Istanbul Airport to Kadikoy

Istanbul Airport to Kadikoy

One thing that can be arduous for a traveler even than the actual journey, is transportation to the final destination when the road transit is besieged by a slow vehicle, overwhelming traffic, and uncomfortable seating positions that may span for a time as lengthy as the flight.

Every traveler loves to get an airport shuttle that’s always on ground, and that will transport them to their respective hotels in the shortest time; and if possible, without all the hassles. Some hotels will do pick up services for the guests they are expecting, but only if the two destinations are proximate or if it is part of the services they offer.

But if you’re traveling from the European to the Asian side of Istanbul, you will have to book a shuttle service personally. Traveling from the new Istanbul Airport to Kadikoy, two locations on different sides of the city, you will need an airport shuttle that can accommodate your bags, family (if you’re travelling with them) and get you to your hotel in a time relatively faster.

Kadıköy is a laid-back residential neighborhood on the Asian shore of Istanbul. Prominent for its lively fish market and streets with colorful graffiti housing indie boutiques, hip cafes and Anatolian eateries, Kadıköy is a beautiful destination to spend your holidays. The neighborhood has scenic shores that extend across the Sea of Marmara to the Sultanahmet skyline.

Though a venerable favorite of the locals, expatriates are now starting to make frequent visits to the Arkaoda. A bar located right in the middle of Kadıköy’s Barlar Sokaği, Arkaoda is renowned for its broad garden which opens all year round, and heated in the winter. It’s a wonderful spot for relaxation during the day. It also always lively in the night as the bar plays host to local and international DJs, as well as the occasional indie bands for those with an exotic taste for music.
