Hello all! I am heading to Turkey next month and will be based in Fethiye. I would really like to do a day trip to Pamukkale. Is this possible? I am definitely okay with leaving very early and getting back late. What are my options via public transport? ( I can't hire a car as I am a young Australian)
Thank you :)
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?

A family friend will be traveling to Istanbul in a few days with his family. His birthday will occur during his travels. Was trying to think of something fun that he would have to do in Istanbul - was thinking of Turkish currency but read that it's best to just use card/ATM while there.
Any thoughts/suggestions of what could maybe be something fun for his family while there?

The buses was used to be at taksim square next to gezi park, but after the renovation of the square they said that it was moved under the square. but there is only a high way downside and no bus stops like eminonu or the previous one next to the square ... Any answers ?
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?
Hello Has any one traveled to Istanbul during Ramadan and has spent EID ul Fitr / Bayram Seker there? I am a muslim from Pakistan.

Do the hotels arrange some special events ? Any special offerings for travelers?
I shall be arriving in Istanbul on 12 June by Royal Caribbean Rhapsody of the Seas. I have only one suitcase although there are the 2 of us travelling. My husband is not so mobile but he can walk very slowly so we intend to take the public transport back to Attaturk airport.
From surfing the internet,I understand that the old cruise terminal is no longer in use and I will be leaving from Salıpazarı docks. From there , I read that the nearest tram station is Tophanes and i change to Zeytinburnu and there change to a metro to the airport.
Please could you tell me if what I have written above is correct and
1) How far is the dock from Tophanes? I heard 10 min. (I assume for a healthy mobile person) but in terms of distance?
2) I do not think I need an Istanbulkart as I am only going straight to the airport. How do I buy my tokens from Tophane tram stop and how much will it cost to get to Zeytinburnu per person?
3) Do I buy the next stretch from Zeytinburnu to the airport? And how much? Or can I buy a ticket that will get me straight from Tophane to the airport?
Thank you very much.
Can anyone please tell me what the weather is usually like in late October & if the pools are still warm enough to swim in?
Thank you in advance!
Does anyone has an idea how shall I get Budo from bursa city center ?
I am planning to get bursa from sabiha airport via akmis buses then get istanbul via budo, do you think it's a good idea ?
I find it a bit difficult to find out if there are any trains going from Erzurum to Kars. At least I know that there used to be trains until 2014. The homepage of the Turkish State Railways (http://www.tcdd.gov.tr/) is not really helpful to me as most info is only in Turkish and the English part is very limited.
I know that there are buses going between these cities but I would prefer to go by train if possible.
So any help is much appreciated.
