    Accommodation, student residence in Ankara.. How much can it cost... Should be near the metu...

    This depends on your preference. Do you want to rent a flat? Or need a residence type accommodation? METU has good dormitories. This must be your first option. Secondly, you can rent a flat at 100. YIL. 100. YIL is next to METU just at its back gate. Around 100. YIL, you can rent flats at Cigdem, Karakusunlar, Cukurambar (expensive). The best transportation is from 100. YIL since it is 10 minutes walking to the dorm district of METU. Also as an alternative, you can find students looking for flatmates. These ads generally on the ad boards of the dormitories. Ankara, but specifically around METU is a bit expensive in terms of rent. A flat will cost you min. around $500. You can contact me for specific details and questions. I am living in Ankara and also am a graduate of METU. almost 7 years ago

    Petite (5ft), Asian female traveling solo for the first time. I'm thinking of visiting Istanbul and nearby areas in mid Sep. Is it safe?

    There are so many places to see in Istanbul. But first, Istanbul is a safe place. Yet of course as in every big and popular city, you should be careful since there are some places that cannot be safe for a person. This is the same in NY, London, Tokyo etc. The same goes for Istanbul. Here are my suggestions: Take the boat trip on the Bosphorus. You will see many historical places and also it is relaxing. Take care against the wind on the boat. You already have seen Sultanahmet etc. You can see Taksim Beyoglu Istiklal Caddesi, the old tunnel, Galata Tower, Eminonu Kapali Carsi, Mısır Çarşısı, Ortakoy, Yerebatan Sarnıcı, Aya İrini, Topkapi Museum, Pierre Loti, Dikilitaş, Çemberlitaş, Rumeli Hisarı, Yıldız Sarayı & Parki, Kiz Kulesi (Anatolian Side). You can also see the Prince Islands and have a phaeton trip in Buyukada (biggest Island). Sile, Agva are some places where you can have see view, fish food, and natural sightseeings. Other than places in Istanbul, you can have a trip to Pamukkale (in Denizli city), and Cappadocia/Urgup. Here is a list of feautred destinations: http://www.goturkey.com/turkiye.php?content=pdestinations&lng=en You can write for detailed information.. Have a nice trip... about 7 years ago

    What should the average price of a taxi from ataturk airport to sultanahmet be??

    I am not sure about the price but I would suggest you to take the subway. With only one transfer from one subway to another, you can arrive at Sultanahmet faster than a taxi since you can come across a traffic jam depending on your flight arrival. If you do have a lot of luggage, then ignore my suggestion. None of the transport options (other than taxi) would be comfortable with a large luggage. over 7 years ago

    Do you recommend visiting turkey with kids (3-12 yrs).

    That would be a good plan for a holiday in Istanbul. I hope you will be fascinated in Black Sea region when you see the nature and mountains there. You can see some Black Sea tour plans on Turkish travel agencies' web sites. If not, let me know and I can send you some links and details. (ie: in Turkish - http://www.ayder.com.tr/turdetay_-1772.html). Route (please verify on maps): -Sile+Agva, -Zonguldak(nothing here), -Bartin (nothing very much), -Safranbolu (Unesco Cultural Heritance/Historical houses + A big canyon, eat/buy lokum), -Amasra (sea, swimming, fish/food), -Sinop (a city to see) -Samsun (nothing to much as well as I know) -Ordu (sightseeing, etc.) -Trabzon (Sumela Monastery, Natural sightseeings/Uzungol, beautiful plateaus + stay on some pensions&hotels in those plateaus) And for the accommodation, I am not sure if you want especially family accommodation but you can find many hotels, pensions on each destination. You should be aware that since it is the season, you may have difficulty in finding availability in good hotels. And for food, you can find fast food restaurants in city centrums; and also can find fast food (hamburgers, pizzas etc) in almost every destination. And if you like to taste a different cuisine, you can taste Turkish food and Black Sea cuisine. You can find almost everywhere some classical Turkish food: lahmacun, pide, kebab, chicken sis, grills, fish etc. Let me know if you would like more details ;) Have a nice trip and holiday. over 7 years ago

    Hubby & I planning long weekend Nov Istanbul. Even though no State Dept warnings not sure if all is "rosy" in Turkey. Any comments?

    Istanbul is safe. And nearly all of the cities of Turkiye, too. Just keep a bit far away from some districts and that is enough. As suggested above, you can ask your hotel staff which areas to avoid. over 7 years ago

    We want to self drive through Turkey Syria Jordan. Is it possible to take a hirecar across the borders? If not, what's the alternative?

    Exp: I am giving the taxi alternative since I think it will be a cheaper solution than car rental + you will have the taxi driver as a guide. And an update I got yesterday: On some days, Syria closes the borders with Turkiye and and also on some days Turkiye closes the borders with Syria, too. + There is a bit an increasing tension between Turkiye and Syria... over 7 years ago

    We want to self drive through Turkey Syria Jordan. Is it possible to take a hirecar across the borders? If not, what's the alternative?

    Hello, Hatay, in the southest of Turkiye, has a direct border with Syria. And you can find taxis instead of car rental to go to Syria. I am not sure whether they accept going to Jordan but why not. It depends on the money I guess. However, that would not be a good plan since the political situation in Syria is not stable for months. It would be better to by-pass Syria and go directly to Jordan by plane. There are direct flights from Turkiye to Jordan. over 7 years ago
