A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
Spend the 24th (Fri) floating through the air with a balloon tour. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi, and admire the striking features of Dolmabahce Palace.

To see maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Istanbul trip planner.

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in August, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
