    1st Time Traveler to Turkey

    Will be traveling to Istanbul and Ephesus in May and would like to hear comments regarding the political climate and general feelings about visiting Americans.

    I have been in Istanbul for 2 days.It's fun to read the comments from other travelers while I'm in the city. The highlights for me- a 'bath' and a sunny morning at the Istanbul Modern,having got there on the very efficient tram from my hotel near the Grand Bazaar.This tram goes across a bridge from the old city to new.Both sides of the bridge were lined with people fishing- fish that they can eat because the water is clean!I did go on the de riguer tours,not nearly so pleasing.

    We visited Istanbul in March 2009.  We absolutely loved it.  The people were wonderful!  Try to take the Bosphorus tour up to the Black Sea.  I think this was our favorite trip experience.  It's not really a tour just a boat ride up and 3 hours at the top to explore and eat/drink.  We also liked the Istanbul Modern.
