opulence. It is like a time warp, as if the last Sultan had just moved out.
