The Complete Yalova City Guide: An Alternative Destination for Digital Nomads Near Istanbul

The Complete Yalova City Guide – An Alternative Destination for Digital Nomads Near Istanbul

After spending a month as a digital nomad in Izmir and then moving to Serbia for another month, I initially planned to choose Istanbul as my next home base until just a few days before my arrival back to Turkiye, the Airbnb host that I booked canceled on me. And when I tried to find another apartment through the platform, I couldn’t find any apartment in Istanbul, not even a studio, that cost less than $700 USD per month.

So after a few considerations before traveling back to Turkiye, I decided to find a place for me to stay outside Istanbul as a digital nomad. Somewhere that is not too far from Istanbul that I can travel back and forth on a day trip to the big city, but with more budget-friendly rent for my accommodation. And that’s when I decided to book a place in Yalova, a city I never knew existed before I moved there earlier this year.

Review: Single Room at Apartmani Amaro Novi Sad

Review: Single Room at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad

One thing I noticed when I started looking for accommodation to stay in Novi Sad is that the rate is slightly higher than most places in Serbia, even the capital city in Belgrade. I wasn’t picky when it came to accommodation, so I booked a single room at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Apartmani Amaro is the second accommodation that I booked through Agoda in Serbia after Apartmani Vasic in Banja Koviljaca. But I found booking Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad more straightforward than the latter, as Apartmani Amaro allowed us to proceed with the online payment through Agoda.

In this post, I’m going to share a review of my experience when I stayed in the single room at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad on New Year’s Eve. I got connected with a girl in Novi Sad through Couchsurfing who kinda gave me some hope to have someone to spend the New Year’s Eve together, but she kinda ditched me so I ended up doing nothing in my room to welcome 2022 there.

So, how was my experience staying at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad? Here we go!

Apartmani Vasic, Banja Koviljaca.

Apartmani Vasic – Where to Stay in Banja Koviljaca, Serbia

Banja Koviljaca is one of the most famous spa towns in Serbia, which I’ve included on the list of must-visit places in Serbia the other day. Situated at the foothill of Mt. Gucevo, you could enjoy some relaxing and spa time as if you were one of the members of the royal dynasty Karadjordjevic in the early 1900s.

Apart from Banja Koviljaca, there are also a few spa towns in Serbia such as Vrnjacka Banja, Bukovicka Banja, or Niska Banja. However, since I spent a few days traveling around Loznica and I stayed at the accommodation located in Banja Koviljaca, this time I’m going to write a review about my experience of staying at Apartmani Vasic when I was there.

Located at Marsala Tita, there are plenty of accommodations in the area around Banja Koviljaca. Marsala Tita itself is the main road that connects West Serbia with Bosnia. So, how was my stay at Apartmani Vasic when I booked it as accommodation during my stay in Banja Koviljaca?

Accommodation in Edirne: Cavit Duvan Prestige Hotel & Ponsetya Restaurant

Accommodation in Edirne: Cavit Duvan Prestige Hotel & Ponsetya Restaurant

If there’s anything that I’ve learned from visiting Edirne, it is the fact that Agoda doesn’t have too many accommodation options in the city. As an avid Agoda user, I decided to just book the first accommodation option that I got on the app, and it was Cavit Duvan Prestige Hotel.

When I checked their rating, it was 9 out of 10 so I guest Cavit Duvan Prestige is one of the recommended hotels to stay in Edirne. The room photos that I saw on Agoda also helped me decide to stay there for the three nights I was there.

In this post, I’m going to highlight the pros and cons of staying at Cavit Duvan Prestige Hotel in Edirne and share my experience of having dinner at Ponsetya Restaurant, the restaurant on their rooftop that is named to be the best rooftop restaurant in town.

So, how was it? Check this out! 🙂
