I've been to Istanbul for roughly fifteen days. I have always relied on my accomodation's WiFi for all my data uses. For navigating purposes, I simply download the required maps onto my Maps.me app for offline navigation. Do you require one on-the-go?

15 days in Istanbul alone? Any other cities you would recommend for Turkey?

Yes, it was a solo trip, and Turkey was the last leg of my six month journey roughly two years ago.

I was primarily in and about Istanbul, so I do not have much recommendations to give. I spent most of my days seeing the sights, buying souvenirs, sampling the local delicacies, and chatting up the locals on current affairs. This took place a couple of weeks or about a month or two after the attempted coup, so I was very interested.

Turkey is a big country. I did it by by flying to Athens first, got to Kusadasi by island ferry hopping, Cappadocia by coach, flew to Istanbul and back to Singapore.

I don't really like Istanbul. The opulent palaces are cool but didn't resonate with me.

Ephesus was cooler for me but maybe cos we paid for a guide.

Post-coup Cappadocia was my fav though. So much to do.

Did ten days solo in Turkey three years ago:
Four days in Istanbul
Two in Goreme (Cappadocia)
One in Pamukkale (the 'cotton castle')
Two in Selcuk (Ephesus)
One in Izmir

Only stayed a night in Izmir, so as to be able to catch an early flight to Greece the next morning. There really isn't much to see there. Since you have fifteen days, you could do away with Izmir and maybe see if you could check out the South-East ?

Good for a relaxed one-day stop if you are on the way to/from Ephesus or Goreme (Cappadocia). Visited Pamukkale in mid-2015, and enjoyed it.
