Solo travel experience

I had a bad experience in Instanbul solo traveling. Got groped on the metro as soon as I was on and so many guys wanting to get my attention on the streets and telling me I was beautiful in a very exaggerated exhausting way. Istanbul is beautiful but I would never recommend traveling there alone as a woman.

Solo travel experience

I spent a month in Istanbul. I didn’t have any issues. No men harassing me. Actually they were all nice and polite. People will try to sell you stuff on the street or ask you to come into their stores, just keep walking. I do that in every city/country I am in. Public transportation is safe. I also used BiTaksi and Uber. I loved Istanbul so much.

Solo travel experience

I have travelled solo to Istanbul three times and always felt safe. I went out and night for dinner, drinks and shopping. I stayed in different areas and the only one I didn't like was in Taksim due to the amount of tourists. Initially Istanbul did not strike me as anything amazing but it has become one of my favorite cities in the world world. Just so easy to travel alone, catch public transport to get around and also visit the suburbs, shop etc.

Solo travel experience

I travelled to Istanbul solo back in June and had no issues at all. People do try to get you to come into their shop but that's solely for the purpose of business. I stayed at the Cheers Hostel and they are the best.

Solo travel experience

I recommend visiting the Balat neighborhood! Such a nice place, colorful buildings, sweet and nice cafes! And wander around the small streets and neighborhoods around the main street Istiklal. I wandered around and then made my way back to Istiklal street to easily get back to where I was staying.
