From New York and Rome to Beijing and Tokyo, the great cities of the West and the East offer two very different kinds of wow, but where East meets West in Istanbul, you just marvel, gasp and enjoy.
This week Lorna travels to Istanbul to explore the beauty of this historic city. Not only is it a melting pot of different cultures, but it also boasts great food, art and spectacular architecture. Even in modern parts of the city you are surrounded by historic treasures.
Almost 40 million tourists visit the country each year, which is no surprise with Turkey possessing 13 UNESCO world heritage sites, and a heady fusion of food and flavours.
Lorna also checks out all the perks of the brand new Turkish Airlines Lounge, which has a little something for every traveler. From experiencing the perfect cup of Turkish coffee, working on your golf swing, or sitting down with a good book in the library, the Turkish Airlines Lounge is sure to keep you rested and entertained.
Join Lorna as she explores each corner of Istanbul, from the Blue Mosque to the grand bazaar, on Top Billing this Thursday at 7:30pm on SABC3.
