Turns out Istanbul is not only known as the best place to go for “hair transplants and boob job” but it’s also a shopping paradise! We bought so much that we need to buy a new luggage! We definitely like this city the most among the 15 cities (5 countries) we visited over the last 5 weeks! We will definitely be back!
Although Google says it’s 99% Muslim here, yet unlike Egypt, the vibe is so different: there’s way more women on the streets! This city is vibrant, lively and very developed, with lots of high rise buildings and great food.
I was so surprised to find strip bars and see a few trans walking around in the Taksim area where we stayed!
