Take a Quick Trip to Asia

While a Bosphorus cruise is very much deserving of a spot on your Istanbul itinerary, a quicker and cheaper option to see Istanbul’s sights by boat is to take a commuter ferry to the Asian side. Several companies provide regular service between Eminönü, Karaköy, Kabataş, and Beşiktaş, all on the European side, and Üsküdar (closest to Beylerbeyi Palace) and Kadiköy in Anatolia. As İstiklal Avenue has become more commercial, Kadıköy’s Moda Avenue has become a new favorite for shopping, strolling, and dining. A tram runs a ring all the way from Kadıköy’s ferry station to the Moda pier, with great views of the European side and Princes' Islands. Walk back along Moda Avenue to browse the many fish and vegetable markets, or check out some live music at one of the pubs and cafés on Bar Street. Finish your cross-continental adventure with a glass of çay (tea) back on board the ferry while you pass landmarks such as the Maiden's Tower and Haydarpaşa Railway Station.
