'Boys' Activities in Istanbul

Hi All,

I live in Istanbul and my brother and some friends of his are coming here for his 30th birthday. I was hoping to organise some kind of activity for e.g. go karting, paintball etc. Does anyone know of any activities/companies that are available?

Thanks :)

Hi cint,

Busy-retired made some good suggestions. Additionally you can take the kids for swimming and water sliding at the Bahcesehir Aqua Club: "www.aquaclubdolphin.com/iletisim-ulasim.html". Or you could also take them to the wonderful Aquarium: "tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293974-i368-k3220…".

good luck,

enigma...

>> Kids? These guys are in their 30s!! <<

Not only that, but the OP is asking a travel forum for advice about how to celebrate a birthday. (??) Perhaps starting with the more appropriate demographic, e.g., asking 30 yo Istanbulus how'd they'd spend their birthday if they their choice.

Maybe something spectacularly Turkish - like Al Jamal...

Have a look at Kozano's blog for details but it sounds ideal! Not a cheap night out but a memorable one.

The venue address has changed since this blog was written but if you search Al Jamal on the forum, you will find the recent thread about it.
