How do I meet people in Istanbul?

Answer this Question

When we asked people living in Istanbul about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded...

"Expats in Istanbul often join clubs and activities such as language exchange groups, book clubs, and sports teams. Expats can also meet people by attending local events such as concerts, festivals, and art exhibitions. Additionally, many expats find it helpful to join online forums and social media groups related to their interests, as well as attending meetups and networking events. Finally, expats can also meet people by simply exploring the city and striking up conversations with locals," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Istanbul, Turkey.

"Istanbul is a great expat post in many ways - it has the diversity of an active cosmopolitan city but also has a very nice group of expat population. There are associations here such as IWI (Intl. Women of Istanbul), AWI(American women), French group, Latino group, Die Brucke (Germans), Italian group and many others," commented one expat who made the move to Istanbul, Turkey.
