Istanbul travel help

Hi Italki,

In January I am going with some friends to Istanbul for a few days. I will be flying into the airport on the 8th. They are coming with a bus from the Balkans to the Emniyet Garajı bus station on the 9th and I want to meet them there. What is the best way to the bus station from Sultanahmet square? We are staying at the Sultan hostel nearby. It is a 30 minute walk but I would prefer to take public transportation. Thanks!

Dear Natalie,

Take the taxi.In Istanbul is taxi very cheap. You can ask the driver the price, before you leave.
