My last day at istanbul. This time I stayed in asian side (Its really really far from airport) The hostel Juliet room and kitchen is really good located near by beach and park. I just roam around near by places which was beautiful and less explored by the common touristic bucket list. Night I done packing and slept early.
Last day... I had my breakfast and did check-out and left for airport. It was 1 hr journey. Again I crossed Bosphorus river. Beautiful journey though the bridge which connects Europe to Asia. Istanbul airport is really amaing with a lot of entertinment programs for the travellers. Well yeah thats the tata bye bye to turkey.
Tips: 1. Don't change all your euro/dollar to TL. few shops will take euro and u can sell it fo the rate which google shows.
2. Booking.com will not be accessible from turkey. Block the rooms and pay at the property. Or check the availability and talk with the property. you will get it for less cost.
3. If possible make the long transit by bus. you can save room stay for a night, and you can see the places through out your journey.
4. It is the safest place and nothing to worry, still beware of fraud activities especially in istanbul taksim and sultanahmet area.
5. Plan for a 14-15 days trip. Then you can cover almost all important places in turkey.
