    • 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?

      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

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
