Cost of getting to/from sabiha gokcen airport to sultahamet

by canadiantraveller87

Could anyone tell me roughly how much of an ordeal/cost it would be to get from this airport into downtown istanbul and back? I am considering booking a flight that departs and arrives at this airport but I am aware that it is much further from the city than Ataturk. The flight I want to book is just so much cheaper! Is there a way of taking public transport to sabiha gokcen, or would we have to take a taxi? If so what would be the cost (roughly). No use in getting a cheap flight if it is going to cost us in the end... Thanks in advance everyone! :)

It's not really an ordeal per se, I don't think, but it is a long way.

My hotel would have charged the equivalent of 60 euro for a pick-up. Not sure if this is the same as the taxi cost (probably around 100YTL?). You might investigate what your hotel/hostel/whatever has on offer.

Otherwise you have a choice of bus to and then taxi or Metro/bus/tram/feet from within the city itself.

has useful info (scroll down for Sabiha Gokcen).

For my visit in early April this year (also staying in Sultanahmet) I too pondered time (1-1.5 hours at least) and effort against airfare. In the end I paid the extra fare (not actually a huge difference) and chose to land at Ataturk.

Noone can tell what a taxi will cost in Istanbul. It will cost as much as the taxi driver manage to squeeze out of you, and he is a professional (not at driving but at squeezing money out of you)!

There is a shuttle bus service that goes to Taxim that is very reasonably priced. From there you could get taxi or transfer to the tram/bus network.

Hope this helps

Hi,

You can take HAVAS shuttle bus to Taksim. It costs 13 Lira (7 Euro) and departs every half hour. Then you can take a taxi for around 12-13 Lira, or take the funicular to Kabatas, then the tram to Sultanahmet for 1.5 Lira.

Otherwise taxi will cost not less then a hundred I guess.

So, you can make it for 25 Lira or 15 Lira in total.

Actually there is another way, the cheapest: Take the public bus E-10 to Kadiköy, then boat (vapur) to Eminönü, and then the tram to Sultanahmet. This way will cost you around 2 Euro in total.

Best wishes,
Alper

I agree with Alper. Those are the best way to get Sultanahmet area. When you get to Taksim Square, it's easy to get whereever you wish.

Have a nice trip

Use counter, that's all.

by max_stirner

Yes you can use counter, it is trustable ; I take a taksi almost 300 times a year so I think I know what it is about. As there is no night fare anymore it is easier to deal.
I never have problem, almost never, maybe ones a year.

If You're Ever Lost. . .

by mrclay2000

If you get lost in the old section of Istanbul and don't recognize the forests of minarets, you might see the unique landmark called the Watch Tower, which roughly marks the middle of Old Stamboul. The tower overlooks the major mosque complex of Beyazit Cami, which itself sits next to Istanbul University. From here, Divanyolu Caddesi runs eastward to join St Sophia and the Blue Mosque, and other important landmarks.

Turkish Bath

by Erkmen

You may have heard of Turkish Baths or Locally called as Hamams.. In our daily life we dont use Turkish baths, Hamams have largely gone out of fashion in Turkey. However many historical hamams survive, and a visit is highly recommended..

Some historical hamams that I Remembar are as follows..

Cagaloglu Hamami: Built in 1741 in order to supply income to Aya sophia mosque. Built in Baroque style and has women and men sections seperately. On the left side of Yerebatan street near the St sophia..

Cemberlitas Hamami: Built in 1584 by Sultan Murad the third. Has only men section. Near the Cemberlitas monument, on Divanyolu (Between Sultanahmet and Covered bazaar)

Galata Hamami: Built in 1715 but massively renovated in 1965. During the renovations, lost some of its spirits.. Men section and a small ladies section.. Located near the Istiklal street, pera region..

What is special with a Turkish Bath; A raised marble platform graces the centre of the hamam. Known as the "gobek tasi", or navel stone, it is positioned above the wood or coal furnaces which heat the hamam. You shall lay on the marble platform, Care for the heat..

The water is coming from the Tabs and on one of themyou have the very hot water and the other very cold one.. You prepare a mixture with hot and cold.. While you are getting sweat, just pour the water from your body.. Now you feel that you are "Alive".

When I was in a hamam, I always think that the pleasure I got is somewhat not possible to explain by words. How many more typings I would made would not still make you understand the joy of it..

What I could suggest, if you have the opportunity do not miss it out..

Tesivikiye & Nisantasi

by parsix


Most visitor will never make it up here. This is a very trendy area with great option for shooping. This will be the equivalent to Knightsbridge, with many of the top brand shops like Gucci, Prada, etc.

At night the boutiques close but the two main roads: Abdi Ipeki Caddesi and Tesivikye Caddesi are light up and crowds arrive to a choice of eating places.

FENER GREEK BOYS HIGH SCHOOL (Megali Scholio)

by balhannah

This building (Fener Greek Boys High School) I came across on my ramblings around Fener/Balat. The district of Fener is one of the most ancient in Istanbul.

Referred to locally as the Red School, Fener Greek Boys High School is a much older institution than the building itself, which dates only from 1881. Fener Boys High School specialised in literature and history.
In Ottoman times most of the Greek notables were educated here, including many patriarchs and other officers of the church.
The lobed dome has a high drum and lantern light. In the high ceilinged top storey is an observatory with a telescope.

The school is visible from a considerable distance, and me, being adventurous, decided I had to find it! To reach it is a short but steep walk up the steep winding roads from the southern shore of the Golden Horn.

I had to stop and catch my breath! but I wasn't the only one!
A large, eye-catching building!
