Now every travel agency you see in the street will be offering packages to Istanbul in their shop windows (it's also one of the top destinations in online agencies such as Lastminute, Viajar, Muchoviaje and others), and almost everybody knows someone who's been there or is planning to. In this sense, all the positive comments that we hear from our friends and relatives encourage more and more people to go there.

I hope to visit Istanbul someday soon as well
You will enjoy it, hope to see you here! Btw I'll be in Barcelona in 5 months.

Turkey's Most Important City: A Pleasant Surprise

Wow! I was surprised how colorful, architecturally aesthetic, and culturally liberal/open-minded this city happens to be. I've been longing to go to Turkey ever since and this just makes me want to go there even more.

BTW, what's Istanbul's population?

Everywhere spanish speaking people or groups of tourists. Why is Istabul so in there now?
I've also sensed this trend... and it's great! I love Spanish people.. They are warm and kind people..

I also welcomed two fellas from Barcelona last winter with one of my friend in Istanbul... They were from Brazil and Argentina originally and they also told me that Istanbul is quiet a famous destination in Spain. We went to skiing at Kartepe with these guys and they even appeared at Fenerbahce TV, that tv guy literally jumped on them for a football chat when he learned that they were from Brazil and Argentina... It was fun...

and right after that skiing trip, I've came to Australia Perth and welcomed a temperature of 45 C! It was quiet a change for me...
