BEST TIME TO VISIT Istanbul

The best time to visit Istanbul is during the fall season. During this season, the weather is spectacular, crowd is sparse and hotel rates are quite low, which makes it the perfect time to visit. This fall season window is sandwiched between a boiling summer and chilly winter. Summer is the peak season and sees spikes in both temperature and room rates. Weather is hot, humidity is atrocious and the dense crowd at bazaars or long waiting lines at mosques don’t help either. Spring season between the March and May months in Istanbul is also a good time to visit the city. Even though it has the after effects of the winter season like you needing a coat, it is quite pleasant and nice to visit Istanbul at this time of the year. The winter months from December to February are the wettest, so expect fog, rain and even snow. An umbrella and a warm coat is a must if you are planning to visit at this time. The positive side of the cold season is that you will find great bargains on hotel rates and there are some good ski resorts near Istanbul in case you wish for a snowy holiday.
