TURKEY (FUN + CHEAP) – (#bachelorstrip #Pakiboyz) – (All in 80000/-)
So me and my friend decided to have a TYPICAL BACHELORS TRIP before he enters the next big stage(shaadi to the love of his life ofcourse!); after a needed thought process we chose Istanbul, Turkey (Why? valid Schengen/US visa, one city tour, good nightlife, local friends).🕺🕺🍾🥂❤🇹🇳
Bought our tickets through a deal on Turkish airline costing 46000, plus the additional amount for visa. Flew straight to Istanbul for the most amazing adventure lasting 6 days and 5 nights. To enjoy Istanbul completely, divide your time between taksim and sultahnemet. First 2 nights we stayed at the famous "Sultan Hostel" (cheapest hostel in the city, with people from around the world) on sultahnemet while the remaining ones were at IDYLIC hotel at Taksim. For both we spent 6000/- per person LOL!)😁😁
In Sultahnemet, we were typical tourists ! Visited Blue mosque, Hagia Sofia, Spice Bazaar, Hammam (the most amazing experience, went twice and not regret it once, go to the ones which allow you to choose a gender or else you know better ) Bosporus cruise, lots of cobbled street walks, Topkaki palace, nearby museums etc. The best thing you can do is buy a museum pass (185 lira), it is quiet cheap if you want to visit all these places. For the cruise try going to Bosporus and buy it from there only as its cheaper. After being all touristy and meeting loads of South Americans, it was time to move to Taksim.
THE BEST THREE NIGHTS 🥂 in Taksim ! I can not write everything down but I have to admit, Isteklal street has one of the best night life in the world ! Great Clubs/Pubs/ Restaurants etc. During the day, if you wake up early, you can enjoy shopping or nearby scenery and then head over to the clubs after 10:00. (easiest mode of transport is to buy 1 tram/bus card and use it for all! For the whole city)
– 58000 was spent on ticket/visa/accommodation, 22000 was spent in food/shopping/tours etc.💰
– FOOD -Turkey has one of the best cuisines, if you ask them to make it spicy (tuntuni, iskendar kebab, doner,corns on the road,HAFIZ MUSTAFA CHEESE KUNAFA) 🍢
– Great culture and people ! ❤
Long story short, BEST ONE WEEK IN ISTANBUL !🇹🇳
