Breakfast was avarage on the beginning. Guide did not stop talking. For every step he had a story. Tasted different local tastes. But the "finish him" was at Chiya Restaurant. One day later we went there again.

We were staying on Taksim side. When we passed to other Asian continent I have found the atmosphere strange. I thought buildings were coming on me. I had to finish the tour early unfortunately.

Due to we stay in a XXBnB apartment we have a kitchen. That s why we got some fish when we visit Fish Market. And got some tips about how to cook it well from Chiya Restaurant s chef.
