The most exciting places in Turkey to visit

Tortum Waterfall

One of Turkey’s most spectacular waterfalls and also the largest waterfall. However, these days there is only a surplus of water between the months of May and June. The waterfall is almost dry during the other months.

Amasya

Nestled within the narrow valley on the Yesilirmak River (and surrounded by mountains), it’s a pretty unique and historic city that’s easy to visit if you’re already in the area. Once you’re here, make sure to explore the historic Ottoman-style houses, see Amasya Castle and spot the Kral Kaya Tombs.

Öludeniz

Famous for skydiving, beaches, and incredible scenery. Öludeniz is a paradise for vacationers looking for beautiful beaches, tranquility and charming villages.

Delicious dishes to try in Turkey

Mezze

Menemen is a traditional Turkish dish made with eggs, onions, tomatoes, green peppers, and spices. It’s usually cooked in olive or sunflower oil and eaten with bread.

Lahmacun

Lahmacun may look like pizza from afar, but it’s no pizza. Lahmacun consists of thinly-rolled dough with a layer of minced meat, minced vegetables (tomato and onion), and a slew of herbs such as cayenne pepper and cumin.

Kebab

Kebap, the cornerstone of modern Turkish cuisine, simply means “charcoal-grilled” and includes dishes as disparate as kestane kebap — roasted chestnuts sold in paper bags by street vendors on winter days.

The most useful tips for travelers to Turkey

Know a Little Turkish

Outside of the major cities, not many people speak English in Turkey. But the good news is, Turkish isn’t hard to learn—the letters are similar to the Roman alphabet and words are said as they are spelled.

Money matters and currency exchange

The currency in Turkey is the Turkish lira, TL. Once you land in Turkey you can exchange your money at one of the currency exchange booths at the airport.

Is Turkey safe?

Turkey is one of the safest countries in the world with Interpol ranking it as one of the safest holiday destination in Europe. You will find the police helpful and friendly and in many of the tourist resorts there are special tourism police who speak different languages.
