Hostel near Sabiha airport

by hanys

Hi all,

I have a question. I will be arriving at Sabiha int. airport after midnight. So I would like to know some cheap hotel or hostel near the airport where I could get some sleep. I know there is a bus going from the airport to Kadikoy, so I could get to the hostel at Kadikoy with no problem.

Please let me know some. Thank you Jan

maerry Xmass and happy new year

Travel Tips for Istanbul

Istiklal Caddesi and Beyoglu

by Paul2001

I actually did not visit the Istiklal Caddesi until late in the stay in Istanbul. This is probably because none of the must-sees of this enchanting city are located here. What Istiklal Caddesi does have is very fine shops and lots of good restaurants. This is Istanbul (and Turkey) at its most cosmopolitian. During the heyday of the Ottoman Empire, this street became very popular with the city's affluent and Europeans seeking the exotic. Today Istiklal Caddesi is still very popular with wealthy locals and foreign tourists alike. It is in the vicinity of the Istaklal Caddesi that you will find the best restaurants including many non-Turkish ones and Istanbul's best nightlife. This is where the young go clubbing. I was sort of taken in by the area and sort of wished that I had stayed here instead of the Sultanahment. This latter area is great if you want to be close to many of the best attractions of the city but if you want to be close to the best restaurants then consider the Istaklal Caddesi and Beyoglu. One of the more charming features about this neighborhood is the fun little tram that shoots up and down Istaklal Caddesi. It dates from the 19th century and is as part of Istanbul as the trolleys are to San Fransisco.

Nargileh

by travelmad478

Smoking water pipes, or nargileh, is a great Turkish pastime. Both men and women can be found in nargileh joints, puffing away at bubbling water pipes, drinking apple tea, and playing endless games of backgammon. This is an activity to do with a group of friends, and you can sit and gab for hours doing it. On a sunny weekend afternoon, or any night of the week until all hours, you can find hundreds of people gathered at the outdoor nargileh cafes in the Amerikan Pazar. This complex is located in the shadow of Nusretiye Camii, just off Necatibey Cad (the road to Dolmabahce Palace). Head over with your friends for a truly Turkish experience.

Ýnönü Stadium - Besiktas JK

by vichatherly

Home to the Turkish league team of Besiktas JK, formed in August 1911.

A 32.145 all-seater stadium opened on May 19, 1947, although the capacity then was only 16,000.

Whilst it was always home to Besiktas JK, it was also used by Galatasaray SK and Fenerbahce SK for a few years, whilst the construction of the Ali Sami Yen Stadium, the home of Galatasaray football club and the Sükrü Saracoglu Stadium, the home of Fenerbahçe SK were completed.

Rumeli Hisari

by MalenaN

A sunny sunday afternoon I visited Rumeli Hisari. It is a fortress by Bosphorus, just by Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. The fortress was built in 1452 as a preparation for the invation of Constantinopel. There are stairs so you can climb up along the walls and admire the view over Bosphorus and the boats. But be careful, there are no fences.
Entrance fee is 4 000 000 TL (for tourists).

The shore along Bosporus are popular to visit on Sundays and people, cars and motorbikes are cruseing back and forth. Just below Rumeli Hisari there are several cafes.

To go here you can take a bus from Eminönü, Taksim or Besiktas.
The Bosphorus ferry stops in Belek and from there you can walk.

Spice Bazaar

by AcornMan about spices

Although much smaller than the Grand Bazaar, the Spice Bazaar should not be missed because that is where you can shop for nearly any kind of food product you can think of. We fell in love with Turkish Delights, especially the honey-sweetened ones covered with powdered sugar with pistachios in them. These can be purchases by the kilo and the best part is that many of the stores will vacuum seal the boxes for you so they last longer. You can also purchase nearly any kind of spice imagineable, as well as all kinds of tea. If you like the apple tea you will no doubt taste sometime during your stay in Istanbul, this is the place to buy it.
