From Alexandroupolis to Istanbul  (4 Answers)

Well I need to get to Istanbul to meet my fiance's side of the family, but I can only get a ticket to Alexandroupolis,so I was wondering how will I get from the airport to Istanbul and has anyone taken the route before? Are there fixed timetables for the buses, how long will the ride be and when I get to the Turkish border what happens? Do I need a VISA to enter or will the bus driver just cruise through lol? Also once I'm done at getting through customs(at Alex... airport) where shall I go to catch a bus? Is it close by, can one walk or have to catch a taxi to the station? And what is the name of the station lol? (I know this is a lot of info needed, but I'm terrible at traveling, lets hope I don't forget my passsport)

Bus or Train?  (1 Answer)

Hi! I have a similar problem to another poster. I'm traveling from Alexandroupolis to Istanbul. I have been told the busses are faster! One bus for example goes from Edirne to Istanbul in half the time it takes the train! One problem I can see is, the drop off point in Istanbul is more convenient at the train station than the bus station, way out of town. The negative is the train leaves at noon and doesn't get into Istanbul until 8 PM. Does anyone have more recent information or has anyone actually done this?

Istanbul - Alexandroupolis  (2 Answers)

Hi, I will be traveling from Istanbul to Alexandroupolis in April 2008.
I prefer taking a train but from schedule looks like it leaves Ist. 8PM
and arrives to Alexandroupolis around midnight, too late to look for a nice place to stay (2-3days) and I dont like to book a hotel in advance in unknown place before checking it first. Do you have any suggestions? How are the buses on the same route? I have heard they take twice as long and less comfortable, but hopefully come at decent times. Or maybe you know nice and not expensive hotel (motel, guest house?) in Alexandroupolis you can recommend? (but what if I show up 1AM and door is locked?)
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

get to Istanbul  (1 Answer)

I have to travel from Alexandroupolis (actually from Komotini) to ISTANBUL on March 6th or 7th. I can leave from Greece as from about 6pm. If not posssible on the 6th at this time, I can travel on the 7th, as soon as possible in the morning, so to arrive in Istanbul in the (late) morning.
Could anyone advice me how is it best to travel and what the timetables are?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Search for Alexandroupolis residents  (3 Answers)

Hi all,

Dear Moschos,

I was in Alexandroupolis 4 years ago and have some very good friends living there. Recently I lost my mobile telephone at an airport with all my contact numbers in Alexandroupolis. I moved to London but now live in Chicago. Is there any chance any of you know a Giorgos V(B)oulgaridis? He is a 34 year old art teacher who used to live in Paris with me. He had an elder brother Tasos who died some years ago of cancer. He lived at Kritis 2 in Alexandroupolis with his parents but may have moved. If not, do you know Billis? He is a crazy taxi driver who has all sorts of videos and music in his disco taxi. Stellios is a very close friend of Giorgos but I do not know his last name, his sister and brother in law run a souvlaki shop in the centre of the city. Another is captain George Katsaros who is now living in Athens. All of them are around the same age 34/35. Another is Illias Karamanlis who also was driving a taxi but does all sorts of things, club owner etc. If you happen to know of these people please could you help me contact them again. They are very dear to me and I do not wish to lose touch.
