We'll be going to Istanbul for the first time and we would like to get suggestions on where to spend New Years Eve. We want a a restaurant/bar/club overlooking the Bosphorus to see the fireworks. We'll be staying about 5 mins away from Galata Tower so we prefer something around that area...
We would really appreciate your help! Thanks!!!

Hello! I just find this web.
And I got several questions about horse riding in Cappadocia.
1.Anyone can recommend me a good ranch to choose?
2.I have read several reviews on Tripadvisor about the Dalton Brothers Ranch, most are good, but some people have very terrible riding experience. I want to know that if anyone here who has really had a ride with Dalton Brother can tell me your experience?
3.My hotel gives me a good price of assiana balloon (Mavi Ay Ballooning), but I see few reviews about them. Anyone can give some advice whether to choose them or not?
Thank you very much!
Hi I'm thinking of going to Icemeler in October next year (have never been to turkey), could you tell me if there is any night life bars/restaurants etc and if it’s a good atmosphere at night?
I am traveling alone. What's the best tour from Izmir airport to Ephesus & Temple of Artemis & House of Mary and returning to the airport for a flight back to Athens.
I may be stopping about 10 hours in Istanbul airport. is it possible to go out without claiming luggage even if I am in transit? Is the check out normally fast?
I am planning on coming to Istanbul for the very first time!!! I can't believe I've never been before, but it is true! I am planning on coming on Dec. 27th and staying until the 31st December, 2013. I will be traveling with another woman friend and we would like to have a place with separate beds perhaps in a private flat. I've been looking on airbnb, but I am not familiar with Istanbul at all. We have a budget of 60Euros each per day for accommodations, so 120 per day if we share and if it is with separate beds. Also, we are not 'Spring Chickens' but still we are walking! We'd like to be somewhere nice and near the tourist areas, Agia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, the Bazaar, and we would like to avoid having to take many taxis and buses, I don't mind taking the metro and an occasional taxi will be necessary. Can anyone recommend a nice private flat that would be also in a good neighbourhood? Thank you very much. Janet
Please help comment on my plan:
day 1-2: arrive Istanbul, transfer to Nevsehir
day 3: Cappadocia
Day 4: Mt Nemrut
Day 5: overnight bus to Denizli
Day 6: Pamukkale
Day 7: Train to Selcuk than Sirince
Day 8: Ephesus
Day 9: Selcuk to Canakkale
Day 10: Troy
Day 11: bus to Istanbul
Day 12-15: Istanbul
Day 16: go home
(1) does the itinerary work? Any places that are not open during the period?
(2) Besides Turkish Airlines, what airline flies between Istanbul to Nevehir? I can't find this route from Atlasjet.
(3) Is there worth going to Safranbulo if I will stay some times in Sirince?
(4) which day trip from Istanbul is worth going? Anadoulu Kavagi/Edirne/Bursa ?
Thank you very much!

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 www.akmisseyahat.com 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!!
Need recommendation for hotel near airport.
We are 3 women planning a 10 day trip to Turkey next Sept. At this point we are planning a few days each in Istanbul and Cappadocia I don't want to miss ruins of Ephesus or the Turquoise Coast but my travel mates don't want to be running ragged between places (driving far or on/off several planes) so they would like to limit travel to ONE other major location. What do you recommend??? Thank you! MC Duncan
How can we get from Selcuk to Venus Hotel in Pammukale?
Hi. Having returned twice to Hillside Beachclub in Fethiye, we wonder about September 2014, trying a smaller hotel experience, perhaps Kalkan Regency in Kalkan. We would take two weeks hopefully combining a few days gulet cruise. We are attracted to Kalkan because one of our favourite places is Fiscardo in Kefalonia, and we are told Kalkan is similar? I would like to ask re. Restaurants in Kalkan, are the food options varied enough for 2 weeks? Secondly, if we select the Kalkan Regency, we have free access to Mahal Beachclub. As we have not used a beachclub before, could you tell me what to expect? Thanks.

I was reading some pages a few months ago and came upon some really interesting historical stuff (as in sites you can visit) not normally mentioned. Unfortunately I failed to save them and now I can't find them. I believe they were roughly in the area between Marmaris and Kusadasi but could stand being corrected there. Help! Cheers all
Hi all -
I have an upcoming trip where I'll have a seven hour layover in Istanbul. I can go in the lounge, which is great, but I was thinking of getting out of the airport. I know that I'll have to get an entry visa, which I realize will take some time. I've been to Istanbul before and have done some of the major sight-seeing (e.g. Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, etc.). I'm wondering if there is something close/convenient to the airport that I could do. One thing in particular I was wondering about is if there are any hammams nearby; that might be a good way to relax in the middle of my two long flights.
