The Cost Of Living In Istanbul

The good news is the cost of living in Istanbul is about thirty percent less than it is in New York City. That’s a big savings when it comes to finding a place to live. In fact, some of the apartments in Istanbul are three times less money for the same amount of space in NYC. Food costs are about half the cost of NYC food, but the utility bills seem to average the same as NYC utility charges. The shopping in Istanbul is where the savings add up. Clothing and food are a real bargain at the bazaars so when all things are considered Istanbul is a moderately priced city that has all the amenities of other big cities around the world. Hotel prices are lower and the cost of traveling between cities is much lower so that means there’s more money available to enjoy the great restaurants and the action-packed nightlife.
