Travelers' Choice #3 Destination: Istanbul

Image TripAdvisor users love Marrakech. They chose the Moroccan city as the No. 1 place to visit in 2015. Istanbul is ranked #3. TripAdvisor says, "The mosques, bazaars, and Turkish baths of Istanbul could keep you happily occupied for your entire trip: an eyeful of breathtaking architecture here, a good-natured haggle over a carpet there. Kick your trip off at the awe-inspiring Sultan Ahmet Camii (Blue Mosque), which is visible from many points of the city. Stroll the Galata Bridge and stop by the Miniaturk Park to see its tiny artifacts. The Grand Bazaar has thousands of shops to browse, while the Egyptian Bazaar is a fragrant trove of spices and fruits."
