Yalova is a small city and for the most part very walkable. In the warm months, Gazi Paşa Caddesi is very popular for strolling with tourists and locals alike. To get to Gazi Paşa Cad. from the İDO terminal, go straight along Yali Cad. towards town, and cross directly over the large intersection at Heykel.
Yalova has a few tourist attractions, including the Yürüyen Köşk, an Ottoman-Turkish style mansion that was used by Atatürk, the founder of the modern Turkey, during his visits to the city. This mansion has a legend connected to it. It is often referred to as the 'walking house' because, as the legend goes, Atatürk believed the mansion was too close to a beautiful tree, so he ordered the mansion to walk. The house did just that, and moved 3 km down the waterfront to its current resting place (of course, with the help of rail system built underneath the building).
Termal is a beautiful area in the hills outside of Yalova (minibuses head there from the city for 2.50 TL). There are (as the name suggests) thermal hotsprings here—accompanied by hammams, a large public swimming pool and hotels galore. Many 3 and 4 star hotels have opened in Termal city, and there are a number of restaurants that cater to the tourists who flock there in the summer. Among these are a number of Arab restaurants, where you can find some of the only falafels in the province
Yalova also has a beautiful set of waterfalls--the "Falling Water Waterfall", Su Düşen Şelalesi. To get here, take a mini-bus from Yalova city center to the village Uvezpinar. Then hire a taxi to drive you the 7 km to the waterfall site. Though beautiful, it is a very rigorous hike from the village to the falls.
