Locals Share Their Istanbul Experiences – Ekrem Başarır
Posted By Erlend Geerts On July 15, 2013 @ 4:12 pm In Locals Share | No Comments
Every month we ask an Istanbul local the same ten questions. This way you can hear firsthand what they love and hate about the city, and learn about the best places to wine, dine and shop in town.
Today Ekrem Başarır, aged between 26-35 and active as a manager, shares his Istanbul secrets.
I live in Ulus. For locals it’s a very convenient place to live due to its central location. For tourists it’s a bit out of the way though. To give you an idea, it is the area up the hills across SuAda .
As many locals would tell you, a day without traffic.
I would take them to the classics, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. And for an original experience, I would take them for a drive over the Bosphorus Bridge. The view from there is just breathtaking.
I don’t have a certain store, mall, or area I shop from. I just look for fair priced quality items.
What is more precious than memories of a nice time spent in Istanbul? But if it has to be something tangible, I’m a big advocate for one (or more) refrigerator magnets of Istanbul’s major sightseeing spots.
My favorite restaurant is Sun Set Grill & Bar in Ulus . The food is great, and so is the view.
Since I don’t drink alcohol, I can`t comment on this.
I’m a big fan of the Sun Set bar in Ulus, as I mentioned before.
I love the food, and I hate the traffic.
