      Destination: East meets west in the Turkish city of Istanbul

      By Birmingham Mail


      Basilica Cistern, Imran Oktem Cad, Sultanahmet

      It is the city where two continents collide, their cultures and heritage blending in a unique atmosphere.

      Europe and Asia meet in Istanbul, and throughout this vibrant city you’ll find centuries-old mosques, churches and markets happily rubbing shoulders with modern restaurants, galleries and nightclubs.

      The cost of an overnight stay varies from £10 to £1,000 depending on your taste because Istanbul is also a city of contrasts. Whatever you do, plan on visiting a hamman – the traditional Turkish bath that the UK’s stylish spas try, but fail, to replicate. For about £12 your skin will be scrubbed clean, a fraction of the cost you’d pay back home.
