I've lived in Istanbul for many years and consider myself a good explorer of the city, but I don't know how I could miss such a gem of the city! It is a bit hard to get there from the European side, so it is better to devote a whole day to it, but it is really worth a visit!... More

Camlıca is the highest hill in Istanbul. From here, you were able to see most parts of the Bosporus, view the entire city including the Golden Horn, Sultans Palace and the Hagia Sofia. In the night, lovers would meet here to enjoy full moon over the Marmara Sea. First, the TV transmittes messed its looks. Later, the new sultan has... More

Awesome place to visit, we will love this park if u are married or in a Honeymoon.. Best way to come here as the following: Taksim.. Kabats by Funicular. Bus to Besiktach...boat to Uskudar.. Then a bus from Uskudar to Camlica. A little bit walking 300m walking hilly area. TOTAL COST 8 TL only.

I went there cause I saw it on trip advisor, I think is has the best views of the entire city. It definitely worth the travel to the Asian side. You'll get amazing pictures, and it's pretty romantic by the way. My advice is to go an hour (at least) before sunset, and stay until all the lights of the... More

Fabulous views but not much else to do except wander about and enjoy the restaurant. Two small playgrounds for young kids.

Staying in Uskudar

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.
