Where we live now is Istanbul:
-It's the biggest city in the country where everything happens
-It has a population of 15,000,000 (next biggest city has 4,000,000)
-It's very historical, almost all minorities live here
-Literally EVERYTHING happens here
-It's also expensive
We'll have enough money to buy a better apartment in Bodrum after selling the one in Istanbul.
-Bodrum is in Southwestern Turkey relies almost entirely on tourism
-It's also very historical, ancient Greek stuff, old churches etc.
-It probably has the highest foreign born and tourist population in the entire country, might be good for practicing English
-It's very green and when you look down from the plane the hills kinda look like California's, but more trees
-It has a nice beach
-I'm positive that I can find a gay bar

I've been to bodrum on holiday (I'm from England) its a million miles from Istanbul, although its nightlife is good, its all tourists getting drunk. Nothing like Istanbul at all so it would be a totally different life there. I went to Side a couple of years ago and Sarigeme (think that's correct spelling) and both were better, in my opinion, than Bodrum. Good luck with whatever happens. :-)1
