Istanubul’s Asia side offers a more serene and peaceful escape from the bustling European side.  The two districts I recommend visiting are Moda/Kadikoy and Uskadur/Guzkunteck! A quick 15 minute Ferry ride is the way to go and a must visit is the Kitabevi Kafe. It’s a quaint cafe where the locals browse books and magazines while enjoying a turkish beverage.  Another peaceful escape is to walk up to Nakkastepe Millet Bahcesi (Park) which is only a 20 min walk.  It’s lush greenery and elegant pathways lead to some extraordinary scenic points which offer stunning views anytime of day but especially during sunset.
