Balikesir Ili Travel Guide: 144 reviews and 637 photos

Balikesir is a province in midwestern Turkey, having coastlines on both the Sea of Marmara and the Aegean.
We came to Balikesir Province by bus on our ring-way around Turkey from Izmir Province while going to Canakkale Province. It is on the Northern Aegean coast of Turkey, with Istanbul to the north and Izmir to the south.

Turkey is divided into 81 provinces, called il in Turkish.
I?ve been to 10 Turkish provinces:
Istanbul Ili
Ankara Ili
Corum Ili
Nevsehir Ili
Konya Ili
Denizli Ili
Izmir Ili
Aydin Ili
Balikesir Ili
Canakkale Ili

and passed through by transit 8 provinces:
Kocaeli, Sakarya, Bolu, Kirikkale, Kirsehir, Aksaray, Afyon, Tekirdag.
In total I saw 18 provinces out of 81!
