"Leave your shoes outside!" Good Manners Tip by Mariajoy

Good Manners, Istanbul: 6 reviews and 3 photos


It is customary to leave your shoes outside the door when entering Turkish homes. When you have walked the streets of Istanbul you will know why! They are muddy and filthy and you don't want to be traipsing it into your hosts home! Our hosts gave us some indoor shoes to wear.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
