This city is bigger than many countries. That means there are multiple districts, neighbourhoods, and streets full of local discoveries, resources, and people like you! You don’t have to live in the trendy part of Istanbul to have cool corners worth visiting. You also don’t want to trek to the far corners of the city if you can do what you need to manage your day-to-day living in your own neighbourhood.

Give us the scoop about where you live and hang out in Istanbul. Maybe there is great street art near you. Perhaps there are parks and green spaces you escape to when you want to decompress. How do you manage the cost of living here and make your money and resources go further? Do you use specific apps to help you save time on everyday tasks?


We know Istanbul is a different city if you are single, part of a couple, or have an extended family here, so tell us about your experience.
