Day 13 Not Constantinople!!

A travel blog entry by bru48cas on May 23, 2014

Up early to beat the tour groups to breakfast. Doh. Not early enough. Man oh man what a zoo just getting a table then food quality not great. Out the door by 8.30am for the reasonably long walk to Topkapi Palace to once again be ahead of the crowds. As we approached we were accosted by any number of very friendly men saying "let me show you the way …

J’avais, à l’époque, donné mon accord pour ce voyage en Turquie, un pays que je ne connaissais pas …

... maze like streets and alleys that serve the over r4,000 shops. Small cubby like shops sell everything from Turkish Delight to touristy trinkets, to furs, to clothes both copies and originals. It is also a major gold and silver market. Sellers in the Grand Bazaar sit outside their stores and talk. Coffee and tea is delivered by guys carrying cups on a swinging tray.

A travel blog entry by sooboo15

... called Tashan Arkat to have dinner and watch Turkish belly dancing. To say it was crowded would be an understatement !!!!! The food was very average, we couldn't see the show, there was absolutely NO room to move and the 'boys' (Pg, Bruce and Jeff) waited AGES for their drinks which they the had to gulp down because it was time to go (thank goodness!).

    We stayed here because we got it on Priority club points.
    Good spot in the middle of Old Town. Venue for tour groups so be prepared for the crowds at meal times.
    Nice room and service pretty good.
