ISTANBUL: Safe for Female Travel? Affordable for Vegetarians!

This video is based on the initial days of my trip to Turkey. I stayed in Dongyang Hotel near Sultan Ahmet area in Istanbul for a few days. You will get an idea about the cost of a hotel or hostel in Istanbul in this video. I visited a supermarket called Sok in the Sirkeci area of Istanbul. I have shared the cost of things I bought from there. If you are also a vegetarian budget traveller like me, this part of the video would be helpful for you. I visited a souvenir shop near Sultan Ahmet called Ottoman Art in Sirkeci, bought some souvenirs from there. Thereafter I met some volunteers who help tourist visiting Istanbul. Watch the interesting conversation with the school girls about India, Bollywood, Amir Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Indian soap operas like Utaran. They revealed some interesting things about their mother and grandmothers in this context ;) I also visited a local mobile sim shop near Sultan Ahmet to find the cheapest mobile networks available in Turkey. Then you'll watch interesting sessions with Turkish & Afghan fruit sellers and at the end, you will see me travelling in Istanbul tram to Kabatas for visiting Taksim Square. There also I met an interesting tour guide who helped me reach Taksim Square and understand a few basics about Turkey.

This Turkey travel vlog we are asking the question, is turkey safe? Many people ask us if Turkey is a safe country and although we have never had an issue here Alex's parents did have a bad experience last time they came. We wanted to change their perception and show that Turkey is a safe country to travel and that it was just an isolated incident 32 years ago. This vlog in Istanbul we took the local ferry from the Asian side to the European side. We visited the basilica cistern under the Hagia Sophia before going to the Grand Bazaar. After we went for a delicious turkish street food the fish sandwich (balik ekmek) from Emin Usta before going to Galata, a hip area with the iconic Galata Tower. Finally, we went for a few drinks on top of a rooftop bar massive mixed kebab from Dürümzade.

Welcome to the official Travel Beans YouTube channel! On this channel, you’ll find a variety of travel and vlog content, in which you’ll see us in places like Thailand, Japan, USA, Slovenia, and more.

In 2017 we left home with just £500 in our bank account and a dream to make a sustainable travel lifestyle happen! We are now living our dream as digital nomads and want to inspire you to create your own story, whatever it may be!

After 5 years of aimless, yet enjoyable, backpacking around the world we found ourselves in New York City battling with depression. At this point, we decided to go home and confront this problem head on. After 6 tough months at home we decided to go away again, but this time with a goal in mind.. to turn travel into a lifestyle.

Our time spent battling depression has influenced our outlook on life dramatically! We are now traveling the world in search of what makes us happy. In our vlogs, we talk openly and honestly about our travel experiences, the digital nomad life and depression. We hope our videos can help to inspire you to create a life that makes you happy!

IS TURKEY SAFE? ????????

Is Turkey safe? Based on my own experience travelling around western Turkey for a month, I offer my thoughts to other travellers.

istanbul | what's it like and is it safe? (SPOILER: it is!)

According to, “terrorists are very likely to try and carry out attacks in Turkey” - a statement that made us just a tad nervous before our trip to Istanbul in March. Therefore, we wanted to share how we found the city, how safe we felt as tourists, and also a few more insights to help you make the most of your trip.

Please note that these are our thoughts based on our own personal experiences. We think we’re probably more relaxed than others due to living in London which is also deemed as a high risk destination at the moment. You should absolutely do your research before travelling anywhere with these warnings and of course take precautions to keep you and your party safe at all times.

Is travel within Turkey restricted? We have been living in Turkey now for almost 8 months and answer all of these questions and more about whether you should travel to Turkey right now during Covid-19 and how these new lockdown rules will affect you!

With Turkey being one of the few countries open for travel during the coronavirus we wanted to update you on the new Turkey lockdown rules and whether it is still worth it to travel to Turkey in 2020?

UPDATE 2: Tourists will be able to stay out beyond curfew (which is only on weekends) and will not be subjected to a ticket, however, almost all stores and all restaurants will be closed after 8pm, so there won't be much to do.

I wanted to visit Turkey ever since I saw it Bollywood movies like Ek Tha Tiger, Dil Dhadkne Do, Baby and Guru’s Iconic Song Mayya Mayya. Being a fan of the Turkish drama series Fareah, I was always amazed by the beauty of each state of Turkey. I got to explore 2 places in Turkey, Gaziantep, and Istanbul. Beautiful is an understatement for what I witnessed.

The current currency exchange rate is 1lira = Rs12. Uber is the best way to communicate from one place to other, Vodafone network works fine there of you have roaming.

Here is a list of places, you just can’t miss out in Istanbul-

- Private Yacht Breakfast at Bosphorus
- Grand Bazaar
- Pera Street Market
- Hagia Sophia
- Breakfast at Emirgan Sutis

Is Istanbul Safe in 2020?

Spoiler Alert: It is.

This place that we have called home for the majority of the last 3 years is amazing, and we've never felt unsafe even once. Thank you for being amazing, Turkey.
