Quality of Life is not high if you're not rich enough! you must earn minimum 5.000 per month for one person if you want be consider yourself rich!

If you can afford to expend over 10,000TL monthly in Istanbul QOL would be above the global avrage. With 2000TL per month, life is like being a Syrian refugee in Balkans.

Quality of life high?? Are you joking?.
Prices for everyday life are 100 - 300%
higher than in Scandinavia, including
public transport and food. Apartments
are very much inferior to European housing
and traffic is a disaster... Basically, Istanbul
is a city where only the mega rich can have
a good life.
