Most visited locations in Istanbul
Most sights are in the old city on the peninsula of Sultanahmet. Those are across the Horn to Beyoglu, Galata, and Taksim. While Kadikoy is a significant district on the comparatively less visited Anatolian side of the city. The most popular locations include Aya Sofya, Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Camii), Hippodrome, Grand Bazaar and Galata Tower.
The black sea forms the northern boundary of Istanbul. Istanbul has oceanic climate, influenced by a continental climate. Its summers are hot and humid, while its winters are cold, wet and snowy.
Public Transportation in Istanbul
Istanbul's public system can be challenging to figure out, because maps are rare and you often have to transfer to another bus and pay another fare, to get to your destination. If you want to use a tram, bus, metro or boat, you will need to use a token. Tokens are available at several ticket kiosks and token machines in front of the stations.
You can only pay in cash (Turkish lira), no credit cards or foreign currency is accepted. The Istanbul subway system does not offer transfer tickets and for every new line you'll have to pay a fare. In cases you use a Istanbulkart or Akbil you won't pay extra.
Transportation options from Istanbul Airport
Istanbul Airport is the main one that serves the city of Istanbul from October 2018. Currently, there is only one terminal that offers domestic and international flights. The terminal services include ATMs, duty-free shops, hotels, shopping malls, entertainment areas, restaurants and bars.
If you want to access the airport via public transportation, your options include buses and airport taxis that are available 24/7. Currently, only Havaist and ?ETT buses provide the transfers to Istanbul, but two Metro lines in the future will also link the city. Car rental and private airport transfer service are other available options at Istanbul International. Car rental is available online or via on-airport rental car providers that have information desks in the Terminal. The taxi rank is outside the Arrivals area, or you can always order an airport taxi ahead.
