SOME TRAVEL TIPS

Passports, visas etc.

Check that your travel documents are up to date in plenty of time.

Packing for the conference

Take your papers and any important files in your carry-on luggage, as well as a spare shirt or top, underwear, and socks, toothbrush etc. Think about what you would do if your check-in luggage were lost and pack accordingly. Although these incidents rarely happen in Turkey, it is a fact that, at worldwide congresses or conferences, many people are distressed when such instances do occur.

Items not allowed on planes

Do not pack any knives, sharp objects, liquids or gels, or fruit in your carry-on luggage. Take an EMPTY water bottle to the airport and refill it AFTER you have passed through Security.

Local Transportation

Within the city you can use public buses, tram, train, taxi, boat and minibuses.
