Bagdat street is the heart of the Asian side of Istanbul. The lively part starts in Bostanci, across from the boat house and ends in Kiziltoprak, near Kadikoy. There are many shops, book stores, restaurants and side-walk cafes along the street. There might be nothing for the tourists here but, if you are curious about how people live on the Asian side of Istanbul, you may want to spend some time here before you take off to the Prince Islands from Bostanci.
