There is no doubt that Istanbul is a beautiful city that beauty itself boasts to be coupled with its name whenever Istanbul is mentioned. Yes, Istanbul is that attractive city accordingly and in line with all the standards, but...
Some may need one minute to adapt to the lifestyle in Istanbul, while others may take years.
Istanbul is a city that makes you love it despite all the drawbacks such as congestion and the high cost of living.
We would like to draw your attention to some matters lest those drawbacks would be an obstacle for you if you moved on to live in the most beautiful city in the world, herein inter alia:
Each city has a problem, Istanbul’s problem is congestion.
You cannot guess where and how congestion comes out; when we say "there is no congestion now," we may stay for hours in
So it is better to make sure that your home is near to your workplace, and in the same side of the city (European or Asian), otherwise, it is possible to spend most of your time awaiting the congestion.
If you have children, so choose a house near the children's playing yards or within a protected residential complex to provide those games yards and safe places to drive their bikes and small toy cars.
If you do not prefer residential complexes, then make sure that there is a garden or a place for playing in the vicinity.
Because of the overcrowding in Istanbul, and because time is precious, be careful to secure your daily needs from a nearby place because having your home near a market is a key to facilitate your daily life.
Make sure that the public transportations means are available around
The availability of rapid transportation such as trams and metros is a way of saving money and time compared to transporting your own car. That would avoid you the trouble of parking, particularly when going to the beautiful tourist places such as Taksim and Kadıköy.
Who visits this city, for the first time, wherever he goes and tours, his first and last plan will be to discover its landmarks and enrich his memory with its beauty.
The tourism in Istanbul, taking advantage of visiting its places and history that is written in every nook and cranny, enjoying the fresh air of Bosphorus that contacts the hearts and tells the story of the past and present; and spending time contemplating its beauty are things behooves us to do.
