Since this is my first travel and i have like 7 days off so going to asia would require more time. Asia is my next destination. Istanbul seems like very interesting city where east meets west therefore there is alot of place to go to that would be interesting.





Look at this video. :)


This city looks amazing

We were supposed to go to Istanbul from school but they changed the destination to Athena, Greece because Istanbul is too dangerous at the moment because of ISIS..

in 2 weeks. But it isn't that serious.. It's with school so they try to be extremly safe with students you know. They are scared of what happened in the past in Turkey

although turkey is not the best choice for tourism, just going solo with a good stuffed pocket will be a hell of an experience

I'm living in Istanbul. Our city hosts many cultures and also no ISIS here.
World media shows us like monsters. The fact that we are welcoming society.

For OP, I recommend you visit the European side. You can get across the ferry to Uskudar and very nice air of the bosphorus.

Some districts might be dangerous for our city. Don't go these places;
Maltepe Gülsuyu, Güngören, Karagümrük, Esenyurt-Örnektepe mahallesi, Esenler-Karabayır, Küçükçekmece Kanarya, Şişli Kuştepe, Bağcılar, Beyoğlu,Tarlabaşı, Okmeydanı, Fikirtepe, Sarıgöl, Hacihusrev, Gaziosmanpaşa Gazı mahallesi Küçükköy, Bayrampaşa.

Safe places to go where the quality;
Bebek, Nişantaşı, Arnavutköy, Kadıköy, Teşvikiye, Yeşilköy, Moda, Çengelköy(Kandilli), Kabataş(Fındıklı sırtları), Üsküdar(Salacak)

In these days, one thing is popular on tourists. Don't go to the nightclub with an woman you just met. She will take place as previously negotiated.
They want high fees to drink beverages, even a glass of beer can be $100 or more. They cause problems if you don't pay the money.

Finally, i want to say;
Before leaving on vacation, get the phone number of the consulate.
I hope you enjoyed the holiday, have fun :)

Thank you for your reply. It got me bit scared at first but did some thinking and research about the scams and stories. The good weight up the bad so i decided i am still going. Will be new experience for me and i am looking forward to it.
