    The Asian side of Istanbul
    A visit to Istanbul is incomplete without a visit to the Asian side. Kadikoy market is on the Asian side of the city. Kadikoy market is the place where the locals buy sweet, pickles, coffee, fish, olives and cheese.

    A real market
    This market is so much nicer than those touristy ones on the European side. Relaxed and good prices without all the tourist rubbish. We had some balık ekmek (fish salad rolls) and bought our lokum (Turkish delight). A great place to wander. Easy to get here by ferry and only ł25.

    Easiest visit to the Asian side of Istanbul
    This site was recommended by our guide but we travelled there independently. It is the easiest sector of Istanbul to visit on the Asian side, readily accessible by ferries from Karakoy and Eminönü. It is primarily a produce market and we didn't find many shops with touristy souvenirs. There seems to be some nice restaurants and bakeries. When were were there we saw many advertisements and vans for the upcoming local elections. If is this is your only chance to visit the Asian side of Istanbul then I recommend it.

    Much more chilled and less expensive than the other side of the Bosporus
    The market here is a feast for the eyes as well as the belly. After a few days being totally hounded and hassled, Kadikoy was a perfect antidote to the crowds and hard sell of Sultanahmet, not to mention, much cheaper. The atmosphere is much more relaxed than the other side of the water & we ended up staying into the evening to check out the restaurants and bars that abound the little cobbled streets. I would definitely recommend a visit to this lovely neighbourhood

Very nice place to visit typical Turkish flea market a lot of tot Very busy, quite tiring going up and down hills
Avoid Simit saray As it is very unhygienic dirty and you’ll probably catch an infection

Been travelling to Kadidoy & Istanbul for last few years - Kadidoy is still worth a visit, and the selection of traditional turkish food, especially Lokantsi's (canteen type places) is excellent and great value. Kadikoy is much less frenetic than main tourist centres. However, the turkish economy is having an effect on sellers - have been duped twice on this trip. Always check the price of your goods before you commit to buy - 99% of turkish of shopkeepers are honest and enjoy interacting with tourists but things seems more desperate for some sales people. Always ask the price of goods especially if not displayed fully - there also seem to be more empty shops/ buildings in Kadikoy. It feels like the split between haves and have nots is widening. The average turkish person is working hard to maintain any sort of standard of living. Keeping up with price/ echange changes with over 50% inflation is a full time occupation. Still thoroughly recommend Kadikoy but there are also many other districts of Istanbul that are still tourist free and other cities (Trabzon was a good trip) - the buses all over Istanbul are excellent and extensive so just explore and follow your nose or gain some inside knowledge from an Istanbul guide. Istanbul has expanded at an enourmous rate and the suburbs/ districts go on for miles. Turkish people are extremely friendly and accommodating. Have a cup of Cay when you buy something - chatting is a national pastime ! Enjoy

The market was fun to look around and buy some fresh produce. We bought some cheese/nuts/olives back home as souvenirs. There are also tons of shops selling non-food souvenirs. Plenty of restaurants around the area too if you're feeling hungry.

Love this small area near heart of Istanbul.
When I was here the weather, the view and all make me feel so blue.

You can find traditional market here where sell many kind of food and a bit cheaper than in Istanbul.

You should try Salep. It is a kind of traditional drink in Turkey which is so nice.
Love Kadikoy so much and would love to be back here again very soon.

On my last day in Istanbul, I had to make a difficult decision: Visit Museums using my Istanbul Card or visit the Asian side of Istanbul, Kadikoy. I chose the latter.

It is a short 20-minute Ferry Ride from the Eminoni Pier. Ferry fare is 12.50 TL or about 63 cents.

This is one of few attractions I visited in Kadikoy where they’re selling everything: clothings, pharmacy needs, shoes, seafoods, etc. There are also restaurants and coffee shops around.

I went to one restaurant represented to be one of oldest in Kadikoy. The staff do not speak English but one of their customers did the translation for us. Foods were delicious and the Chef asked if I enjoyed my foods. There is less hassles in Kadikoy than in the European side of Istanbul.

Came over on the ferry to make sure that we went to the Asia side. Enjoyed strolling around looking at the shops. All very relaxed.
