Istanbul

Queen of Cities

A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
Spend the 10th (Fri) exploring nature at Bentler Tabiat Parki. And it doesn't end there: admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia, steep yourself in history at Basilica Cistern, browse the eclectic array of goods at Kapali Carsi, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Istanbul is an approximately 8-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Dubai to Istanbul. Traveling from Dubai in April, expect Istanbul to be cooler, temps between 20°C and 9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) so you can travel to Pamukkale.

The landmass known as Anatolia on which Turkey thrives has been home to numerous civilizations and their faiths and cultures, as attested by the 13 World Heritage Sites and countless religious sites you'll find here. Relive the ancient world through the ruins, customs, and traditions that are among the nation's most precious heritages. Adventure-seekers have plenty do to here, including mountain climbing, scuba diving, rafting, and skiing. A holiday to Turkey is incomplete without a cup of Turkish coffee, the pinnacle of Turkish cuisine inscribed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
