  • Amazing place, we spend five hours there hiking at the beautiful nature around the lake . fantastic sighting .  more »
  • The arboretum is a simple botanical garden, fairly nice and peaceful but with little information and no eating allowed. TL5 on weekdays. The best thing for tourists who can't find other hiking options...  more »
  • Try to visit "the first thing " in the morning. Great place, quiet and Peaceful. Go and listen to your soul. You can spend min. 2 hours walking in a great forrest.  more »

  • Atatürk Arboretumu can be both described as a park and a small forest. It makes for a great hiking and picnic area. Great for day outs and getting away from the big city.
  • A good place to spend the morning or afternoon with the family. Man made with a variety of plants. I especially liked the walk around the lake.
  • Wonderful! One should spare the whole day to see it entirely.
  • A beautiful showdown from the nature.. Though created by man.
  • Excellent view, such a great place to runaway from the city. Only problem is the absence of a shop or cafe. And they don't allow your food or water in there

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
