The advantages of staying in Istanbul have long been obvious to travelers. A trip to an exotic warm country does not require a visa. The cost of the resorts is quite affordable for people with any budget. The flight is short, even kids can easily tolerate it. The climate is quite mild, the quality of tourist services is high, the infrastructure is well developed, there is enough public transport and it is convenient to use it.
One trip can kill three birds with one stone: see historical sights, do very interesting shopping and relax on the beach. If you are going on this universal trip, you will be interested in Istanbul hotels with their own beach or at least with spacious pools.
