Background info: I was born in Korea, and moved to US 20 years ago. My wife was also born in Korea and moved to US 8 years ago. We both speak Korean and English fluently. I have a US passport, and she has a Korean passport.
Now, we're visiting Istanbul for 4 days next week. I am a bit worried after reading about people who will harass you to bring you to their store, or men who may make romantic (they think) gestures at my wife. If we pretend to be Korean (from Korea), who do not speak English very well, and speak 100% in Korean to each other in public, would we be left alone a little more?
I am really really looking forward to visiting all the historic sights of Istanbul, but also want to be prepared for the not-so-pleasant side of this city as well.
