Cihangir Sauna Istanbul - Gay Friendly

Cihangir Sauna Istanbul - Gay Friendly: Cihangir Sauna by Turkish Bath Guide. Ultimate guide of gay sauna, hammam and bath houses in Istanbul including maps and reviews

"The entrance is 70 liras (apprx 5 $). They do not give the clients the choice of selecting the masseurs. Whoever is available in line does the massage when you request. A Syrian masseur gave me the massage, which was OK. He said an half an hour of massage was 70 liras, but it actually it lasted only 20 minutes. For 20 minutes I didn't get the relaxation I expected.

Summer holiday demand shifts to autumn amid travel uncertainty


People are increasingly putting off their summer holidays and booking autumn breaks instead due to uncertainty over international travel, tour operators say.

Thomas Cook said autumn bookings were up 50% on normal levels, while luxury tour operator Kuoni said customers were "holding out for October half term". 
Greece and the Caribbean are among the most popular destinations. But some fear prices will rise due to fewer countries being open to tourism.

International travel is due to resume from 17 May under the government's roadmap to reopening, with plans for a "traffic-light" system categorising different countries.

However, the list of countries that Britons can travel to will not be known until nearer 17 May and will be subject to change. This has prompted a surge in autumn holiday bookings, with breaks in September and October accounting for 30% of Thomas Cook's live bookings for the year.
