With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to

Hey cinegard, I have a question about the shuttle service from Efendi between the two airports in Istanbul. We are going to Kuala Lumpur via Istanbul and on the way back we only have 5 hours to switch between the two airports. We first thought about taking the shuttle bus but it takes around 3 hours which is not really an option. Can you remember how long it took with Efendi shuttle ? I really would be thankful for an answer. With kind regards Melli
