  • Electricity:The electricity supply is 220 V, 50 Hz, with the type of sockets which are standard in most European countries.

 

  • Language:In Turkey the official language is Turkish. The Turkish language comes from Central Asian Languages Family and very different from the european languages. The Turkish alphabet is based on the latin alphabet. In general, in Istanbul many people talk English and you can easily communicate with other people. As İstanbul is a touristic city you can find many tourism offices.

Istanbul Where East meets West

Posted on July 14, 2015by icfpta

Some clues from booking.com

Istanbul is a smorgasbord of scents and sounds, infused with the characters of two continents.

Just before dawn, there’s an eerie silence in Istanbul before the city abruptly comes to life, as the call to morning prayer reverberates through the ancient markets and winding alleyways. Jump on the Bosporus ferry to experience a startling contrast between East and West.

Air – Istanbul Ataturk Airport

Istanbul’s main airport is 12.5 miles from the city center. Taxis are readily available and are the most convenient way to reach the center – they cost around TRY 45 and take 30 minutes in mild traffic. The Havatas Bus to Taksim Square is a better value. It departs every 30 minutes on the hour between 4 am – 1 am, costs around TRY 10, and takes around 30 minutes. From Taksim Square, catch either a taxi or the metro to your end destination.

Metro

The “Hafif Metro” is very efficient. There are two main lines: Yenikapı to Ataturk Airport (M1A) and Yenakapi to Haciosman (M2). The M1 runs every 5 minutes from 6 am – 12:30 am from Monday to Saturday, and every 8 minutes on Sunday. The M2 line runs from 6:15 am – 12:30 am Monday to Saturday (from 6:30 am on Sunday). To use the Metro, purchase a token from a machine or swipe an “Istanbulkart” (available at some Biletmatik machines) to pass through the turnstiles.

istanbul-ulasim.com.tr

Taxi

Taxis are easy to find – just stop at a taxi stand or hail one from the street. They’re reasonably priced compared to prices in Western Europe and the U.S., making them an affordable way to travel. Official taxis are bright yellow with the words “taksi” on top, and always have digital meters. Language is often an issue, so always have your destination written on a piece of paper. If you go through tolls, these will be added to the final charge.

Bus

City center bus service hubs include Taksim Square, Aksaray and Beşiktaş on the European side, and Üsküdar and Kadıköy on the Asian side. Bus shelter stops are easily available on the main routes. Services run from 6:30 am – 11:30 pm and destinations are displayed on the front of the bus. Ticket prices vary by destination and must be purchased from the white booths near major stops before boarding. Purchase an Akbil or “Istanbul Kart” to save on fares.

Car

Traffic in Istanbul is often heavy and it can take longer to cross the city by car than by public transportation. Drivers are also known to be quite aggressive. There are few multi-story car parks in the city and on-street parking can be difficult to find. However, road conditions in Istanbul are moderate, less so outside the main centers. If you do decide to drive, renting a GPS device with the latest updated maps is recommended.

Ferry

Ferries and “sea buses” are a fun and fast way to move between the European and Asian sides. There are four ferry companies in operation; the fastest and most popular is IDO. The major docks on the European side can be found in Eminönü, Sirkeci and Karaköy. Tickets cost around TRY 3 for a single economy class ticket (around TRY 1.95 with an Istanbulkart), which can be purchased at the ferry terminal. Note that timetables change seasonally.

Imagine the worst traffic jam and double it. Traffic problems are a hot topic in Istanbul, and it’s as much a race for survival as it to get to your destination.

First impressions count for a lot in Turkey. Speak highly of the country’s natural resources, people and geography, and describe any positive travel experiences you’ve had in Turkey in detail.

Turks tend to be indirect at first, but warm up quickly. People are generally inquisitive and curious, warm and friendly, and place a high cultural value on being hospitable.

Tipping your head forward means ‘yes’; lifting your head backwards and raising your eyebrows means ‘no’.

Eye contact is important in Turkey. Maintaining direct eye contact while speaking to someone is a sign of sincerity. It’s also quite common to be stared at in public places – this is normal.

Popular Attractions

We handpicked the top 10 classic sights, sorted by distance from where you’re staying

Dolmabahce Palace

Museums

Apartments with 285 rooms are hard to come by, but that’s exactly what Sultan Abdülmecid I was after. In 1856, he, his wife, children and pet hamster moved in with 6 other sultans. Blending Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassical influences, Dolmabahce’s amenities include 68 toilets, 6 steam rooms, dozens of opulent chandeliers, its own clock tower – and now even Wi-Fi.

  • Only 2.4 km away
  • Dolmabahçe Caddesi, Beşiktaş (across from the İnönü – Beşiktaş soccer stadium)
  • millisaraylar.gov.tr
  • Open Tuesday and Wednesday 9 am – 4 pm, Friday to Sunday 9 am – 4 pm

Taksim Square

Landmarks

Taksim Square might be associated with recent political unrest, but a trip here paints a vastly different picture. The square is the heart of modern Istanbul and functions mainly as a transportation hub. It’s also a popular entertainment area, surrounded by shops, restaurants and local cafes. Cross town on the historic tram for a nostalgic touch of old Istanbul.

  • Only 3.7 km away
  • Beyoğlu, Tak-ı Zafer Cd, 34435 Gümüşsuyu
  • Open every day

Galata Tower

Monuments

Inmates imprisoned here during the Ottoman era would imagine flying across the Bosporous to freedom. Centuries later, Hezarfen Ahmet Celebi did just that, an early aviator who flew on artificial wings straight to the Anatolian side. These days, Galata Tower’s famous 360° panoramic views of the city and its popular restaurant offer plenty of fun for all visitors.

  • Only 5.1 km away
  • Bereketzade Mh., Galata Kulesi, Beyoğlu
  • ibb.gov.tr
  • Open every day 9 am – 8 pm

Topkapi Palace

Monuments

Once upon a time, the Sultanate moved across town, and left behind 173 acres of prime real estate. Built in 1478, Topkapi Palace was the heart and mind of the Ottoman Empire for centuries. What lay abandoned in 1853 was restored 50 years later, when the palace became one of Istanbul’s premier museums, with elaborate courtyards, gates and a harem that remain largely intact.
