Explosion hits major tourist area in Istanbul

Several people said to have been injured at an explosion at Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet district. This neighborhood is the most popular tourist area in Istanbul with the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and the Topkapi Palace in close proximity. Make sure to keep a close eye on travel alerts from your government if you are planning to visit Turkey in the near future as there have already been two major bombing attacks in Turkey last year. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35290760

    Those pesky terrorists are ruining my vacation plan for the next year. I was going to travel to Turkey with a colleague from topaustraliawriters. But now she's afraid to go there because of the political crises and terrorists.

    We also have decided to visit Istanbul in the next month, but due to this accident, our web design agency and other team members are afraid of going there. These peoples are not doing good. There is a need to punish them on their act. Security officers should need to take ana action on them to provide security to every common people.

    Turkey is the most beautiful place for tourism. I was planning to visit Turkey with family this year but after this explosion. I have changed my plan and do the Pakistan northern areas tour (https://www.travelo.pk/) with family. By having these bad news this place has just lost the uprising of tourism.
