Hi Sayeed,

We have been to Istanbul twice in end December (2013 and 2015) and although it was cold, we did not feel it and really enjoyed it.

Also, you get better flight and hotel deals around this time.

All the best.

You can enjoy Istanbul just as much in winter if you prepare well with suitable clothing for when you are outdoors. You will benefit from cheaper hotels, less tourists and queues. Much of the time you will be inside when visiting the historic sights, etc.

You'll still have a great time!
