      Destination: East meets west in the Turkish city of Istanbul

      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.
