Cihangir is peaceful in some streets and the vibes are chill in a lot of coffee/bars
Just came to Istanbul from Vienna and will stay here quite a while. If someone want's to grab a drink or work together please let me know! (I'm staying in Kadikoy for now and will move to Beyoglu later on) :slightly_smiling_face:
Cheers! ๐Ÿป
Hey! I moved in to Beyoglu today. Good vibes here so far ๐Ÿ˜Š when do you come to Beyoglu?
Nice! Next week. Are you down for a coffee or afterwork drink then? ๐Ÿ˜‰
๐Ÿ›ฌ kymjifkjq just arrived in ๐Ÿ– Istanbul, #turkey
hey y'all! currently in las palmas in the canary islands and i've been to istanbul and izmir before in turkey, however i'm thinking of coming back and staying somewhere along the mediterranean coast. current thoughts are either near izmir or fethiye but looking for recommendations!

i'm looking for some place by the water with swimming and surfing nearby, chill life, smaller city (max maybe 500k people), good wifi, and a younger population (i'm 25 and most nomad communities i go to people are in mid 30s :sweat_smile:)

my budget is relatively high and down to spend up to $6k a month to live a little nicer
Don't rule out some spots on the Black Sea especially in summer ๐Ÿ˜‰
Alright, where did you eat the best รงiฤŸ kรถfte you've ever had?
Will leave soon, eta probs 19:30-ish, catch you later!
Where exactly? I'm in the garden
In front of the door on the long thin table dead centre
Here in 20 minutes
any cities you recommend?
For surfing I'm not sure but upon doing a little research there are several small surfing towns within 2 hours of Istanbul that apparently have some of the best surfing in the country (ie Kerpe/Rumeli).

When it comes to the Black Sea coast I recommend everyone take a road trip along the coast for at least a week, stopping in small coastal towns frequently, to get a feel for these places. The cuisine, culture and scenery changes drastically and is really an impressive and overlooked imo.
Oh where?? Iโ€™m in Antalya too
Alaรงatฤฑ, Akyaka, Datรงa and KaลŸ could be some options to check out.
You mean the real รงiฤŸ kรถfte (with raw meat) or the fake stuff with bulgur? I think the real stuff is forbidden to sell so you can only find it homemade. Unfortunately no idea where to find best bulgur version.
I recommend Komagene, they have pretty good รงiฤŸ kรถfte with doritos ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello, maybe someone will find this interesting, I found a place to play football, there are organized matches several times a week in fikirtepe, kadฤฑkรถy ( and other places in istanbul ). Teams are 8 people, cost per person is 50 lira, 90 minutes game. If anyone wants to join, welcome ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will be there probably tomorrow or tuesday :slightly_smiling_face:.

Hi ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am planning to stay in Istanbul from 29. Mai to 05. June. Would be nice to be part of a digital nomad meetup. Do you know, if and where a meetup is happening?
It's called EatPrayFootball for anyone that's curious

My plans for Friday night are a bit in flux right now, but I'd be interested
Loved my time in Kadikoy ๐Ÿ™‚
Kadฤฑkรถy is popular and rightfully so. Close to the ferries to escape the city in Heybeliada and you're close enough to the touristic sites of European side and business area of dรถrt levent
Me personally if I ever do work from ฤฐstanbul I'd like to be as close as I can to Sabiha Gรถkรงen international airport to be able to catch affordable domestic flights on a regular basis for mountain and ski trips.
Not familiar with BeลŸiktaลŸ but regarding safety I personally felt incredibly safe at all hours of the day all of the times I've been in ฤฐstanbul.
Any recommendations for places to go out and party in Istanbul? Tonight or when ever
๐Ÿ›ฌ euxqcarztkaxv just arrived in ๐Ÿ– Istanbul, #turkey
Ah turns out you dont need tickets for Bova, so I'll be there on friday from 7.30pm if anyone would like to join ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ
Im between cihangir and bestiktas and I would highly recommend either area. Lovely cafes and restaurants in both.

It sounds like the downside of Kadiรถy for you would be the need to take the ferry every time to get to most of the tourist/historical places.

Iโ€™m in Besiktas. The cafe/bar area vibe is similar to Kadikรถy, a little more clubby. Walk up the hill a few blocks (Iโ€™m next to Abbasaga park) and itโ€™s pretty quiet and residential. Pretty walkable/busable to other neighborhoods and right by the ferry (havenโ€™t tried uber here). The closer you get to Fatih (e.g. Karakoy) the more convenient that will be but probably also less quiet.

Does anyone recommend a hostel/hotel that has the facilities and environment for digital nomads? It can be in any city in Turkey.
I didn't party too much when I was there but make sure to bring a female with you. Most clubs require a 50/50 split if you're not a regular and know the bouncer
I'm very curious as well if you end up getting some good recos!
Hi everyone! I landed in Istanbul a day ago and will stay here for a few days! I'll be going to Cappadocia and Kas after. Would love any recommendations for stay and co-working spaces / cafes! Also happy to meet-up in Istanbul, Cappadocia, or Kas ๐Ÿ™‚
I'm staying at Second home hostel in Istanbul - I chose here because they are supposed to be digital nomad friendly.
Is it just me or the food delivery apps in Istanbul suck (very much)?
Tried Getir, Yemeksepeti.. whether itโ€™s bugs in the app, allowing ordering food for closed restaurants or food not getting delivered.
Are they the only apps here?
Yeah both those apps suck. I lived in Kadikoy and just went out for lunch. Tons of great and cheap restaurants around, don't think it's really necessary to order online..
Try โ€œtrendyolโ€.
Yemeksepeti just made a redesign for their apps and there are tons of bugs on the new version.
I didnt have any problem with Getir btw
Where in Istanbul are you thinking? Cihangir is my fave for cafes - Chado and Journey especially!
I'll be at Chado tomorrow around 2pm actually, as I'll be stopping in for my nearly daily matcha (lol) before I go on a wander around Istanbul ๐Ÿ’ƒ
Open invite for the wander btw, if anyone fancies, debating Topkapi palace ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ
In Cappadocia, I'd recommend staying in Gรถreme, especially if you're solo travel and without a car. I don't believe there are any coworker spaces here. The Internet is pretty haphazard. My impression is most hotel rooms have pretty slow and intermittent access. Is you just need a laptop, others reported there are friendly cafes. I have a bigger setup and am able to work out of my hotel's common space.
CoBAC is a nice coworking space in the Fatih neighborhood. They even have a recording room for nomads who're podcasters
On my current trip to Turkey, I didn't fill out the health form and get a HES number. Is this no longer required for anything? So far nobody has asked me for a HES, but I am about to go to some cities with transit cards and I wanted to know if you are still supposed to link transit cards to a HES.
It is no longer required for anything.
Really appreciate the recommendations guys! ๐Ÿ™
holetpvmjwtwtbod I'm joining your meetup tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚ I'll be in Cihangir area tomorrow, so happy to meet-up for a tea at Chado! I might bring my work and work there if it's work friendly.
uyheqqvuhdncyzht I can't direct message you because I'm new to Nomadlist ๐Ÿ˜ž Can we connect on instagram wxreubetcgfxgavw
Although it should read Bova not Boda

Ah, ok, I'll move on to there then
zdzsozzecbcnnzrj how do I recognize you? I'm in front of bova
Maybe wave ๐Ÿ˜…
and how are you feeling about it?
Anyone got any good recommendations for hostels or coworking spots? Would be nice if I could use a hostel that has a decent coworking / common area for remote working, etc.

Where is your favorite coffeeshop to work at in Istanbul?
mine is SALT Galata's cafe
I donโ€™t try to work in cafes, but my favorite for people-watching in Besiktas is Black Owl. />
And my favorite for just good coffee is any MOC (Ministry of Coffee) location.
Ooooh nice tip U02R7S7RRGA!
