Atatürk Arboretum

Valide Sultan Caddesi, Bahcekoy, Sariyer, Istanbul

Daily 8.30–20.00

Founded in 1949, this grand 300-hectare (750-acre) green space (part of the Belgrade Forest) boats a collection of exotic and native trees – including a richly representative collection of oaks (writes David Wheeler). To make your outing even more enjoyable, he recommends you purchase the 500-page guidebook, which although is in Turkish, proves very useful due to its superb species-by-species colour photographs. It’s the best TL10 any tree-fancier could hope to spend.
