GUYS, ISTANBUL IS AMAZING!! Have you ever been? If not, this video will convince you to go.
**Watch until the end to see how I almost didn’t make it legally into Istanbul**
A few days ago, I spent the wildest 24 hours in Istanbul and budgeted myself with $100 to see how much fun I could have in the city.
This was my 4th visit to Istanbul, and every time I go back, I love it more and more. It might be the most electric and vibrant city in the world.
This is the 5th sequel to my “$100 in 24 Hours” series — but I think it’s the best one because Istanbul is MUCH cheaper than the previous few cities (Hong Kong and Barcelona)… The affordability enabled me to go ALL OUT on a $100 budget — kebabs, kumpir, coffee, baklava, tea, shisha, Efes beer and TONS MORE!
Lastly, the fact that I got into Istanbul, Turkey is a MIRACLE … Have you heard about the Turkey/USA mutual visa ban?! Just 3 hours before my plane arrived in Istanbul (literally), all U.S citizens were banned to visit Turkey indefinitely (the Turkish government mimicked the U.S.’s ban last week which prohibited Turkish citizens from entering the USA). I read this news while sitting on the runway in Tel Aviv, and I was so nervous that I was gonna get detained, deported and/or questioned by the Turkish immigration, but I made it in safely!!! I think I was the last American to get a visa on arrival. I hope this stupid visa ban goes away, and both U.S. and Turkish citizens are able to visit each other’s country again. I hate politics.
