Explore Istanbul

Welcome to Explore Istanbul

Explore Istanbul is a site set up by Demet & Luke with the first post created in July 2017. Demet has lived in Istanbul since 2011 and Luke has visited Istanbul over 17 times from England. This enables us to view the city as both a tourist and local which we believe will give you great insight and information.

To use Explore Istanbul, please read the following:

1) To view places please search for a name or select the region or category to view all results within that class. Here you will find information on the Galata Tower or Grand Bazaar for example.

2) To view guides on getting visas, exchanging currency or getting around Istanbul please click on "Istanbul Blog" and look through the available information. Thank you, we hope you enjoy what you read.
