Have an experience of a resident of Istanbul :D

The Exchange

I’ve traveled through the world for years. I believe that to get to know a place you have to experience it like a local. Hang out with the locals, eat like a local, party like a local, feel like a local. I’ve created a community to connect you to the lesser-known corners of Istanbul. You’ll meet like-minded travelers from around the world. Located in Istanbul’s old town – the famous Constantinople aka Sultanahmet.
