Hello,

I am planning a trip to Turkey (Istanbul) for the month of September. Is Istanbul a safe place for a single lady to travel alone?

Thanks

Yeah you will be fine, safer than most Western countries id say. all rules apply, dont walk alone at night, stay in crowds, watch surroundings.

Yes all rules plus watch what you are wearing.

Istanbul is very diversified in terms of modern - conservative life styles. in conservative areas try to cover your shoulders, no mini skirts, no makeup etc...
