Just take the tram from sultan ahmed to katabs station ( end of the line ) , you will find prier in front of the station , choose the IDO ships that go to bostanci prier , when you reach bostanci go out of the prier take your left for about 20 meter and stand waiting for the free shuttle bus of viaport mall , the IDO schedule do not match with shuttle bus so you have a long waiting time , the boat at 9.20 from katabas arrive bostanci at 9.40 . the shuttle bus is at 11.00 ( duration by bus to the mall is 45 minutes )

Great suggestion from egyptmmmx. I 'd like to give an alternative route:

Take the ferry from Eminönü to Kadıköy and hop on a dolmuş (heading towards Bostancı - sahilden). Get off the dolmuş at the last stop (which is merely in front of the IDO ferry pier in Bostancı) and catch the next shuttle to Viaport which runs on the hour every hour.

Best of luck,

wandererjacque, To add to the remarks above, Kabatas - Bostanci seabus works only weekdays. You can wait at Cafe Nero while waiting for the free shuttle bus of Viaport at Bostanci. If you miss the bus on the return, you can take a taxi for a short ride to Sabiha gokcen airport and take the bus E-11 or E-10 back to Kadikoy. From Kadikoy take a ferry back to Eminonu, and a tyram from Eminonu to Sultanahmet.

good luck,

Exactly! Not only is it far away from the city center but also it is one of the largest malls in the city. Definitely a whole day outing.

Have fun,

Is this the mall beside/ near Vialand? Can we perhaps take the free Vialand shuttle? Or, is this a different mall?

The mall beside Vialand is Vialand shopping mall (in Eyub on the European side). This one is Viaport in Kurtköy, on the Asian side. They are 70 km apart.

I would like to ask if I can go to Viaport by taking the ferry that departs Kabtas to princess island till Kadikoy and take the dolmush to Bostanci instead of waking up very early to catch the 9.20 IDO boat from Kabtas and waiting for more than an hour to take the shuttle bus at 11.

Mohamed, There are regular and frequent ferry services between Kabatas and Kadikoy. Have a look: "sehirhatlari.com.tr/en/timetable/kadikoy-kab…". So catch any of those ferries to Kadikoy and the dolmush from Kadikoy to Bostanci.
