“Why we decided to stay and live in Cihangir and Cukurcuma?
Once you move to Istanbul due to work or any other reasons and plan to stay here for a certain time of being, you have to decide where you want to live. Istanbul is large, however, most of the ex-pats stay mostly around Taksim, or Nisantası, Maslak, Maçka, Galata… Each neighborhood has its advantages and disadvantages, each has its own spirit and communities of locals. Based on recommendations of my colleagues I settled in Cukurcuma, south from Taksim, cities hot pot. I am not here with family, so look rather for nice social life than quite a neighborhood, but not an extremely touristic place. And I met ladies from Istanbul Stay and Services, and the story started.
