      Jordan 6 hours ago

      Hi everyone,

      I'll be in Amman from July 30th until August 26th. I am going to Jordan to learn Arabic as well as for doing some tourism there. Can you give me recommendations to what to visit and/or good places to learn Arabic?? (I have intermediate level of Arabic)

      I am also concerned about the safety in the area now... as all Tel Aviv flights coming from Europe and the US have been suspended today :S

      Belek Yesterday

      My partner and I are 50s age, we like lovely surroundings, quietness but times to be more lively also. Good food and sights to see and visit are important for us in a holiday. Nice bars without trying to survive in the youth groups but not boring either. Is Belek a good place for us ?

      Much Thanks

      and there was no answer during the working day (Monday 11 AM)

      Tried
      (212) 261-0470 but it just directs you to the 800 number

      This is quite worrying to me. If I have any issues, I need to be able to contact the airline.

      hotels near ICEC

      Istanbul Jul 17, 2014 at 10:43 PM

      Hi, making plans for attending a conference at the ICEC, have narrowed down to the following midrange hotels in the Taskim area:

      - Konak
      - Titanic City
      - Crystal
      - Golden Age
      - Grand Oztanik

      Konak seems the closest to ICEC and still within short walk to Taskim Metro Station. Anyone has good/bad experience in any of these?

      Also any recommendation for authentic local restaurants near the hotels that serves good turkish/ottoman cuisines would be appreciated.

      Thank you.
