Travel Pics Around Istanbul

This tour of Istanbul by lonely planet will help you get a great overview of the city. And while it is not directed at children many of the activities and attractions visited are appropriate for families with kids of all ages.

Turkey is a friendly country  with kids in tow. However sometimes a little too friendly and it's not too uncommon for a local to pick up or unwittingly invade your personal space a little. But that in itself is not any reason to hesitate a city rich in history and sensational experiences. And while there are a few made for children attractions like Atlantis water-park and the Miniaturk miniature Turkish monument reconstruction. Really it's the cultural and street attractions the kids need appreciate to really make of a vacation here.


The Grand bazar

Bazar Market StallBazar Market Stall

Great place to pick up an ice cream with the kids. Remember bartering is more the  norm than the exception. The stall holders will think you want to buy if you stop to look for too long in a country where browsing  is not really something people do.


Take a Tour

Kids will love taking a tour from a double-decker bus or tram from Taksum Square to see the city sights.

Transport can easily take you here and other interesting mosques around the city and further afield.


The Festival of Troy

The iconic hose associated with the battles against the Trojans is the setting for a festival organised for the joy of children specifically in mind. In August as part of the festival of Hisarlik white doves are released from the Trojan Horse in a gesture of peace, and there are continuous dancing and singing involved. The kids can  climb up into the body of the wooden horse.


Pamukkale Thermal Pools

Located between the Mediterranean and Augean areas of Turkey these pools are made as limestone settles as the springs rise and overflow.  They look spectacular and make for terrifiv Turkey Travel Pics. Nearby children can enjoy the thermal baths for themselves.
