WHAT TO PACK?

what-to-pack
Sunglasses - Whether it's to blend in with the stylish Istanbul locals or simply to protect your eyes from the fierce Turkish sun, you're going to need a solid pair of shades.

Sensible walking shoes - Many of Turkey's sights are best explored on foot, so a pair of comfortable shoes is a must.

A headscarf - Some of the world's most amazing mosques are to be found here, and if you're female then it's customary to cover up your hair.

An extra suitcase - Whether it's spices, carpets or home goods, shopping temptation runs at an all time high here. And that's before you've even set foot in Istanbul's Grand Bazaar!

A two-pin adapter plug - To keep your electrical essentials juiced up.
