    • Istanbul Attractions Near the Ataturk Airport

      Istanbul Dec 25, 2016 at 10:01 PM

      Hello everyone,

      I have a pretty big gap between flights at Ataturk airport. I arrive about 18:00 on Fri Dec30 and leave about 13:00 on Sat Dec31. I do not need to have a visa to leave the airport, so I would like to explore the city a bit. What attractions should I visit and until what time is it safe to be in the street? I am planning to spend an evening/night in the city, go back to the airport for the night, and then visit this ( city tour. What do you think about this plan? How heavy is the traffic going to be these days? Keep in mind that I am 17 and I am not ready to spend money on hotels or taxis.

      Thank you for the information,

      by BeckySussex Online Now Aug 30, 2013 at 10:44 AM

      Hello fellow Side lovers,

      1. I am just wondering whether anyone has any further info about the Side International Culture and Art Festival ( My husband and I would really love to go, however we aren't sure what date is best to go in first week of September or what time to arrive, what to wear, whether we can take food/drink, etc.?
      2. Where's good to go for live rock bands, drum n bass, 80's nights?

      Having never been to Turkey, we are unfamiliar with the food production methods and are wondering whether it will be easy to buy items in supermarkets and grocery markets like: free range eggs, free range chicken meat, free range pork meat, good quality lamb and beef?
      Any advice on this would be very helpful, also if you've any good tips for produce shops, that'd be very kind too.

      I have seen a nice animal zoo in Antalya on TripAdvisor (, however I haven't been able to find similar animal park, zoo or farm attractions in Side or Manavgat.
      Any tips here would be greatly appreciated!

      Other than the Manavgat waterfalls (, are there any other nearby natural beauty spots that you can recommend that don't involve rafting or jeeps please?

      Many thanks in advance for any of your help!

      And finally, if anyone has advice as to nearby animal zoos and farms open to visitors that are accessible by public transport, I would be most grateful.
      Many thanks in advance!

      by davedee52 Online Now Mar 5, 2012 at 8:02 AM

      My wife and I are staying at the Semoris Hotel in Side Turkey this summer, our arrival at the hotel will be very late, maybe early hours of the morning and as we will have been travelling for over 15 hours will probably be very hungry. We understand food will not be available at the hotel at this time, so can anyone recommend a restaurant/café within easy walking distance where we might be able to get a bit to eat. Thanking you all in advance.
