by HINAQURESHI

Hi!
Can fellow travellers inform me about the following:

1.What is the most comfortable and cheapest way of going to Princess Islands from Eminonu?

2.What does it cost?

3.What is the price of the longway tour of the fayton?

4.How many people can sit in one fayton?

Thanks

Re: Princess Islands queries.

by AlperIst

Hi,

1. From Eminönü you need to go to Kabatas (by tram) or Kadiköy (by boat-vapur) for 1.5 TL.
2. 3TL to the islands.
3. I don't know which island you mean, but probably Büyükada. A return tour to the hill costs 35TL, one-way 20TL. You can also circ<le all the island around (Büyük Tur), will cost more.
4. Faytons are for 4 people.

Cheers :)

Travel Tips for Istanbul

Inside the Blue Mosque

by JeremiahK

Take a quiet walk inside the blue mosque and be sure to sit down on the carpeted floor. I think the interior is best appreciated from a humble, low position, the height at which one would be praying. Look upwards, trying to ignore the bustle of tourists and admire the beauty of the place.

TEA, yes I drank TEA

by Martin_S.

Yes I drank TEA, hard to believe, me an American who has not drank Tea since we threw all the English tea into the sea in Boston....^O^
But here in Turkey it is the national drink...yes TEA, not Coffee, even though the coffee is called "Turkish Coffee". The tea has no special name, just TEA. It is usually served in a small hourglass shaped glass with several cubes of sugar alongside. If you get served the tea in a procelin cup with handle it means they have spotted a tourist and it costs 3-4 times as much. Most of the places served for 1-1.5 Turkish Lira and on the ferry boat it was only 0.5...but in the "fancy" places we saw it for 5-6 and even 7...

When Will You Be Visiting Lovely Istanbul?

by H-TownJourneyman

Between the couple of trips to Istanbul I have made, both were in different seasons, one in summer, and one during the winter. This made all of the difference in the world in regards to clothing! In the summer, it was warm enough to wear short sleeve shirts, even short pants, on most days. But during the winter, it was tremendously cold, it even snowed several days I was here. A thick jacket, long sleeve shirt, and jeans or pants were a must! So depending on the time of year you visit, adjust the wardrobe you bring accordingly.

2 constants that a visitor to Istanbul will want, regardless of the season - confortable walking shoes, and a good camera! I did so much walking here, even with my cushioned athletic shoes, my feet were still sore after each day. Worth every blister I got though! :) And if you have a digital camera, try to have a large-capacity media card or memory stick. So many photo opportunties here it will blow your mind! :)

Polonezkoy

by ozalp

This is a small village near Black Sea coast. This land is given to Polish people in 1842 by Ottoman Empire. They've been living here since this time. The history of the village is here:
http://www.polonezkoy.com/history.html

Polonezkoy is a little bit far from Istanbul's city center. It is between forests and its nature is under the effect of Black Sea. This means it is always green, but in spring it's more than green. You can see many colors in April and May here, because wild flowers are all over the place. It is possible to stay here, too. There are many pensions and they serve great breakfast in the morning. In a busy city, Polonezkoy is like heaven. But in the weekends it turns into a hell.

If you try to go there after 11:00 am by your car in a sunny day, you'll stuck in a chaos of cars. If you want to see this beauty, I recommend you to do it when we all working in our offices.

You can find some local products, like wild berries, vegetables, chestnut, jams... They are expensive but recommendable. Also it is posible to ride horses here. You can do trekking, too.
