Each of us must have been there many times, alternating with an exciting shopping exciting tours, walks and quiet relaxation on the magnificent beach resorts. Currently in Istanbul held the action "Shopping for Dollars." For Russian tourists, the program has become a real gift. Agree that by exchanging rubles for the homeland "chassis" currency (euro, dollar) and then exchanging it for a lyre, a traveler loses a considerable sum of exchange differences. Now you can avoid by simply exchanging money not have to. The program involves the boutiques and shops in the most popular among shoppers areas Osmanbey, Laleli and Merter. The idea of 'Shopping for the Dollar' was the chairman of the Istanbul clothing exporters association (ITKIB) Hikmet Tanriverdi. Project proponents are hoping that in the near future similar events take place in other regions, such as the Mediterranean resorts, the favorite Russian tourists. We wish you good shopping and sunny vacation! Sincerely, TRADE MERIDIAN Company
