Welcome to another post of helping a reader travel! As I’ve mentioned before, I have not been to every destination (unfortunately), but do get questions from friends and other blog readers on all sort of travel destination questions. Thus far, we’ve been able to help other readers travel to Maui, The Greek Islands, Pacific Coast Highway, Argentina /Buenos Aires, Costa Rica, Cape Cod & The Islands, Iceland, Geneva, Canadian Rockies, Rome, Israel, Peru, Las Vegas, Stockholm, Chicago, Paris, Hanoi, Austin, Puerto Rico, Bruges, and Salzburg.
So this weeks travel destination includes Istanbul. I received the following email from reader Chris:
“I was looking into some mileage runs for the end of the year, and saw the Istanbul deals floating around. While not the greatest cpm, I’ll take the small hit to visit a city I eventually planned on visiting anyway. Any activities/foods to eat are welcomed. If it makes for a good story, I’ll do it/eat it. If it helps, I’m in my late 20s.”
If you’ve ever been to Istanbul and have any recommendations, let’s help out reader Chris by commenting below. I believe many readers are interested in Istanbul and are probably interested in good hotels to stay at. There are so many chain (and non chain hotels), but I believe location in Istanbul is very important. What are some things to do during the day, and as Chris requested, good restaurant recommendations?
I have yet to visit Istanbul, but it is on my short list of cities to visit.
Also, if you have any upcoming travel where you need some help, feel free to email me at email@example.com to be a featured “Help a Reader Travel” Monday special. Thanks!
