    Not worth it.


    Staying at Vezir Hotel is somewhat unsatisfactory. You are getting the accommodation because location is center to most of the attractions but restrooms are not up to the mark. They charged me extra US$15 for children, loose telephone connection etc.

Visiting Istanbul in November

by marwagamal

I planning to visit Istanbul during the last two weeks of November 2010. Will there be sales at that time? Will the grand bazaar be open during this period?

The bazaar is open all year around so don´t worry.

The Grand Bazaar is closed on Sunday.

Yes, the Grand Bazar will be open, but there certainly will not be any sales. The Grand Bazar is a horrible place to shop as the vendors have very high rents, meaning they have to charge more, MUCH more for the goods. The area outside around the bazar is a little cheaper.

There are seasonal sales in Istanbul all year round in different city malls. Grand Bazaar is open all year round, too. You can dicker over prices there.

The grand Bazzar is a "gotta see"
But don't kid yourself about bargains
We were told it this way
"Traders in the grand bazzar have been bargaining for 3,000 years -how long have you".
Having said that there is some great stuff in there and the Turkish delights in Istanbul are to kill for
have fun and only bring home great memories

Travel Tips for Istanbul

The new Turkish lira

by hekate

The new Turkish lira (YTL) is in circulation as of 1 January 2005. Both the old and new Turkish lira banknotes will be in circulation until the end of 2005. After that only the new lira will stay in circulation. According to the brochure on the picture, if you withdraw money from ATM you would probably get a combination of the old and the new bills.

The difference between the old and new Turkish lira is that they had cut out 6 zeros (000 000), which means that 1 000 000 TL = 1 YTL.

Thus, the price for one and the same item had to be quoted (but it is not as far as I had seen) both in new and old Turkish liras. This basically means that, for example, you will have to pay either 13 000 000 TL or 13 YTL.

This could make you feel a bit strange but for me it was OK since we had denomination of the currency in Bulgaria in 1999. The only difference is that we had cut off only 3 zeros :)

What you see on the picture is the old bill of 250 000 TL, the old coin 250 000 TL and the new coin of 25 kurus. Kurus is the equivalent of the cent, i.e. 1 YTL = 100 YKr.

Istanbul Squalor - Old v. New

by mrclay2000

Istanbul is ever growing and everchanging. New Turks from the countryside come here looking for work, which as often as not means the direct sale of perfume and other unnecessaries. From a vast quarry of building supplies, the wrecks and ruins of lately detonated buildings supply timber and trappings for hovels and shanties. Centuries-old structures are scarcely immune. Note this view from the Galata Tower. One of the towers from the curtain wall surrounding the old Genoese enclave of Pera has been totally thrown open, now a roost suitable only for pigeons. In the open space adjacent, young Turks practice soccer between two modern buildings.

Meet the sunset on Galata Tower

by BorisL

Galata Tower , XIV century Genoese tower 67 meters height is a best place to see the sunset in Istanbul. From there you can see most of the areas of this huge city. Europe and Asia, the Golden Horn and Bosphorus, the minarets of the grand mosques, sultan's palace, bysantine acqueduct, tile roofs of Beyoglu, new and modern suburbs, bridges, countless boats and ferries.
This is a view that you can't afford yourself to miss.

Koprulu Library

by traveloturc

The Köprülü Library was the first independent library to be established in the Ottoman period. This librray was built in 1662 by Köprülü Fazýl Ahmed Paþa as an addition to the mosque comples originally built by Köprülü Mehmed Paþa in Çemberlitaþ. The original collection which consists of works donated by the Köprülü family has remained relatively stable with around 2775 manuscripts and 1508 printed books. This primarily manuscript librray is subordinated to the Süleymaniye Library. A published three-volume catalogue describing this collection is available.
