Published bi-monthly, The Guide carries useful info on hotels, restaurants, cafes, museums and amusements, and shops in Istanbul, as well as articles on topics of interest to both visitors and locals.
It always has lots of pretty color photos, and useful details such as consulate phone numbers, hospital info, and what to see and do with kids.
The cover price is less than US$2, but copies are provided free of charge by many hotels and other tourist-related businesses.
Besides The Guide Istanbul, there are Guides to Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum, published less frequently than The Guide Istanbul.
Look for The Guide when you arrive in Turkey. For more info:
