Hello, welcome back to our Travel Enthusiast’s Corner!


For the last month of 2023, we shared one of the best destinations to have the holidays on a beach: Sydney, Australia. You can check it out here.

January might seem like a bad month to travel at times, as our wallets might still be recovering from all the expenses we had during the holidays. Well, fortunately, there are affordable destinations that we can still go to. One of the places we can definitely travel to is Istanbul, Turkey.

The low season in Istanbul is between November and March. Off-season is not the only reason it's a great place, but one of its perks is that the top attractions are free. Among these are the Grand Bazaar, the Basilica Cistern, Sultanahmet Square, the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, and Taksim Square. If you would like to visit it, Jess Lee's article has very detailed information about Istanbul.

Has anyone in the community been to Istanbul? Any stories or suggestions you have are welcome to be shared.
