Hello community! I´m Coty from Uruguay, smiley girl who is travelling soon to Finland.
As I got the cheapest flight to Europe I´m flying with Turkish Airlines to Istanbul and need to wait there from 21.50 (time i´m arriving) to 8.45 (time plane departures)

I´m always thinking on strange idea... somebody else would just say.. ok I have to stay 11hours waiting and walking around the airport but I´m now asking you some thinigs to see if it is possible to leave the airport for some hours, do a night trip and come back.

Here comes my questions:
1. Do anybody know if I can go out of the airport during that hours?
2. Do I have to pay to go out and inside again, like migration tax or something llike that?
3. Is it easy transportation and how much does it cost from airport to the city and vice versa (no taxi ), center, or some cool place to visit at night? Because I will arrive at night and need to go back to airport early in the morning 6.30 may be back.
4. Do you think there are good places to visit at night? Do you actually think this is a good idea? Or I just should take some pills and sleep all 11 hours in the floor at the airport :)?
5. Would somebody give me a night tour in the city? :))

Hope to listen to you guys!
Cheers,

coty

Wow! yes, that is great it´s the Cs meeting that day. Then if everything is ok at the airport I come there.

Is that HAVATAS Shuttle bus agency inside the airport?

I will start travellig from wednesday 12 midday so i´m not sure if i can get in touch with you the night before but i will have all the details of the place of the meeting so I can come directly there right after I land at Istanbul.
Where can i get info of this meeting?

thanks again!

Good good!
I´m gonna check where is the next meeting then and see where I can dropp off the bus.

I will text you Timur from my uruguayan cellphone (then please tell me if you got it or not) to see if you are actually getting the sms. If not, it is ok, i think i can find the way to arrive to this meeting.

Bye!

Hi timur, you know that i commited a mistake, i´m arriving to istanbul the night of thursday 13th, not tomorrow,
so it is a shame i cannot be there for the weekly meeting.
Is it something else going on?

Somebody else who would like to join for a night meeting?

Cheers!
