How expensive is Istanbul, Turkey - Budget Backpacking

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
In this video we show you how much things cost in Istanbul, this video was filmed in December 2020.
- We start by the transportation from the airport to Sultanahmet area which is where the majority of tourist attractions are located and it costs 30L p/p.
- Food is another big expense that is impossible to cut on, everybody needs to eat 🤪, but in Istanbul food prices are very reasonable ranging between 15L to 25L for a nice big meal, there's more expensive options but we don't go to this places often since the cheaper ones are still good quality food.
- Renting an airbnb apartment with a kitchen can also be a good option since the food in the supermarkets is also very affordable.
- For transportation in and around the city it's best to buy an Istanbul card that costs 10L per card and then you just have to top it up and can be used on trips on buses, ferries, metros and trams so one card works for all the public transportation.
- Prices of clothes and shoes are also very reasonable here, don't expect the best quality products but still very good for the price you're paying, for example a winter jacket can cost 100L +/- 10USD.
And that's pretty much it, if you have any question please leave it on a comment below.
Stay safe everyone!

Okay. Fellow Malaysians. Whatever it is, Cuti-cuti Malaysia FIRST!
Our country needs our help first. We need to help our economy first and foremost. Plus, our country's measure in controlling the pandemic is one of the top best in the world. Stay in the country, stay safe.
The economy's performance is really down to us. You can bet our rich folks will step on the plane once international flights are fully opened. Will they bring back the virus to our country? You betcha!
