Directions from Istanbul Ataturk Airport (IST)
Istanbul Ataturk Airport site was first opened as a military airfield and was originally named Yeşilköy Airport. Today it services thousands of international guests daily and is named after the founder of the Republic of Turkey. It is the busiest and largest airport in Turkey per number of passengers and aviation movements. It is also second only to Frankfurt in terms of non-stop destinations serviced there. Ataturk Airport is located around 23km from the city centre and the journey can be long in heavy traffic, which is frequent in the city. Your driver should take the exit to Bakırköy/Aksaray/Ankara onto E5/D100. They will then take an exit on the right that is labelled Okmeydanı/Kasımpaşa/Taksim and merge onto Piyalepaşa Bağlantı Yolu, then turn left onto Tarlabaşı Blv. This should then take you towards the central city, arriving at Taksim Gezi Park.
Directions from Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport (SAW)
Sabiha Gokcen Airport is named after Sabiha Gökçen, the first female combat pilot in Turkey and adoptive daughter of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founding President of the Republic of Turkey. It is an airport that services lower budget airlines and smaller flights, however it is still handling millions of passengers a year and thus is very busy. It is rather far out of the city, and therefore the drive is a long one. The fastest route also may take you down a toll road. Your taxi driver will leave the airport complex and go onto Havaalanı Kavşağı. He will get to a fork and follow the road marked İstanbul/Edirne and merge onto Anadolu Otoyolu/O-4/E80. The driver will follow this road for a distance, before turning onto Barbaros Blv and finally turning right onto Dolmabahçe Gazhane Cd. This road will lead to the central city of Istanbul, arriving in Taksim District.

In addition, tourists have reported problems with overcharging with local taxis and large costs when traffic slows your journey.
