Istanbul is one of the most amazing cities in the world!!

Istanbul by night, is illuminated by spotlit mosques, coloured lights on the bridge, busy street traffic and the ambient glow from the cafes, bars and restaurants. There is just as much to discover by way of culinary delights or entertainment such as a Turkish folklore evening.
