there is every 1 hour bus take 4-5 hours cost 5usd
train also there is 4 route take same time and cost
hope this help you
thanks very much for that.... I have now been looking up more details.
I want to see Aleppo ,Palmyra and Damascus. Do you think it is better for me to go to Palmyra from Aleppo, or go to Damascus and then do Palmyra as a day trip ? I will spend four days all up in Syria and want to see Palmyra and Damascus. Also to travel from Damascus to Amman, how long does that take allowing for border controls and shared taxi ( costs ).
you can stay 1 or 2 night in aleppo and then go to Palmyra vıa Homs and saty 1 nıght there then go to Damascus .
for the Amman . i don.t know but i think it take about 2-4 hours and cost you by bus about 15-20usd
wish you all the best
Travel Tips for Istanbul
thanks for the info 0Zan,
i have not made any definate plans of what to see and where to go,
but obviously i intend to see some of the regular tourist sites.
and will look at your tips soon.
initially i thought it might be a good idea to stay on the asian
side for starters at least,but i have not managed to find many hotels online.
for example what is the area on the coast near pendick like,as it is not far from the airport,is it a nice seaside area or industrial??
Just on the edge of Bosphorus.. Just next to the second bridge.. On one of the most elegant districts.. A House of seven floors with red tiles from the 19th Century...
But all alone.. nobody dares to live.. The value could worths millions and millions of dollars.. But it is Haunted..
nobody lives there... the Haunted house of Istanbul..

The Yeni Cami (The New Mosque)
The Yeni Cami is not one of the must see mosques in Istanbul but it is worth a visit if you are area of the Spice Bazaar or have a few moments before your cruise up the Bosphorus sets off. This the case with me and I felt that the mosque was well worth a visit. The mosque is one of the oldest and largest in Istanbul. It was begun in 1597 and took about forty years to complete. Like many Ottoman mosques the interior is decorative to the point of awe inspiring.
The mosque is located virtually across the street from the Spice Bazaar in the Emin?n? district on the edge of the Golden Horn.
It is open during daylight hours but non Muslims should not enter during prayer times.
Whatever you want!
Istambul is like a huge shop, there's thousands of shops everywhere where you can buy whatever you want.
The only difference is that you have to discuss the price of the things, you'll become an expert in only a couple of days...
There are more than one baazar, I went to the Egipcian Baazar (smaller and less people) and the Grand Baazar
