If you came to Istanbul on a budget airline you will most likely arrive to Sabiha Gokcen Airport located in the Asian Side. It’s not close to the city centre but there are a few ways to get to the centre of the city, Sultanahmet or Taksim etc.

How to get from Sabiha Gokcen Airport to Sultanahmet or Taksim?

Airport Bus: There’s airport bus provided by Havas taking you to Taksim Square. Price is reasonable. Duration is about an hour.

Public Transport: Take the bus E10 to Kadikoy. It takes about 1 hour. Take the ferry from Kadikoy to Eminonu. Ferry ride is enjoyable. You don’t get bored. Sultanahmet is just 20 minutes walk from Eminonu. You can follow the tourists walking to Sultanahmet. In the daytime you can both find bus and ferry quite easily. To go to Taksim take the ferry to Karakoy. There you can find a lot of city buses going to Taksim area.
