Will be in Istanbul Turkey for 4 nights in 2016. A while back while walking on the beach I found a sanddollar about the size of a quarter. I've always wanted to find a locket with a clear (Glass) face that I could display the sanddollar in and wear. I wondered if it would be possible to have such a locket made while in Istanbul and if so where would I start to locate someone to design and make one for me.
My hotel is Galata Palace Hotel and i am wondering how to reach it from the airport.
I have seen the route havatas buses makes and it passes very near. Is it possibe to ask the driver to drop you off at that point or any other point rather than taksim square?
Going to Istanbul at the end of August. Has anyone been to a Turkish bath? Any recommendations/tips? Also, we would like to check out the Asia side but unfortunately not many forums speak much of it. What is a must see in Asia? It could even be a shop or colorful place to take photos, etc. Doesn't have to be something super touristy. Anything at all. Thanks in advance!
Hello all. I am looking for advice.
A group of friends (all American) And I are planning to travel to Istanbul this weekend (August 14-16).
In light of recent terrorist events and the August 15th anniversary of the first attack of the Kurdish Workers Party (also called PKK or KGK) is it safe to travel to Istanbul? It is said that this anniversary has sparked violence and attacks in the past.
Good morning Guys, I will have a transit in Sabiha Gökçen Airport on the 4th of Sep,2015 and like to visit Istanbul between 9:00 till 09:00 pm till 09:00 pm my flight will be at 10:55 pm .
how can I see almost of the city in this time ? should i rend a taxi or car for one day or using Metro?
I like using public transportation I like to interact with the people and also i think it;s cheaper .
how about safety there ? i heard about some demonstrations??
I like to eat public food and have very simple souvenir.
In light of recent events (including yesterday 10th August). I was wondering how safe Instanbul is now? Was it near the tourist area?
We are holidaying in Bulgaria next month, and was looking at the possibility of a trip through to Instanbul, but naturally we now have concerns. It's somewhere we have always wanted to visit, so it would be a real shame if we missed out.
Your help would be appreciated.
