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.
Rustem Pasha Mosque and Ortakoy are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Delmece Yaylasi and Florya Sahil Parkı. Go for a jaunt from Istanbul to Yalova to see Erikli Waterfall about 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), stroll through Suma Beach, steep yourself in history at Little Hagia Sophia, and kick back and relax at Solar Plajı.

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. August in Istanbul sees daily highs of 34°C and lows of 25°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
