      Turkey 9 hours ago

      We are wanting to do a Bosphorus Cruise in the late afternoon. Is there any such cruise that we can take from Kabatas at about 5:30 or 6 PM and then return to Kabatas / Eminou at around 10:30 - 1100 PM. What would be the best options available? We are not so keen on dinner etc, however commentary or at least an audio guide would be a must. Thanks in Advance

      Selcuk Nov 13, 2015 at 8:58 PM

      We are to arrive at Izmir Airport at around 10:20 am and wish to process to Selcuk where we are staying for a while. One reads that Izmir-Selcuk train (there is one at 11:45 am) is a cheap option and that the railway station at the Izmir Airport is easily accessible. However some reviewers have commented that the trains which start from Izmir are crowded and getting on them with luggage and then getting a seat is a problem. Is it really that bad? Anyone with personal experience to help us decide please?

      Goreme Nov 18, 2015 at 1:44 AM

      We are travelling to Goreme next May and will reach Goreme at about 4 pm. We plan to spend two clear days after that. After reading suggestions on VT, we have decided to take the Hot Air Balloon and the Green Tour on Day One. The next day we plan to NOT take a tour but take a Dolmus to Uchisar and hike down the Pigeon Valley in the morning. Later, take a Dolmus to Cavusin and go up to Red Valley Plateau and thereafter to Avanos, Pasabag and Zelve. Request for 1. Comments and Suggestions on the overall plan. Can we do anything better? 2. Guidance on the second day when would be on our own.3. On the day we arrive, we have some hours before sunset. What can be done during this period? Is there time enough to go to Love Valley? We do not wish to visit Goreme Open Air Museum. Thanks

      Hotels in Amasya

      by LostinParadiseTR Online Now Mar 31, 2011 at 8:24 AM

      I'm planning to spend four nights in Amasya in September ... will be arriving late in the day first night, so want to get organised in advance. I've been looking at hotels there .... the small hotels in Ottoman buildings look very atmospheric, but I wondered how comfortable they are? I'll be travelling on my own so will almost certainly end up in the smallest room.

      Can anyone tell me if there are Ottoman style hotels with decent size rooms and all mod cons (aircon and reasonable bathroom)? Or would I need to choose a modern hotel to be comfortable?

      All advice will be appreciated

      Transport from Merzifon Airport to Amasya center

      by LostinParadiseTR Online Now Dec 10, 2010 at 7:14 AM

      Turkish airlines began regular flights from Istanbul to Amasya Merzifon airport a couple of years ago. I am planning a trip there but have not been able to find any information about a Havaş or similar bus service from the airport into Amasya center. I've learned that the airport is 46 km outside the town center - so I really dont want to use a taxi. Does anyone know if there is a bus service of any kind? The flight is due to arrive at 18.00.
