I enjoyed the sky ride. It is like a tour around Istanbul visiting the main sites. Water splashes were funny. I was able to see the whole city from up there.

It is 25TL. I thought it was worth it. The pictures I took at night were beautiful. Also it is im a more affordable area of town so meals, shopping is reasonable.

There are two amazing things that distinguish this mall from others. The panoramic view and the helicopter simulation which there are located at the rooftop. There is a coffee shop that has two sections; open and closed areas where both of them you can enjoy the fantastic view of Istanbul and its Bosporus from the top. To get there you... More

Seeing the modern skyscrapers of Levent next to the winding informality of Gultepe gives you a great sense of what Istanbul is.

But if you go on a cloudy day you won't see anything. I just went because they offer a discount on cloudy days.

Istanbul Sapphire is one of the most high buildings in Turkey. Exciting impression from being so high above Great City Istanbul. Fascinating chance to look over vast landscapes from Black Sea to Marmara.

I could say that it's almost 5 stars because the view is not exactly 360 degrees, but you can see most Istanbul from above. The observation deck contains an open terrasse with tables and chairs and a nice cafe with a souvenir shop. In order to come up, there is a nice, elegant elevator. The entrance is through the Sapphire... More
