It’s pretty hard to squeeze everything in a day trip to Istanbul, but that need not stop us from trying. In this post I’ll walk you through the top places to see, followed by a plan to target visiting everything in a day.

Some no-brainer techniques that you can apply to take more beautiful pictures of those memorable moments.
