    • Where is the Main Bus Terminal in Istanbul.

      Istanbul Mar 8, 2015 at 9:09 AM

      We are a senior couple who want to travel from Istanbul to Bodrum - and then on to Rhodes.
      We are staying at the Star Holiday Hotel in the Sultanahmet and will need to get to the Istanbul Otgar on that side of town. Is it affordable to get there by taxi? We will be travelling just on the night before Ramadam Wed 17th June 2015 and are wondering if that is going to affect out trip. Also I'm not sure if we can get the hotel to book the bus ticket or whether to do that on the internet.
      Any suggestions or information re bus companies etc would be greatly appreciated. I have read some of the posts on the VT website but some of them are a bit older and I am not sure if the information is still relevant.

      Hello Folks,

      In September, I'll be visiting Istanbul with my wife, baby and two other friends. We'll be renting an apartment during our stay and I'd like to get your advice on the best location. Because we're with a baby we're a little slower and less mobile, so I'd like to stay somewhere that is beautiful (views, surroundings) and that is convenient to shops, pedestrian areas etc. Gone are the days of flopping out anywhere and ranging far and wide.

      My question is: What is the ideal place to rent an apartment for a week's stay in Istanbul?

      Thank you!

    • Fez makers in instabul

      Istanbul Jan 17, 2015 at 10:48 PM

      Hello,

      My sister is in Istanbul and i have told her to buy me an authentic fez from there, but she seems to tell me that the only fezzes she could find were tourist souvenirs, or all are like cardboard painted red. After researching online, I found no store in the entirety of istanbul that sells one real fez. Is this true? i already know ataturk banned the fez in his time, but surely there are sellers now. Please, if anyone knows of any place in istanbul, comment down the address and name of the place.

      Thank you in advance

      Travel to Istanbul and area

      Istanbul Nov 15, 2014 at 5:20 PM

      My boyfriend and I are interested in visiting Istanbul in May 2015. Is this a good time of year to travel there weather wise? We are researching places to visit, but some "off the beaten path" recommendations would be appreciated...
      We are also considering renting a vehicle and driving to places along the coast such as Izmir and Antalya and then to the Cappadocia area. Would 10 days be enough to see these highlights and is it advisable to rent a car and drive around ourselves? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
