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.
Step out of the city life by going to Halic and Silivri Sahili. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Hagia Sophia and Pierre Loti Tepesi. Next up on the itinerary: admire the striking features of Basilica Cistern, take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, explore the world behind art at Chora Museum, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Kapali Carsi.

Plan my day in Istanbul using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Istanbul is an approximately 15-hour flight. The time zone changes from Malaysia Time (MYT) to Turkey Time (TRT), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur in October, expect nights in Istanbul to be about the same, around 26°C, while days are little chillier, around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Mon) early enough to travel to Amasya.
