Baru ku temui setelah beberapa hari mencari - mungkin cuaca yg sejuk menyebabkan tak kelihatan MTB dijalanan.

Pemandangan yg indah sepanjang menyusuri Selat Bosphorus, dapat melihat istana Dolmabahce, kota lama dll . Selat Bosphorus juga dikenali sebagai Selat Istanbul , ialah sebuah selat yang memisahkan Turki pada bahagian Eropah (Thrace) dan bahagian Asia (Anatolia), menghubungkan Laut Marmara dengan Laut Hitam. Selat ini memiliki garis panjang 30 km, dengan lebar maksimum 3,700 meter pada bahagian utara, dan minimum 750 meter antara Anadoluhisarı dan Rumelihisarı. The name ‘’Bosphorus’’ is derived from mythology and it means the ‘’Bull’s Passage’’.


Selepas itu ke Istana Dolmabahce - kehebatan, kekayaan kesultanan Othmaniyah ...huuuhh syok jadi raja!!

Dolmabahce Palace, a blend of many European architectural styles, was built between 1843 and 1856. The Dolmabahçe Palace was home to six sultans from 1856, when it was first inhabited, up until the abolition of the Caliphate in 1924
The three-storeyed palace built on a symmetrical plan has 285 rooms and 43 halls
The palace has survived intact with its original decorations, furniture, silk carpets, curtains and everything else. In wealth and magnificence the Dolmabahce Palace surpasses all other palace in the world.
The walls and ceilings are covered with paintings by the famous artists of the age with decorations made by using tons of gold. All the furnishings in the major rooms and halls are in different tones of the same colour. Very ornate wood parquet, different in each room, covers the floors. 


Selepas makan tgh ke muzium Aya Sophea

Hagia Sophia is a great architectural beauty and an important monument both for Byzantine and for Ottoman Empires. Once a church, later a mosque, and now a museum


Kemudian ke Spice Bazaar 

Istanbul's Egyptian Bazaar (or Spice Market, Misir Çarsisi, built 1664)and is the second-oldest covered shopping area in Istanbul. Spices, dried fruits, nuts and seeds, lokum (Turkish Delight) and other edibles fill most of the shops, though jewelry and other high-margin goods have begun to move in.
