Kadikoy Nostalgic Tram
Most tourists are aware of the nostalgic tram on Istiklal Caddesi that runs from Taksim to Tunel in Istanbul. They may know that there is another one across the Bosphorus on the Asian side. Few take the ferry to see this one though. Unlike the tram on the European side that uses refurbished equipment, the Asian side employs cars from other railways. It's a small circular route running through the core of the shopping section near the ferry docks.
