Long Description:
"Kadiköy, on the Asian shore of the Bosphorus just south of Haydarpasa, was known in Byzantine times as Chalcedon.

Today it's a bustling commercial and transportation center, and Asian residential district of the megalopolis of Istanbul.

Kadiköy is untouristy and very Turkish middle class. It's well worth a half-day visit, perhaps combined with a visit to Üsküdar to the north.

Sehir Hatlari, TurYol, and Dentur Avrasya ferryboats cross the Bosphorus regularly from Karaköy (Galata) and Eminönü at the mouth of the Golden Horn to Kadiköy. Most ferries also stop at Haydarpasa Station on the trip to or from Kadiköy.

The voyage is among Istanbul's greatest value-for-money pleasures: a 40-minute intercontinental cruise for about TL3!"
