    • yesil turbe

      by stuartfreeman Online Now Apr 4, 2014 at 10:38 AM

      When I last visited Bursa, the Yesil Turbe was undergoing restoration and the exterior was scaffolded. Has the restoration work been completed as yet? I'll be returning to Turkey in June 2014 and want to know whether it would be worth my while revisiting it.

      From Sabiha Gokcen Airport to Bursa and then to Gemlik

      by SofiaR5 Online Now Nov 16, 2013 at 2:33 PM

      Hello, i just found this forum and want to ask two things. First, how can i go from Sabiha Gokcen airport to Bursa (the easiest way) I have read in Pegasus Airline Page, that the company has also buses, which go directly from the airport to Bursa, but the site is in turkish and i can't understand anything. I think to stay in Bursa for one night and then go to Gemlik, that is my mother's hometown. So the second question is how can i go from Bursa to Gemlik. Thanks in advance!!

    • Months of the cocoon sales in the Koza Hani / Bazaar ?

      by joen_denmark Online Now Jan 3, 2013 at 3:18 AM

      I was in Bursa last December, visited the great bazaar and am now writing a travel article about the city and its silk-trade history.

      However it is a bit uncertain exactly which months the cocoon sales takes place in the Koza Hani bazaar. Some sources say that it is in May-July, others that it is in April and September. Does anyone here know any details ?

      Thank you for your kind attention !

I have a flight at 10am, but cannot leave bursa until the night or early morning. Does anyone know if there will be buses running to Istanbul, preferably stopping near the airport, at these times?

    • Can I find a hotel in Iznik any time during 12-Sep to 17-October (Ramadan Period)

      by mkrbu50 Online Now Aug 12, 2007 at 12:22 AM

      I guess the post title tells some of the questions. However, I have a bit longer story. I contacted a hotel by phone in Iznik, I found its number on the hotels -rather shabby- website.
      The phone answered with a male voice on the other side, and I asked in what I believe is a polite tone: "I've visited your website and I liked your Pansiyon. May I make reservation for 2 nights starting from 30 of September?".
      The voice answered "No, we don't have. It is Ramadan, we close". The website did mention that it will not accept phone/email reservations, due to many cases of no show up. Instead, it provided bank accounts for payment deposits. Having said that, I would assume in all good intentions that this was an attempt to turn me down nicely because I did not follow his instructions.
      The big question is> Do they have something like business holiday/break during the mentioned period.
