Istanbul: The Bosphorus

Posted on 05 January 2016 by Dreidel Regala


Week 5


The Asian Turkey on the east and the European Turkey on the west. The Bosphorus is where you’ll want to be if you want to be in two continents at once. That and if you want to see Istanbul’s pretty coastline.


“What are you doing tomorrow?”

We are sitting in the rooftop of our Beyoglu/Istiklal hostel and I just found out that my hostel mates are doing Erasmus in Istanbul. Ah I remember that time when I dare try to get in but wasn’t smart enough lol fun times.

I’m about to end my trip in Turkey and I have yet been on the Bosphorus so when a plan to see it the following day came up I was very excited.


We took a commuter ferry instead of a tourist cruise. It was cheaper compared to the Bosphorus cruise, around 2.15 lira if I remember right.




The sunsets onboard was beautiful.


Sibel here was our awesome Istanbul insider. Showing us her university where we lost in a game of table hockey and walking us around the city. Oh I still remember that yummy waffle in Bebek!






Another plus when you take the commuter ferry is you can hop off anywhere you want. We got off here to get our delicious waffle and the typical turkish snack kumpir.
