    Basically, in the last week of September before uni starts again, some of my friends are booking to go on a tour to see New York (all the main highlights) and some other friends are going on a cruise round the Turkish coast. They both sound amazing but I'm not sure which holiday to go on. I have to decide before the end of next week and haven't visited either.

    Anyone been to either of those places? Is 4 days long enough to see New York in, or should I opt for a week cruising round Turkey instead? The Turkish trip is actually cheaper, though I'm not sure what either are like in September. I was thinking of visiting NY at Christmas instead.

    Hey! I got back from turkey a couple of weeks ago, and I went to new York last year.

    I'd say that you should go on the Turkish cruise - unless you squeeze in 3-4 New York attractions in a day (which would be exhausting!), 4 days wouldn't be enough. And turkey is amazing!

    Also, if you go to New York around Christmas time, you can go ice skating outside the Rockefeller Centre and see the ball drop in Times Square

    Thanks I think the New York trip is one of those tours that tries to pack everything in, I'm not sure if it would be feasible in 4 days though. I have the entire week off so if I do choose NY I'll hang around for a bit on my own after the tour ends and explore the city solo.

    Where did you go in Turkey? The cruise does seem pretty awesome

    I went to Istanbul, and it was amazing! I had so much fun my friend is in marmaris right now and she's really enjoying herself

    Whereabouts in turkey would you be going to?

      I'd pick NYC over Turkey any day, 4 days isn't enough to see anything no matter what city you go to.

      I wouldn't fancy an organised tour of nyc. Might as well go on your own and show yourself around in your own time imo.
