    • WHERE TO GO?

      Dalyan Apr 8, 2014 at 11:56 PM

      Morning everyone I'm Dave,

      I will be in Dalyan from the beginning of July for two weeks visiting my girlfriends parents & I'm looking for help! I'm planning to propose to my partner during our visit & would like to find a nice place to do it. Idealy I'd like it to be romantic & beautiful but the problem is my partner lived there for a few years and is likely to know all the nice places in the surrounding areas. We have means of transport so we can travel. We visited last year and went on a couple of boat trips along the river. We also went for a couple of meals, one being not far from Dalyan which turned out to be in the trees, that was nice. I just need a bit of guidance & help on some other nice places she may not know about, can anyone help?

      Thanks in advance

    • Stopping at Ataturk airport en route to Ghana. Is it worth a trip into Istanbul city centre?

      Istanbul Mar 30, 2014 at 3:11 PM

      Hi, I am travelling to Ghana and will be stopping at Ataturk airport for 17 and a half hours. We will be arriving at Ataturk around 11 pm Turkish time. Is it worth travelling to the city centre for some food and a look around? What is the best method of getting to the city centre? Are places to eat open late in the night? Is it safe at night? I was thinking of sticking to the Taksim square area. I tend to get bored easily and would like to leave the airport but I am unsure whether this is wise. This is my first proper trip out of Europe so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks =).

      Van hotels for summer trip

      by LostinParadiseTR Online Now Jun 14, 2009 at 7:55 AM

      I'm planning a trip to Van and Dogubeyazit this summer. I've seen on the net a couple of hotels which are in the nearby small town of Edremit. If I can find an affordable price, I thought it would be good to stay in one of these, rather than in the city itself. But am wondering what the public transport connections between Van center and the lake resort are like, and, also, if I take some day trips out with local travel agencies, would I be collected from an Edremit hotel by them? I've not visited the east of Turkey before (I live in Fethiye) ....I realise it is going to be different ..... (A similar situation here would not pose any kind of problem) but have no idea how different or in which particular ways. Any advice on this would be great ....I'm assuming Van is north of the problem PKK areas in the south east and so safe to visit. My Turkish is reasonable (about 65% fluent) so should be enough for everday situations. Also assuming that being a lone female traveller will not cause big problems ...........but please let me know if I'm wrong!

      safety in eastern Turkey

      by sandrahrusovska Online Now Mar 19, 2006 at 7:15 PM

      Hi to all!
      We are 3 friends (a girl and 2 guys) planning on traveling to eastern Turkey form Istanbul by a rented car (without a guide)on March 22. I have been collecting all the possible information about the dangers that we could encounter and even though many people who have been travellig there usually by BUS(!) and during the season say it is OK to travel there, some Turkish friends do not recommend to travel to places like Van, or Dyiarbakir by car right now. Reasons? Off season, nationalistic moods since the will be Newroz festival on 25-26, plus ambushes and robberies. On the other hand, car gives one freedom to travel where one wants and leave when one wants and we were thinking it might be safer if you have a car in remote places, plus buses don't follow the scedule very precisely.
      Does anyone know the real current situation? I am being too worried?
      Another question, is it real to do Istanbul-Samsun-Trabzon-Dogubayazit-Erzurum-Urfa-Antalya in 6-7 days?

      Thank you so much for any travel tips

      I am writing a story in which the main character passes through van. So, I had some questions about bus travel from Van to Ankara. Are there overnight buses from Van to Ankara and when do they leave, typically? Do you buy the ticket at the bus company in the center of town and then go to the otogar, or can you just buy your ticket at the bus or otogar? I have read that it takes about 18 hours to get to Ankara from Van. Is that right? How often does the bus leave? Thanks in advance
