Got four vacation days and a friend? We’ve found a discounted trip for you–and we’ve even got your packing list started for the trip. Check out this awesome deal, for a trip to Istanbul from Luxury Link , a travel site with awesome packages for 65% off. So if you’re like us and have champagne taste on a beer budget, you can still indulge without feeling too guilty.
Here’s the deal: get a deluxe room for two for three nights at the Ajia Hotel, a mansion on the Mediterranean, which includes speed boat access, private balconies, Whirlpools and an inclusive breakfast, situated on the gorgeous (and exotic-sounding) Bosphorous Strait. Buy the three night vacation package now ($595, down from $1,185) or bid on it (at posting time, it was going for $475, down from $1,185). The deal ends tomorrow at 11am EST, so hurry. We’ve got your packing list planned, too:
A printed caftan like this HOSS INTROPIA one ($125) is essential for every exotic location. This option is sheer so you can wear it over your swimsuit while lounging, or over a slip for evening. The tie at the waist makes you look slimmer–always a major bonus.
For flat sandals that are still chic, go for these gold DV by Dolce Vita Women’s Osorno sandals ($54.95). You can wear them to the beach and then later to dinner.
Protect yourself from UV rays and look glamorous at the same time with this Gap floppy straw hat ($29.50).
Dress up your vacation look with this Banana Republic Josephine bib necklace ($59.50). The burnished gold color looks exotic, but you can still wear it everywhere all summer.
