The Insider Tips reveal where you might spend an evening drinking raki and where you can relax with a glass of tea after a long walk.

The Perfect Day takes you on a tour starting with breakfast on the central Taksim Square, then on to strolling along Istanbul's historic thoroughfare, the Istiklal Caddesi, and then, via the Gelata Bridge, to the Old City to gaze in awe at world-famous monuments before finishing off with an evening in the trendy district of Beyoglu. Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you're on a tight budget and where you might pick up some real bargains. The Dos & Don'ts explain why you should count your money in a taxi and why you shouldn't kiss in public.
