6 hours transit at ataturk

Hi,

Do you have any suggestions on what to do, when we have a 6 hours transit between our flights?

Have been to the airport many times, and know every shop and cafe. Is it time enough to go shopping, or is it somewhere to shop close by?

Hi norwegiandanish,

You would be leaving the airport around 16.00 at best and will have to be back by 19.00 hours. So you have limited options.

1. You can go to one of the best meat restaurants in Istanbul at Florya, called Beyti, for an early supper. This restaurant is very famous. Just take a taxi and tell the driver you want to go to Beyti in Florya. Here's more info: "http://www.beyti.com/en/".

2. Or if you want shopping, just take the metro at the airport two stops to Yenibosna stop. Go to Airport mall at this metro stop. Lots of interesting stores, ice rink, and food court in this mall. Come back to the airport the same way. Here is more info: "http://www.airportavm.com.tr/".

good luck,

enigma...
