^I thought of doing the same thing kasi nakakuha ako ng 1.7K RT ticket from CebPac LY. Kaso ang mahal din ng airfare from DXB, nag rarange din ng 20-25K RT (DXB-IST). Merong mas mura nasa 10K lang nakita ko kaso ibang terminal so need pa ng transit visa. So para less hassle, nag book ako sa Etihad :)

^sis [textspeak!] etihad mo is dxb to istanbul na? Hoe much? Nagaantay nga ulit ako promos for next year ng mnl-dxb. Kapag ba hindi ka lumabas ng airport ng dubai no need na for transit visa?

^MNL - Abu Dhabi - IST yun nakuha sa Etihad sis. 30K+ sya pero naging 35k+ kasi nag pa installment ako sa Citibank. It depends sis. Kung CebPac ang makuha mong MNL-DXB sa DXB Terminal 1 ka. Dapat sa Terminal 1 din flight mo pa IST para hindi na kailangan ng visa that is kung wala ka ring checked in baggage. Lalabas kasi ng transit area kung may baggage ka eh. Kung hindi kaya na walang baggage bukod sa hand carry, avail mo na lang ang services ng Marhaba. Yung mga low cost carriers like FlyDubai nasa Terminal 2.

Check mo sis yung blog na to tsaka yung mga comments. Baka makatulong :)

Has anyone here had any experience applying at the Turkish Embassy? I've read some comments that they are strict and seem to issue a lot of denials so I'm contemplating whether to apply there directly or try to get a Schengen Visa so I can quality for an e-visa instead. Any insight appreciated, thanks.

Has anyone flown with Turkish Airlines lately? This is the cheapest I got for Manila to Paris then Rome to Manila flight. They also have TourIstanbul for long layovers. Has anyone joined this free tour? Thank you!

^Turkish Air ako when I traveled to Italy to study. Okay naman siya, I even got upgraded sa flight back to Manila. Masarap yung food nung Istanbul to Turin. :) Maganda rin entertainment system.

Hindi ko na na-avail yung layover tour kasi nagpa-rebook ako ng flight para maiwasan long layover (and hindi rin sakto sa maayos na time yung layover).

Sharing my 11-day Ultimate Turkey Trip including expense breakdown, tips and itinerary :)

https://www.projectgora.com/2018/09/diy-travel-guide-turkey.html

Turkey's currency has reached an all-time low against the pound/USD. This might be the perfect time to visit mga sis! 1 Turkish Lira = 8 PHP :-* Last April, 1 TRY = 13 PHP pa.
