I am planning to visit istanbul on november first week, and i read its the election time, already there are civil riots and wars in turkey these days, how safe will be the election days, please advise about the atmospehere on november this year :-)
Expect a lot more of these since there's a slump in tourism due to the political climate (and Russian tourists something like 25% down in the Antalya region, etc). It might even get worse, but Turkey is definitely a cheap destination if you're up for it (exchange rate favourable and lira fuel prices have actually dropped, road trips are now a good option) - and haggle massively.
ok, so yesterday I was on Turkish airlines website looking to buy a ticket to get to Greece, I wanted to take Turkish air due to it being a star alliance airline and you get to get a free trip to Istanbul if you have a long lay over.....so I then put off the purchasing the buying of the ticket of instead of yesterday today, price yesterday per person (there are 3 of us) is $1342.30pp and then today jumped into more than $1600.00 pp, I was mind boggled that I did not jump into buying it yesterday so I went to a third party and only paid 1342.30pp, ok so was happy again and bought it before the price jumps up again....ok then I went back to Turkish air site and guess what????? price is back to the original price of 1342.30, after I have already purchased it on Priceline.com,,, ok, what is this, do they know that I am so eager to buy this ticket that they are playing tricks on passengers, just curious if this has happened to anyone, I think they are aware of who ever is looking at their site and eyeing an exact flight and they figure in desperation they will jump into the big hike in price, I don't think that's cool.....any input on this experience of mine?

Hello! I'm planning to visit Bodrum next week on 24th of September. Our plane will land on Bodrum Airport 9 P.M. I wanted to ask what is the easiest and cheapest way to get from airport to hotel. And are there any buses riding at this time in the evening? Our hotel is Bodrum Imperial, it's in Akyarlar. And also you can recommend things to do and places to visit in Bodrum.
Thank you in advance,
