Travel to Istanbul During Kurban Bayrami

Jump to last reply

I recently purchased tickets to go to Istanbul and Athens from Boston. After (of course) when I was doing some reading about Istanbul I discovered that we will be traveling on the dates of Kurban Bayrami, a 5 days religious holiday in Turkey. Could anyone out there tell me how this will impact our trip besides the Grand Bazaar and Spice Bazaar being closed? I plan to rent an apartment and am looking over in the Cihangir area of Istanbul.

We have to get to the airport on Oct. 8th (Ataturk) to go to Athens and I have read that travel during that time period can be very bad. I would love to hear from those who may know, what the real scope is.
