How To: Save Money On Your Trip To Istanbul

  As a student on a budget, i don't have the luxury of planning luxurious summer vacations like salary earners would, so i always look out for the best available travel deals and still make the most of it.  I promised to create a post on how to save money and spend less cash when traveling to Istanbul in one of my travel posts. Below are some tips based on my own experience.
 So you've decided to visit Istanbul, If you need a visa to Turkey and you don't have a valid OECD member countries or Schengen visa, apply to the Turkish embassy with all required documents stated on the embassy's website. If you have an OECD member country or a Schengen valid visa, apply online here (terms apply).
 Now you have your visa and ready to visit Istanbul...

Personal Style: Colorful Summer Dress At Akmerkez Istanbul

 Hello lovelies, how was your week? Mine was great, I'm still touring Istanbul, such a lovely big city, so many places to visit. Yesterday we were supposed to go for bosphorus sea cruise but it was late and we didn't want to go for the night one because we haven't gone for any before, it would be more interesting in the afternoon to see all the historic places and enjoy the view before enjoying the night view. We decided to tour the Etiler neighbourhood of Istanbul and we ended at Akmerkez located on Nispetiye Road. I chose this colorful summer dress i bought from a turkish store in Ukraine because its very comfortable and perfect for touring the city :)

Travel And Lifestyle: A Walk Around Taksim Square And Istiklal Cadessi

 Yesterday we practically spent the greater part of the day on food and fruits, lol it made us lazy to go out because we were still resting from our day out at 212AVM. When we finally dragged ourselves out of bed, we decided to explore Taksim square and Istiklal cadessi around 8pm, instead of going far. I wanted the easiest and most comfortable outfit, so i settled for a tee, jeans and my claire's heart shaped geek glasses.

Travel And Lifestyle: 212 Power Outlet Istanbul Shopping Festival 2014

 Merhaba lovelies! that means hello in Turkish :) This is my first time visiting Istanbul, i usually spend some hours during transit but never visited the city. I've always wanted to visit Turkey and when i learnt about the 2014 Istanbul shopping festival via a travel and lifestyle blog, i immediately opened the Turkish airlines website, fortunately for me they had special promo fares for people traveling to Turkey during the Istanbul shopping festival from June 7 to 29 including 50kg free baggage(with some terms and conditions). This offer motivated me to get serious about visiting Turkey, experiencing the shopping festival is really not a bad start for the summer.
