    • Getting from Bursa to Istanbul (not from Istanbul to Bursa)

      Bursa May 23, 2015 at 8:53 AM

      Hi! Could you help me! Many websites tell how to get from Istanbul to Bursa. I need to go only return (opposite) way - from Bursa to Istanbul. I plan to compose my way this way:  
      Bursa City Centre >> Organize Sanayi metro station >> Bus from Organize Sanayi metro station to Güzelyalı ferry port >> IDO ferry from Güzelyalı ferry terminal to Yenikapı ferry terminal in Istanbul.

      I do not understand few things about this way from Bursa to Istanbul. Could you help me:

      1. They say that at Güzelyalı ferry terminal there are special buses which MEET THE FERRY to take passengers to Organize Sanayi metro station in Bursa. There I need to catch that bus in opposite way? Near the metro stration? How can I found it there?

      2. Does there the special bus, which meet the passengers near metro station and take it to specific ferry (I want to catch the 18:00 ferry from Güzelyalı ferry terminal). If so, does it have some timetable, to know then I need to be at Organize Sanayi metro station.

      3. They say, that there is the combine ticket (ferry+bus) from the Istanbul to Bursa. If so, where I need to buy this combine ticket in Bursa>>Instanbul way? Can I buy it somethere near Organize Sanayi metro station or I need to buy ferry ticket separately, at Güzelyalı ferry terminal?

      Thank you!

    • Yesilyurt & Istanbul Kart

      Istanbul May 13, 2015 at 6:34 AM

      I'll be staying one night near the airport and want to visit a lighthouse near the waterfront that looks to be near a train stop named "Yesilyurt." Is there a commuter train stop there? If so, where would I have to go to get on it, either coming from Sultanahmet area, or from the airport? Do I need a separate ticket for that, or will the Istanbul Kart cover that?
      Is there a bus that goes close to there? I didn't have much luck with the ulism (spelling?) web site in determining how to get there.

      In terms of taking the train or metro across to Asia, is that covered by the Kart? I know ferries aren't but wasn't sure about Marmaray line, which might be different from the metro and trams.

      Finally, is it possible to buy the Istanbul Kart with a credit card? I know you have to go to certain stations to get one (can't get one at just any tram stop) but what I'm not sure about is exactly how to purchase one. For example, at the Eminonu location, will it be obvious as to where I go to purchase it? Are they just available from machines or is there a real person there to help me if needed? Do they take credit cards?

With my travel agent I have a possibility of staying in Sealight Resort Hotel. i've read that it is located 5km from city centre, 1 Km from the Marina, so I would like to know if there are shops, cafes, etc on the way to town, or if it is not possible to walk from this hotel into the centre. That's because I hate to stay in the middle of nowhere, having only the resort facilities. I like being able to go into town, not needing a taxi. What other suggestions do you have where I could stay and be able to profit from the sea but be near town at walkable distance?

If I can find the jeweler and give him info from the receipt, maybe he can look it up and help me. I have a phone number, which for obvious reasons I can't use. If I even had an email address, that would be a start. I would appreciate any help anyone can give me. I know this is probably a long shot but I have to try.

If we travel by dolmus to Epheus, and then from Ephus we take a Dolmus to Selcuk. Can we then take a taxi to the Virgin Mary House? Where would we catch a taxi? Do we have to ask the taxi to wait or will can we find another one to take us back to the dolums stop to get back to kusadasi. How much should the taxi cost to get from Selcuk to the Virgin Mary House and back again?
      Should we just rent a car in Kusadasi and drive to Epheus and then on to the Virgin Mary house in Selcuk? Are the roads easy to navigate? Is the parking easy to access and how much does it cost to park? I would prefer to drive myself, and if it is EASY to get around, then I wouldn't mind doing that. Is there a car rental place near the port where cruise ships dock?

      Thanks ahead of time for all the answers.
