off to istanbul for a week in april... any recommendations (has to be cheap ) cheers.
in fact, give me a few days and i'll have a list of places for you to go
i know all kinds of turkish people, and intend to go there myself, hopefully in the summer, so no time better than the present to get a list of spots to visit . . . .
excellent city , make sure you do the Basilica Cistern (nr Hagia Sofia), very strange underground water tank. A ferry up the bosphorous to the black sea is good too. To be honest just sitting on the Galata bridge at sunset with a beer allows you to take it all in.
Great tips here...I'm going Istanbulwards tomorrow, and am going to try to get tickets for Fenerbahce-Galatasaray. Should be one hell of an atmosphere at the very least...
yeah i went to see fenerbache play when i was there.. had to get tickets off a tout but wasn;t too difficult and don;t think i got massively ripped off. yeah, crazy atmosphere for sure.
also, definitely, DEFINITELY do the ferry trip up the bosphorous. seriously.
I am going in September and would appreciate any recommendations regarding good, reasonably priced places to stay. I am going to a wedding and I am a gentleman, so won't be staying in hostels. However, I have yet to inherit my millions, so will have to budget.
