If you want to get away from the crowd of Istanbul even for a couple of hours, you should go and visit Princess Islands. They are just 2 hours away from Istanbul but the boat trip across the Marmara sea and some salty air will make your mood change for a good. The moment you get out f the boat to the Island, you will feel the difference of fresh air since cars are not allowed in the islands. We recommend you to try sea food restaurants for eating fresh Marmara fish. You should also try the ice cream, cycling along the island and ride the horse carriage to watch the beautiful view of Istanbul…The most popular islands are Büyükada, Heybeliada, Burgazada ve Kınalıada.
Buyukada is famous for its most beautiful agricutural houses. In Heybeliada, you can visit the Aya Nichola Church. And in Burgazada, you can visit the famous writer Sait Faik Abasiyanik’s house which has been turned into a museum. Kinaliada is the closest island to Istanbul which has less trees compared to the other green islands. The way to the Princess Islands from Taxim suites is to take a tram to Kabatas first and then take the nostalgic boat to the islands from Kabatas.
