No. 1 Top Destination in 2014: Istanbul, Turkey
A wildly fantastic blend of East and West, Istanbul offers a glimpse into a heavily religious — yet still secular — country with a storied history flows through the city’s bloodstream. Tour the city’s revered Blue Mosque and hauntingly beautiful Hagia Sophia, haggle at the Grand Bazaar and load up on delicious foodie items at the Spice Market. While the European side of the city holds most of the tourist attractions, take a boat tour to the Asian side for a cultural experience you’ll never forget.
