My friend and me just booked a flight to Istanbul. Little later, we realised that the "Eid al-Adha" will start 4th of October. Do you have any ideas how to find a place to join the festivities? Unfortunately, we do not have any private contacts in Istanbul. Furthermore, could you recommend a nice accommodation? We prefer sth small (e.g. B&B) in a quiet area not too far from the main attractions. We do not need a luxury room. It should be clean with a private bathroom but not shabby. Do you have any (insider) suggestions as regards:
- cultural activities, - must-see attractions (parks, castles, museums, mosques, boat trip to the islands etc?) - restaurants/cafes?
All your ideas are very welcome !! Thus, I am looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks in advance and best regards from Frankfurt am Main/Germany Cheers Christina
