Istanbul is located between Europe and Asia or you could simply say it is in Eurasia. With this in mind, if you want to experience the merging of culture of Europe and Asia, Istanbul is the ultimate place to be.
The mixture of various cultures from the ancient past to present gives Istanbul a beauty you can’t compare anywhere. Let’s thank the Byzantine Empire and other foreign influences for giving us hundreds of amazing establishments, paintings, cuisine and more. And just imagine how awesome it would be if you can spend $50 USD per day only like nomadicmatt in Istanbul.
In order for you to enjoy Istanbul’s best, visit the place during the months of September to November.
