  1. I wan to applaud your police for breaking up gay parade. Our country has become a cesspool for these un-godless and even now made legal. At least your country has standards and is morally decent!I think a vacation to Istanbul is in order and again I applaud your police and your city.

  3. My name is Mohamad Faiz (on holiday from Malaysia). I and family (on 27 September 2015) at about 1.30pm took a taxi (registration number 34 ) from beside Gulhane park (university campus down fr Basilica Cistern) after visiting Topkapi Palace, to go to Istinye Park Mall. I insisted to the driver to use meter but he did not. We arrived at about 2.05pm at Istinye Park Mall, he pressed the taxi meter but an illegible figure came out and he insisted I give him a 100TL so that he can return back 20TL. I gave him an exact amount of 80TL (in 50TL, 20TL and 10TL notes) but he insisted that I did not give him enough and started shouting at us. We left him to walk through the pedestrian tunnel to the mall. I hope Istanbul Tourism Police can take action as this taxi driver has left us with a bad experience in Istanbul.  Thank you.
