  Ballon at Kadikoy
by Erkmen

If you plan to visit Istanbul, watch out this new activity which has started on September 15th. 2003..

Watch Istanbul up above 200 meters in a Baloon.. TurkBaloon is the project name and Istanbul city Municipality is arranging this activity.. A huge ballon which can carry up to 30 people at one time will rise up 200 meters above the sea level.. The ballon will move only up and down..

The Ballon is taking off near from the Sea bus port at Kadikoy, The Port on the Asian Side.. If you take a ferry from Eminonu to Kadikoy, it will take you to Kadikoy ferry port in 25 minutes.. There you need to walk around 150 meters to the Seabus port to the right side.. and the base for the Ballon is there.. Due to the size of the Ballon you can see it easily..

The price of the tour is 15 million TRL.. Roughly 10,- Euro.. The ballon is operating from 09:00 to 18:00, however in the first days they plan to operate till midnight due to high demand..

Address: Kadikoy Seabus port..
