I m from Singapore and traveling to Istanbul from 17 to 25 Dec 2010. Will be going with the missus and 3 young children (5, 6 and 10 years old). We don't ski but wanted to let the children see and play in snow since it is the x'mas period thus i was wondering if Kartepe or Uludag is better. I have the following questions:
1. Will we get snow in Kartepe during 20 to 25 Dec? Or will it at least be covered with snow? The minimum is that the children can enjoy a white x'mas. If there is no chance of the greenpark resort area being covered with snow then i would rather drop this option. However, as it is nearer, cheaper and less crowded thus for practical reasons this is my preferred option.
2. If Uludag is a better option snow wise, what is the best and cheapest way to get there. Do remember i am traveling with young children and are on our own. I also do not wish to drive myself as i am not a good driver.
