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 take in Istanbul’s sights by boat is to take a commuter ferry to the Asian side. Several companies provide regular service between Eminonu, Karakoy, Kabataş, and Besiktas on the European side with Uskudar (closest to Beylerbeyi Palace) and Kadikoy in Anatolia. As Istiklal Caddesi become more commercial, Kadikoy’s Moda Caddesi has become a new favorite for shopping, strolling, and dining. A tram runs a ring all the way from Kadikoy’s ferry station to the Moda pier, with great views of the European side and Princes' Islands. Walk back along Moda Caddesi to browse the many fish and vegetable markets, or check out some live music at one of the pubs and cafes on Bar Street. Finish your cross-continental adventure with a glass of çay (tea) back on board the ferry while you pass landmarks like the Maiden's Tower and Haydarpasa Railway Station.
