Went to several cities, enjoyed the ancient ruins and museums, and swam in the Mediterranean Sea. Had no idea how beautiful Turkey was. I suggest to everyone to add Turkey to your list of places to go. August and September though were still very hot and humid which was hard for me though I tolerated it and had a great time.
I spent the whole of September in Turkey and only spent £500 (not including flights). I went to ten different places and used buses for transportation. I booked all bus tickets in advance on 12Go and it was really easy and accessible to navigate. Hostels on average were around £10 a night but some places (Olympos and Cappadocia) cost a bit more. Food and activities were really cheap though.
I loved ballooning in Cappadocia - it’s expensive but the best money I spent. I didn't like Pamukkale, it was over run with tourists and very dirty. We did a 3 day boat trip from Fethiye which was amazing. I found Istanbul interesting but very overwhelming, I found 1 day there was plenty enough. We were told not to drink the water, but the food was very tasty!
I spent two months solo in Turkey and absolutely loved it. Rented a car for five weeks and drove from Istanbul to Alanya. Stopped at so many amazing places. Looking to return soon. Enjoyed many a glass of tea with the locals.
Everyone told me I was crazy for wanting to visit Turkey but it's been one of my favourite places I've been. Seriously overlooked and deemed as dangerous "especially for a young woman". The people are friendly and welcoming, the food is amazing, the beaches are spectacular. A must visit.
I loved Turkey. I walked around solo. Went to the rooftop restaurants/bars at night solo. I wasn’t modestly dressed by Muslim standards but I was by American standards. I was approached by men, but I wasn’t approached in a creepy or harassing manner. I’ve been harassed far worse in America. I split my stay up between hostels and hotels and felt safe at each place. I stayed in Istanbul & Cappadocia. The people were friendly and helpful.
I love Turkey. Lovely country, very helpful people, but not many speak English. I felt safe myself. It is a fascinating country, full of history and beauty. I traveled with family both times.
I travelled solo in Turkey and had an amazing time. I would say that Turkey was one of the places I felt more vulnerable as a single female traveller and had men approach me and try and get me to come to their houses more than once. I was able to laugh it off and walk away. Apart from that I absolutely loved it. Turkey was such a beautiful, amazing place to go.
I spent a few days in Turkey by myself and I loved it! It was cheap, people were friendly, food was amazing and I honestly didn’t feel unsafe. Of course I looked it up where is not suggested to go and didn’t walk around in mini skirt during the night but in general I felt safe.
I loved travelling solo in Turkiye and highly recommend it. No downside. I loved Istanbul and spent several days there staying in the Sultanahmet neighbourhood which was perfect. I went from Istanbul to Ayvalik, on to Selcuk (and walked to Ephesus), and finally Bodrum from where I sailed to Greece.
