Getting to Istanbul
Istanbul has a very strategic location. The city is easily accessed by many kind of transportation such as train, airplane, and bus. Atatürk Airport is famous as one of the most busiest airports in Turkey. Furthermore, with the international direct flight from Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, and Singapore, Istanbul is only within the reach of a blink.
Weather in November
Turkey has land in both Europe and Asia making it a rare transcontinental country. There’s different weather around Turkey but temperatures remain relatively warm even in winter. Some coastal destinations are great for sun in November, such as places on the popular Aegean and Mediterranean coasts, although you’ll get more rain as winter gets closer. Places on the Black Sea coast have more rain all year round, while destinations on the Sea of Marmara have less.
The average high in popular Antalya on the south coast is 20ºC in November, which is perfectly warm enough for you to spend the day at the beach. Bring some warmer clothes for the evenings though as it cools to quite a chilly 9ºC at night. The sea temperature is 22ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 130mm of rain over eight days, and you can expect ten hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate. Sunset’s just before 5pm for much of the month.

Hotel Accommodation and Public Transportation
Taxis are good transportation to get around Istanbul. They are inexpensive, have meters and most of the time easy to find. Your hotel can call one for you as well. After midnight, taxi drivers charge double. Public transportation works well, is inexpensive, but at least the tram between Zeytinburnu and Kabatas is often quite crowded. There are 2 metro lines. One from the Atatürk Ariport to Aksaray and one from 4 Levent to Taksim. There are 4 tram lines and the most useful one for turists is the one between Zeytinburnu (where you can change for the metro to Atatürk Airport) and Kabatas (near Dolmabahce Palace).
