#Erdi on Aug 29, 2015 :
Hi #marwa. It really depends. But, for sure in Ankara you would live more comfortable with that 600TL than Ist. since Ank is cheaper in almost everything. However, there is that world-known Bosphorus in Ist which cannot be compared with any place in Ank!

#thornes on Jul 15, 2013 :
I am considering a job offer at one of the universities. The pay is about 2200 a month but no housing. I also am bringing two children so we need at least a 2 to 3 bedroom. Will this pay cover the cost of living with two children and their school fees?

#Kursat on Jun 09, 2013 :
Yes Peter that's a good offer. You'll be fine.
#Laura on May 24, 2013 :
@Peter: you could live well with $4800 and a furnished apartment anywhere in the world, I'd think!
