Istanbul Activities Guide (What To Do? Travel, Entertainment)

Taksim Square and its surroundings
Taksim is one of the most famous districts of Istanbul with its lively and cosmopolitan city life, crowded streets, popular restaurants and cafes, shopping centers and shops, tourist attractions, live entertainment and nightlife.


Spend a fun day with your kids at the amusement parks

Amusement and theme parks, dolphin show centers and aquariums, which offer unlimited entertainment, adrenaline and exciting activities and leisure time, especially for families with children, have been very popular in Istanbul in recent years.

Theme parks are ideal centers not only for having fun, but also for developing your children’s learning abilities and imaginations. Isfanbul (former Vialand), Sea Life Istanbul Aquarium and Istanbul LEGOLAND Discovery Center take the lead among the most visited theme parks in Istanbul.

Enjoy the Bosphorus Cruise by boat

Visiting the Bosphorus by boat is a very popular daily activity in Istanbul, especially for foreign tourists. We strongly recommend you to join the Bosphorus Cruise by Boat, which is made with city line ferries or private boats.

The impressive Bosphorus tour, starting from Eminönü to Anadolu Kavağı, is one of the must-do sightseeing activities for Istanbul’s visitors. Your Istanbul trip would not be complete without a traditional and unforgettable sea cruise by ferry or boat in the Bosphorus, which separates Europe and Asia.


Istanbul City Tour by Open Top Bus (Big Bus Istanbul)

It is possible to see all the popular historical and touristic places of Istanbul with this tour, which offers an unmissable opportunity especially for those who come to Istanbul from outside, and which you can see as the City Sightseeing Bus in many cities of the world. You can tour Istanbul by hop-on hop-off with a ticket valid all day.

If you live in Istanbul or know Istanbul well, you do not need to join such a tour anyway. You can visit the touristic places of Istanbul much cheaper by public transportation.
