I spent 40 days travelling around Turkey during July and August 2003. It was a travell from the east to the west, not only geographicaly but also culturaly.
I visited: Trabzon, Erzurum, Dogubayazit, Van, Diyarbakir, Mardin, Sanliurfa, Nemrut Dagi, Göreme, Konya, Antalya, Kas, Pamukkale, Selcuk, Bergama and Istanbul.
My tips will come in the same order as I travelled. Meaning that tips from Trabzon and around comes first and tips from Istanbul comes last.
Summer 2004 i went to Turkey again. The places I visited this time was:
Istanbul, Amasra, Safranbolu, Ankara, Hattusas, Amasya, Sivas, Divrigi, Erzurum, Kars, Ani, Dogubayazit, Van, Diyarbakir, Hasankeyf, Antakya, Silifke, Anamur, Antalya, Datca, Bodrum, Izmir, Behramkale (Assos), Bursa and finally Istanbul again.
Tips of places I visited during this trip (but not last time) I will put under general tips.
