"Try feslegen yagi." Istanbul Packing List Tip by eisme

Istanbul What to Pack: 38 reviews and 25 photos

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: mosquito repellant a must in summer! bring it with you, or if already in istanbul, try feslegen yagi, which is basil oil. works well if you use lots. relatively inexpensive if you bargain with the shopkeepers in the egyptian bazaar, and it smells much better than chemical mosquito repellents.
