We departed from KLIA at about 12.50 am and after a 10-hour flight , we arrived at Istanbul Ataturk Airport at 6.30 am local time. The weather was 12 degree Celcius. After going through the immigration process, we performed our subuh prayer at the carosel area. Our bus was already waiting outside the airport to bring us to enjoy the cruise along the Bosphorus Strait. It was cold and my daughters were shivering as they didn't take out their jackets from the luggage. The luggage was tucked deep inside the bus luggage compartment.
We then visited the vast Topkapi Palace which left us in awe due to its beauty and classicness. I felt a little sombre as I stepped into the room where the swords of the Prophet’s sahabahs were shown. There were MANY tourists like we were in a shopping area.
Thank you for reading and visit me again.
