"The Major Sea Port" Mersin by ogb4619

Mersin Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 13 photos

On the Southern Mediteranean Coast

This is the major commercial sea port for the southern area of Turkey which serves as the centre of distribution of most of the agricultural products from the Adana region.

Adana is famous for being the biggest city in this hugely fertile plain between two rivers emptying into the Mediteranean.

As a result, Mersin is a huge sea port and the whole town seems to be devoted to shipping and the resultant commerce around shipping.

If you need help with English speaking logistics, call Oz Demirbas Customs Consultancy Services in Mersin. They handle our shipments.

There's not much to see here either from a tourist point.

The town is about 42 km west of Adana.

Pros and Cons
