A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
Head to Koza Hani and Istiklal Streetfor plenty of shopping. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) and Rahmi M. Koc Museum. Explore Istanbul's surroundings by going to Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki (in Basiskele), Ulu Cami (in Bursa) and Asaf Family Beach (in Adalar). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Sultanahmet District, admire the landmark architecture of Eyüp Sultan Mosque, explore the world behind art at Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum (Turk ve Islam Eserleri Muzesi), and take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya).

For more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Istanbul trip builder site .

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In August, daytime highs in Istanbul are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 25°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
