Japan has been one of the most challenging vacations for me to plan, not because there weren’t enough resources available to help, rather because there were way too many. It’s actually super easy to feel overwhelmed when going through the truckloads of information available to you. The cherry on top was that despite being so well prepared (or so I thought), there were still quite a few surprises along the vacation related to travel basics like money exchange, etc. which we could’ve avoided had we known about them in advance.
Here you can find some of the most essential information such as basic history of Istanbul that will help you understand the city better, visa application details, certain do’s and don’ts for while you’re there to make your trip smoother.
