    We had a great stay at Berce. Hotel is clean,well located, wonderful breakfast and a super nice host, Mehmet. He can give you great tips about his city and then you can go out and explore on your own. If we are ever in Istanbul again, most definitely we are staying at Berce. And if they are sold out I will change travel dates just so we can stay there.

Airport Transfer to Sabiha Gökçen International Airport?

by muhdhazwan

Hi, I will be going to Istanbul in 3 weeks time. while I will be arriving form Ataturk, I will be leaving from Sabiha. I have to check-out of my hotel at 9am and check-in for my flight at 1pm. I guess I have time to do a quick exploring. So I am deciding between going to Istiklal/Taksim area and taking Havas to the airport and taking a boat trip to Kadikoy and taking a bus. Which option would be recommended?

hi, I just know that from kadikoy there is the bus E10 which goes to SG airport, it takes about one hour.

by marsistanbul

the best and easy option is Taksim-SabihaGokcen Airport via Havas Shuttle service..
http://www.havas.com.tr/en/otobus_istanbul_saw.asp

second option is pretty complicated..funicular(Taksim-Kabatas)-tram(kabatas-Karakoy)-Conventional Ferries city-lines(Karakoy-Kadikoy)-E 10 IETT lines(Kadikoy-Sabiha Gokcen..by the way there are 40 stops between Kadikoy and SG Havalimani:))
safe travels..

Travel Tips for Istanbul

Safety Question & Female traveler & dress code

by June.b

Turkey is generally a muslim country, yet shouldn’t be mistaken to be as Islamic as it’s neighboring countries or other Islamic countries in the middle east.

Istanbul is as Europe as it could get. Means, you could wear almost anything you like just as you would when you wander around in your own country, not if you are from a strictly-dress-coded country of course. You could wear shirts & jogging pants if you’re into it, shorts, skirts, it’s your call. BUT, when visiting places of worship, esp. mosques, you have to wear decent clothes, define: covering your curves, down to below your knees. Safe to say, wear pants or long skirt.

Some women in the populace wear headscarf, but, that’s their prerogative, it’s their choice, and you have the choice of doing the same if you so desire or it is your religion, tradition or customs to do so. Again, it’s your call.

Getting bothered, stalked, pestered, badgered or harassed happens everywhere, even in the so-called safest cities. If you keep your wits with you plus you conduct yourself properly, dress properly (or should we say – decently), the chance of untoward incidents would be very slim, either in your own place or any place you go. Same thing applies to Istanbul or any cities or town in Turkey.

Istanbul is twice (or more) safer than many other big cities on the planet. You could walk in main streets in either Taksim or Sultanahmet area at night without much worry as long as there are also other people around. I don’t think you would want to stroll at night alone in a deserted street or alley? And would there be any reason that you would walk alone in non-touristy ghettos? I’ve seen several lone female travelers in cities and towns I’ve been in Turkey. I saw 3 to 5 lone female travelers wandering around Carsi in winter when I was there, when there are not much tourists in that place during that time of the year.

Turkish are generally friendly people, arguably one of the friendliest and helpful (if not the first on the list) people on the planet.

But Istanbul or Turkey ain’t Pleasantville, so definitely you’ll find fault, yet in general, it’s as non-toxic as other cities, twice safer than other big cities, and a lot safer than several mega cities.

So don’t let that safety question wards you off from enjoying Istanbul or Turkey in general.

Flush Twice!

by Jetgirly

I was so confused when I saw this sign in the bathroom at Ataturk International Airport! How would flushing twice save water? A friend who lives in Turkey later explained it to me- the first time you hit the button it starts the flushing, and the second push of the button stops the flush! It makes perfect sense... now! So if you see a sign like this don't assume it's a bad translation- you really should push the button twice!

Nearly all of the population...

by PinkDolphine

Nearly all of the population claim allegiance to Islam. Of other adherents, there are about 20,000 Jews and about 200,000 Christians. Christian adherents are divided among Greek Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Protestant, and other denominations.

Fee of a hamam visit
One day...

by evliyasems

Fee of a hamam visit
One day Hodja went to a hamam (Turkish bath) but as he was dressed so poorly, the attendants didn't pay much attention to him. They gave him only a scrap of soap, a rag for a loin cloth and an old towel.
When Hodja left, he gave each of the two attendants a gold coin. As he had not complained of their poor service, they were very surprised. They wondered had they treated him better whether he would have given them even a larger tip.
The next week, Hodja came again. This time, they treated him like royalty and gave him embroidered towels and a loin cloth of silk. After being massaged and perfumed, he left the bath, handing each attendant the smallest copper coin possible.
- This, said Hodja, is for the last visit. The gold coins were for today.

Miniatures :)

by hekate about Orient Shop

Orient Shop is a small but couzy shop located in the Old book market. When you get inside you will see shelfs full of old-style hand written books, maps, miniatures and engravings.

A service they offer is to have your name written in Arabic letters by a calligrapher.

You will see also water-colour and oil paintings. Well, what I got there as a present was a very nice miniature of a whrilling dervish. It was a bout letter format size. I was tod that if were to pay it would prbably cost me about EUR 20 for that size. In compariso if you try to buy the same format in the museum shops it would be at least EUR 35.
