10 Best Spots In Istanbul, Turkey
Since the opening of the Marmaray tunnel in October, it's easier than ever to
travel both sides of the Bosphorus.
Anna Serrano/SOPA RF/SOPA/Corbis - The clichés are true: Istanbul, sprawling
over both the European and Asian continents is a thoroughly beguiling mixture of
east-meets-west. Now it’s even easier to go between the two. Since the opening
of the Marmaray metro in October, travellers can now criss-cross the gap with
ease, with journeys under the Bosphorus river taking a matter of minutes. Still,
the abundance of ferries means that if you’ve got time to spare, you can always
take the scenic route.
