In my opinion,this is one of the nicest and busiest part of old İstanbul where you can come close to any nation fm any part of Turkey and the rest of the world.Very crowded and noisy! Here you will get the smell of the fish fried&grilled on the small boats attached to the shore which will make you hungry.Do not wait,just give a try and you will like it.

There are several boats at the pier and they sell bread with salad, onions and grilled and filletted mackerel. Cheap and tasty. You sit on small stools at small tables and you eat between nearly all Turkish people.

Go here on a Saturday afternoon and you'll be faced with so many people it's overwhelming. There's such a buzz on this pier with the smell of 'balik ekmek' you can't help but eat this delicious fish bread in front of the fish boats as many of the locals love to do. A 360 degree view gives you spectacular sights from the Galata Bridge across to the tower, the Golden Horn, Spice Bazaar and the new mosque and across to Asia. It's a spectacular place in the heart of Istanbul, but be sure to take it all in and sit on the steps people watching. One of my favourite past times.

I just love Eminonu. We went there one morning to take the Bosphorus ferry boat. On our arrival back in the afternoon we explored the area. There's a lovely book shop next to the pier. We visited the Spice Bazaar and then went around the back streets full of shops, street hawkers and people. There are many coffee shops and restaurants where you can eat. Eminonu is just so lively.

Do one of the 90 minute cruises of the Bosphorus visiting both the Europe and Asia side. Only 12TL. Don't expect much of a commentary, but it's a pleasant of gaining perspective about the place.
