A favourite view...

What it is: A great place to watch the sunset and view the city skyline is on the Asian side of Istanbul at Kadiköy. Haydarpasa train station, of Oriental Express fame, dominates the skyline above, while to its left are both the Haghia Sophia and Blue Mosque if you look very carefully. The ubiquitous Istanbul ferry becomes a blur in its silent movement towards the quayside.

Where it is: On the waterfront at Kadiköy just by the ferry landing. From the European side you just jump on one of the ferries, alternatively there are plenty of buses given that there is a large bus terminus there.
