  DirectionsFrom Taksim Square
check out the video on our website or facebook page
If arriving via the Havitas airport bus which goes from both airports or on the metrotram system you will find yourself at taksim square notibly recognised by the large monument in the centre
Havitas bus cost 11 lira from IST and 14 from SAW.
Try to only have the bare minimum turkish lira with you before arrival as when you get to taksim sq. there are many currency exchanges with very compititve rates, much better than any western country
Either follow the crowds to Istiklal Caddesi (famous pedestrian shopping street) which joins taksim sq or look for the tram lines which circles the monument and follow them down Istiklal
You walk about 5 mins down Istiklal and take the 4th street on the left which is SADRI ALISIK SOKAK recognided most easily by the CAMPER store on the corner as the street name is not posted on the corner. If your confused on the other side of the street is a large department store called Demirören and a small mosque
Walk 200m down Sadri Alisik sokak to the end which goes down a bit of a hill after 100m. At the end of the street turn left and you should see AGA hamam on your right
Take the first right which corners the Hamam (10m) and we are the second building on the left and easily recognisable by the large grape vines growing up the front of the building

To get to taksim via the subwaymetro system follow the signs in the airport to the metro and take the train all the way to Aksaray then get get on the tram heading to Kabitas
Get out at Kabitash and board the Funicular which is a cable car that take you to taksim sqaure. This journey will cost you 9 Lira and the bus which is a far easier option will cost you 10 Lira

Taxis costs 50 Liras from Ataturk and close to 90 Liras from Sabiha Gokcen. ask to be taken to taksim
  AirportAtaturk Airport (20 km)
