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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Walking tours and Halic. Get out of town with these interesting Istanbul side-trips: Bursa (Green Tomb & Ulu Cami), Buyukada (Aya Yorgi Church & Nakibey Plaj) and Sapanca Lake (in Sapanca). Spend the 17th (Sun) exploring nature at Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.

For photos, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Istanbul travel route site .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
