Trying to figure out where in the world to study abroad? Here are 8 reasons to pick Istanbul!
One of my favorite parts of Turkish culture is the glorious Turkish bath, or as it is known in Turkish, the hamam.
Çukurcuma is a world of its own. Cafe doorways give way to secret flowering gardens, Turkish pizzerias feature local wine and live jazz, and charming family-run restaurants maintain their place.
Did you know there is an archipelago of islands just off the coast of Istanbul in the Marmara Sea? The Princes Islands’ are the perfect destination for a day excursion.
Unlike some countries where non-Muslims may not enter mosques, mosques are popular tourist destinations in Turkey and visitors are welcome to enter.
When I first came to Turkey, I was surprised to see Turkey’s good luck charm - the evil eye amulet - everywhere I looked. Large evil eye charms hang in peoples’ homes, cars, and offices.
Like many other metropolitan areas, Istanbul has a vibrant neighborhood culture with each neighborhood displaying certain characteristics and catering to a certain demographic.
Istanbul is full of bars, clubs, and even some wine houses, but if you are looking for something a bit different for a Friday night out, try one of these fun alternatives.
