I am planning on moving to Turkey...

Hello, merhaba,

If anyone could help me out , with information on Istambul and anything at all, I am kinda of lost here.
I really wanna go there, but I dont know where to start.  I have lived in different countries before and I do know a few ppl in Turkey, but mostly I would be on my own. 
Any reply or help, you be mostly appreciated.

Thank you.

it might be good to give a website but noone knows more than a person who lives there, so a person who lives in istanbul should tell the good sides and bad sides of it.

Istanbul can be expensive, however if you were to live in one of the smaller towns within istanbul (bakirkoy for example) i would imagine it would be far cheaper as well as not being too far from taksim and the city centre. As far as i know you will require a 12 month residental visa, which you can buy from local goverment/police station and also you will need to get another if you want to work in turkey, which again is available from the same place.
