The town was nice. The old houses are great for photograph. There are lots of mini restaurants for breakfast. But it is as crowded as hell. We couldn't find a place to park the car and waited in car for 30 mins. Better to visit...More

Probably the cheapest and easiest way for a solo traveler without a car is to get by bus to "Istanbul Otogari" located near the old city in Fatih area (every 5 minutes), and from there take inter-city bus to bursa (every 3 hours). Times I got from rome2rio website. I am not sure of frequency during late nights. If you are driving, you can drive from Ataturk to Asian Istanbul via the new underwater crossing (accessible from Kennedy cadisi), continue to reach "Osman Gazi Bridge" then cross over to Yalova, and then continue to Bursa. This is the fastest way I can think of. If you are driving, you can go to Yenikapi Ferry station just east of Old City on Kennedy Cadisi, and take a fast ferry to Mudainya near Bursa (car can be taken with you), and then drive to Bursa. From Ataturk to Yenikapi it will take about 30 to 1 hour depending on traffic. There are three trips daily, morning around 10:30, afternoon 2:30, and evening 7:00 (check schedules at ido web site). Fast ferry will take about 2 hours. From Mudayna to Bursa is about 45 to 1 hour depending on traffic and exact location in Bursa. You can also go from Yenikapi to Yalova, and then drive to Bursa. Check ido for schedule. If schedules work for you, you can take taxi to Yenikapi, then go as pedestrian in fast ferry, and then taxi from Mudanya to Bursa. I have not used the bus route, so I can not comment on that. I have used the fast ferry several times, and it is a wonderful trip -- if it fits in your schedule do not miss it.
