There are 450 small and big mosques in Istanbul, Turkey, specificlly in old town Istanbul.

There is bridge between new town and old town in Istanbul. Most of historical sites are located in the old, on the other side, it is very international in the new town.

Turkey is also famous for its food, and the sweet one is excellent.

Like other big capital cities, taking a taxi is good choice in Istanbul.

There is an amazing market called Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. In Grand Bazaar, there are over 4000 stores in the market.

As a coastal city, Istanbul is a great place to fish. 

Besides Istanbul, I went to Cappadocia area to enjoy the hot air balloon event. In the morning, there are hundreds of hot air balloons by different companies flying away to see the sunrise.

Every hot air ballon has its own pilot. 

Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you enjoy my photography!
