"The cost of living in Turkey is generally considered to be quite affordable. However, the cost of living in the larger cities such as Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir is higher than in the rest of the country. The rental price for a nice 1 bedroom apartment in Turkey is typically around $500 USD per month, while a nice 2 bedroom apartment is around $700 USD per month. Eating dinner at a moderately priced restaurant in Turkey will usually cost around $15 USD per person," said another in Turkey.
