ISTANBUL
Famous the world over for its vibrant amalgamation of cultures, former Constantinople is the pride of Byzantium, that's located on both sides of the Bosphorus, the narrow strait between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea.

The centre of the old world, Istanbul is an important metropolis famous for its historic monuments and charming natural beauty. The only city in the world that spreads across two continents - Europe and Asia, demarcated by the famous Bosporus! With almost 2500 years to its credit, this beautiful Byzantine city has a rich eventful history. Capital of the Romans, Byzantine and Turkish Ottoman empires, this dome studded city is full with charm of old bygone monuments, ancient squares and streets, excellent eating joints and a length of modern buildings.

Must See:
There are endless numbers of monuments to be seen here, and every stone on very streets has an epic tale to tell of battles fought and glories lost. The famous Hagia Sofia towers over the city, with its enormous dome and incredibly tall minarets. Other famous sites include Topkapi Palace, Sultanahmet Mosque, Galata Tower, and the Galata Whirling Dervish Hall. In fact, the entire Bosphorus is lined with numerous waterside palaces, which are all worth visiting. A boat tour will be most rewarding. Also visit a hamam, a Turkish bath, at least once on your vacation there. Other must visits include the Egyptian Spice Bazaar, Rumeli Fortress, Beylerbeyi Palace, Hippodrome, Camlica Hill - the highest point of Istanbul that provides a panoramic view, and the Dolmabahce Palace.

Shopping:
Shopping is Istanbul is an experience in itself. Gazing at the stark contrast of the modern with the traditional, explore the Nuruosmaniye Gate of Grand Bazaar (Capali Carsi) browsing through jewellery, pottery, spice, leather and carpets. The bazaar is one of the largest covered markets in the world with more than 58 streets and 4,000 shops, and has between 250,000 and 400,000 visitors daily! Built between 1455 and 1461by Sultan Mehmed, the bazaar contains two sections - domed masonry structures built for storage and safe keeping.

The Spice Bazaar/ Egyption Bazaar (Misir Carsisi) is the second largest covered shopping areas in Turkey an attributes its name to Egypt from where the spices were initially imported. In the Byzantine period, the Spice Bazaar was also the centre of corn trade.

Eating:
Turkish cuisine is considered one of the richest and oldest cooking traditions in the world! The authentic Istanbul cuisine is an outcome of the cuisine of Jews, Greeks and Armenians who were an integral part of Ottoman society. Beginning with soups, a traditional Turkish cuisine is a heady cocktail of soups, appetizers, wholesome meals, desserts and distinct drinks.

Kebab, Baklava, Lokum and Raki are the most commonly associated Turkish delicacies. Others include olive oil dishes, rice pilafs, stuffed vegetables, pickles, fruit preserves, compote, sherbet, boza (a thick beverage made of barley) coffee, pastries, puddings and syrupy desserts.

The exclusive Turkish food is a fine combination of wraps with fillings – the classical wrap is meat or rice wrapped in vine, cabbage or collard leaves although lettuce, nut, chestnut, cherry and sometimes violet leaves. There are as many as 15 variants of wraps as of today! There is an a rich variety of meat dishes in the form of grills, fried meats, kebabs, stews cooked in a crock or a pan.

Destination Information

ABOUT THE TERRITORY:
The Commonwealth of Australia is a country in the Southern Hemisphere comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area. Neighboring countries include Indonesia, East Timor, and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and New Caledonia to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east.

A highly developed country, Australia is the world's thirteenth largest economic country and has the world's seventh-highest per capita income. Australia's military expenditure is the world's twelfth largest. With the second-highest human development index globally, Australia ranks highly in many international comparisons of national performance, such as quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, and the protection of civil liberties and political rights. Australia is a member of the G20, OECD, WTO, APEC, UN, Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, and the Pacific Islands Forum.

Australia is the smallest of the world's continents, comprising the mainland of Australia and proximate islands including Tasmania, New Guinea, the Aru Islands and Raja Ampat Islands. Australia and these nearby islands, all part of the same geological landmass, are separated by seas overlying the continental shelf — the Arafura Sea and Torres Strait between Australia and New Guinea, and Bass Strait between mainland Australia and Tasmania.
When sea levels were lower during the Pleistocene ice age, including the last glacial maximum about 18,000 BC, the lands formed a single, continuous landmass. During the past ten thousand years, rising sea levels overflowed the lowlands and separated the continent into today's low-lying arid to semi-arid mainland and the two mountainous islands of New Guinea and Tasmania.
Geologically, the continent extends to the edge of the continental shelf, so the now-separate lands can still be considered a continent. Due to the spread of flora and fauna across the single Pleistocene landmass the separate lands have a related biota.
New Zealand is not on the same continental shelf and so is not part of the continent of Australia but is part of the submerged continent Zealandia. Zealandia and Australia together are part of the wider region known as Oceania or Australasia. Australia is sometimes known in technical contexts by the names Sahul, Australinea and Meganesia.

RELIGION:
Australia has no state religion. In the 2006 census, 64 per cent of Australians listed themselves as Christian, including 26 per cent as Roman Catholic and 19 per cent as Anglican. About 19 per cent of the population cited "No religion" (which includes humanism, atheism, agnosticism and rationalism), which was the fastest-growing group from 2001 to 2006, and a further 12 per cent did not answer (the question is optional) or did not give a response adequate for interpretation. The largest non-Christian religion in Australia is Buddhism (2.1 per cent), followed by Islam (1.7 per cent), Hinduism (0.8 per cent) and Judaism (0.5 per cent). Overall, fewer than 6 per cent of Australians identify with non-Christian religions. Weekly attendance at church services in 2004 was about 1.5 million: about 7.5 per cent of the population.

The Constitution of Australia prohibits the Commonwealth government from establishing a church or interfering with the freedom of religion, however, states are free under their own constitutions to interfere or establish a church, although none ever has. The relationship between the Commonwealth government and religion is much freer than in the United States, with governments working with religious organizations that provide education, health and other public services.

An international survey, made by the private, not-for profit German think-tank, the Bertelsmann Foundation, found that "Australia is one of the least religious nations in the western world, coming in 17th out of 21 [countries] surveyed" and that "Nearly three out of four Australians say they are either not at all religious or that religion does not play a central role in their lives." A survey of 1,718 Australians by the Christian Research Association at the end of 2009 suggested that the numbers of people attending religious services per month in Australia has dropped from 23 per cent in 1993 to 16 per cent in 2009, and while 60 per cent of 15 to 29-year-old respondents in 1993 identified with Christian denominations, 33 per cent did in 2009.

CULTURE:
The culture of Australia is essentially a Western culture influenced by the unique geography of the Australian continent and by the diverse input of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and various waves of multi-ethnic migration, which followed the British colonisation of Australia. The predominance of the English language, the existence of a democratic Westminster system of government, Christianity as the dominant religion and the popularity of sports such as cricket and rugby evidence a significant Anglo-Celtic heritage, but Australia today hosts a great diversity of cultural practices and pursuits.

The capital cities host such internationally renowned cultural institutions as the Sydney Opera House and National Gallery of Victoria, and Australia has contributed many artists to international pop and classical culture, from hard rock's AC/DC to opera's Joan Sutherland. Australians also support or participate enthusiastically in a wide variety of sports, including Australian Rules football and a vibrant surf culture.

Since 1788, the basis of Australian culture has been strongly influenced by Anglo-Celtic Western culture. Distinctive cultural features have also arisen from Australia's natural environment and Indigenous cultures. Since the mid-20th century, American popular culture has strongly influenced Australia, particularly through television and cinema. Other cultural influences come from neighboring Asian countries, and through large-scale immigration from non-English-speaking nations.

CLIMATE:
The climate of Australia varies widely, but by far the largest part of Australia is desert or semi-arid – 40% of the landmass is covered by sand dunes. Only the southeast and southwest corners have a temperate climate and moderately fertile soil. The northern part of the country has a tropical climate, varied between tropical rainforests, grasslands, and part desert.
Australia's climate is ruled by the dry, sinking air of the subtropical high-pressure belt, which moves north and south with the seasons. This causes the rainfall pattern over Australia to be strongly seasonal. In many parts of the country, seasonal high and lows can be great with temperatures ranging from above 50 ° Celsius to well below zero. Minimum temperatures are moderated by the lack of mountains and the influence of surrounding oceans.
Australia's rainfall is the lowest of the seven continents (besides Antarctica). Rainfall is variable, with frequent droughts lasting several seasons thought to be caused in part by the Southern Oscillation. The Southern Oscillation is associated to seasonal abnormality in many areas in the world, though Australia is one of the most affected continents, which experiences extensive droughts alongside with considerable wet periods.
Abundance of tropical cyclones, heatwaves, bushfires and frosts in the country are also associated to the Southern Oscillation. Occasionally a duststorm will blanket a region or even several states and there are reports of the occasional large tornado. Rising levels of salinity and desertification in some areas is ravaging the landscape. According to Bureau of Meteorology, 80% of the land has a rainfall less than 600 millimeters (23.62 in) per year and 50% having even less than 300 millimeters (11.81 in).

LANGUAGE:
As Australia has no official language, English is so entrenched that it has become the de facto national language. Australian English is a major variety of the language with a distinctive accent and lexicon. Grammar and spelling are similar to that of British English with some notable exceptions. From 2006 onwards English is the only language spoken in the home for close to 79 per cent of the population. The next most common languages spoken at home are Italian (1.6 per cent), Greek (1.3 per cent) and Cantonese (1.2 per cent); a considerable proportion of first- and second-generation migrants are bilingual. A 2010–2011 study by the Australia Early Development Index found that the most common language spoken by children after English was Arabic, followed by Vietnamese, Greek, Chinese, and Hindi. But due to the multicultural flavor of our country, it is also common to find in some suburbs, especially in Sydney and Melbourne where no one understands English.
As most "Dinki Di" Australians are well known around the world for their friendly helpful nature, if you have trouble understanding us at anytime, we are sure the majority of good aussies will gladly offer assistance if you need a "chin wag".

CUISINE OF AUSTRALIA:
The area in which they lived largely influenced the food of Indigenous Australians. Most tribal groups subsisted on a simple hunter-gatherer diet, hunting native game and fish and collecting native plants and fruit. The general term for native Australian flora and fauna used as a source of food is bush tucker. The first settlers introduced British food to the continent much of what is now considered typical Australian food is based on the Sunday roast has become an enduring tradition for many Australians. Since the beginning of the 20th century, food in Australia has increasingly been influenced by immigrants to the nation, particularly from Southern European and Asian cultures. Australian wine is produced in 60 distinct production areas totaling approximately 160,000 hectares, mainly in the southern, cooler parts of the country. The wine regions in each of these states produce different wine varieties and styles that take advantage of local climates and soil types. The predominant varieties are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Semillon, Pinot noir, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc. In 1995, an Australian red wine, Penfolds Grange, won the Wine Spectator award for Wine of the Year, the first time a wine from outside France or California achieved this distinction.
Australian Food
Australia has become famous in the culinary world for its 'fusion' food: since the 1970s Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese Japanese and Indian immigrants in particular have had a big impact on Australian cuisine. As well as Asian, you will also be able to find Spanish, Balkan, Hungarian, Turkish and Lebanese restaurants.
Aussie Beer
Beer in Australia basically means cold lager with strength of around 5 per cent. Beer connoisseurs looking for something akin to real ale should check out Coopers, which is brewed in South Australia, or Sydney's James Squire. There are also are several microbreweries specializing in cider.

Darwin residents are Australia's biggest consumers of beer. Unsurprisingly then, Darwin is also home to the world's largest beer bottle: the 1.25-liter Darwin stubby.

Australian Wine
The international reputation of Australian wine has never been greater, and most wineries have salerooms, which offer wines available for tasting. Major wine growing regions containing large numbers of wineries you can visit are:
• Barrossa Valley
• Hunter Valley
• Yarra Valley
The cheapest wine comes in 2 and 4-liter casks, and on average Australians drinks twice as much wine per capita as Americans or Britons. 'Kanga rouge' is the equivalent of VIN de table.
If driving, bear in mind that the blood alcohol limit in Australia is a half-pint less than in the UK. Random breath testing is widespread, and in some states if you hit something, you face a compulsory breath test.
Top food and drink tips
• Take a tour round a winery
• Try a 'pie floater' or Chico Roll
• Drink some Aussie real ale
• Sample Moreton Bay Bugs
• Experiment with fusion food
• Don't drink and drive
