    Things to bring

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: You will be walking around Istanbul, visiting many places. A sports bag to carry your personal items will be very helpful.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Istanbul has 4 seasons of weather. It can be very hot or very cold depending on the season. Check the weather report before you arrive and bring suitable clothes.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Everything can be found in stores, try to minimize what you bring.

    Photo Equipment: Batteries are easily found so you don't need to carry a big stock with you.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are not much camping/outdoor possibility. However, you can go to Prince islands for a swim if you come in summer time. Bring your swimming suit if you want to do so.

    Miscellaneous: Travel light !!! You can find almost everything you will need at reasonable prices in Istanbul.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you're planning to visit numerous mosques - wear shoes that you can slip off and on easily instead of lace or buckle,makes for quicker entry and leaving - and make sure they're comfortable - you'll be doing a lot of walking

    Miscellaneous: I was able to use my cell phone there as if I was in Spain, at home. This was possible due to an agreement that my supplier (Movistar) had with a turlish supplier (Turkcell). I could call back home without prefix, though I had to call international to speak or SMS with turkish friends...
    So ask your supplier at home first, before coming!

    My cell with Turkcell
