i won an internship in a company based in Umraniye, Istanbul near Yukan Dudullu mahallesi i think, but i'm having those worries that everyone has when they don't know the place. I'm a 25yr old guy going alone to Istanbul, i enjoy playing sports, drink a beer with friends in the end of the day, partying on weekends.. that kind of thing everyone does on their twenties. My question is how's Umraniye? Boredom can be an issue? Is there any nightlife? Approaching girls can be a problem? I read it's a very conservative area. I know it's far from all those touristic places from Istanbul and i'm not going to have a car so, how's transportation? Do they work well? Is it expensive going from Umraniye to Sultanahmet or Taksim?
I'm sorry if i sound ignorant but i'm really trying to learn as much as i can about this particular place ;)
Thanks for any answer
