Getting around Istanbul and safety issues for women

Jump to last reply

HI

I'm heading to a conference in Istanbul travelling as a solo woman

I like looking around myself but am aware of safety issues travelling solo

I'm arriving at airport late at night, hotel is very close, is a taxi a safe option generally?

My hotel is close to the international airport so a bit of a distance from the main sites, looks like there's a light rail nearby, how is this for an option to get to old area of city

What about returning at night taxi versus trains etc?

Any useful tips greatly received!!
