I read about this place in an old Rick Steve's guide. It is NOT at all touristy and you may be the only non-Turk in the place. I consider that to be a good thing, but you may not. First off, the location. The book...More

Many people take the opportunity when visiting Istanbul to take a genuine Turkish bath. There is, however, a certain etiquette to observe. You are naked but you will be given a towel. It is good manners to keep your private parts covered with the towel....More

This experience was quite unique for us. We were in Turkish baths before but mostly in the touristic ones. Buyuk feels more original (we were the only tourists in) and is quite cheaper also (50 TL for full package with tips).

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
