If you’re one to draw your inspiration from the smell of wet grass and the glistening drops of dew, then London is the place for you this fall (or autumn as the British like to call it).
One of the world’s best cities, London does not require an introduction, really. From its iconic skyline to its rich and diverse culture, it is indeed one of those cities a traveller can visit again and again and still find new exciting things every time.
Start with a breath-taking view of the city from the famous London Eye and enjoy a closer look of the city’s major attractions in a boat trip through the Thames. Then take a tour in the city’s sophisticated west end and visit the her majesty at the Buckingham Palace, the famous Big Ben and Westminster abbey, as well as Hyde Park and make sure to swing by the booming West end theatre and arts scene.
In a city like London finding a good hotel could become a bit tricky, so to save you some time and hassle, here are a few hotels we recommend:
Corinthia Hotel London
K+K Hotel George
The Mild: Istanbul
Weather: warm, some chance of rain
Temperature: 23C / 70F
Clothes: warm clothes
If you’re looking for a warmer place where you can enjoy the perfect weather as well as an amazing mix of culture, history and nature, then look no further: Istanbul is that perfect place.
Bridging Europe and Asia, two of the continents of the ancient world, Istanbul’s uniqueness does not come from its status as a natural masterpiece alone, but also from its far reaching history as the capital to consecutive Christian and Islamic empires, which has bestowed upon it a staggering wealth of attractions.
Begin your journey in this haven of beauty, history and culture with a cruise across the Bosporus and enjoy the magnificent trip between the continents. Then head straight to Sultanahmet where you’ll find many a gem of Istanbul’s major historical attractions, like the Church of the Divine Wisdom: Aya Sofia (Haghia Sofya) the greatest legacy of the Byzantine Empire, and Topkapı Palace, the centre and symbol of the Ottoman Empire, as well as the monumental Sultanahmet Camii, also known as the Blue Mosque with its 6 minarets dominating the skyline of old Istanbul.
Satisfy your souvenir-hungry self with a visit to the Grand Bazaar, where you’ll find treasures of hand crafted master pieces to remember every bit of your trip with awe. Then enjoy an unmatched experience in the traditional Turkish Hammams.
