"The beauty of the Greenback" Turkey Favorite Tip by Sharrie

Turkey General: 526 reviews and 494 photos


Fondest memory: This has to be the only country in the entire Europe where US$ is accepted everywhere. I found that such a relief!

Oh, btw, this is also the only country in the whole wide world (at least those countries I've been to) where EVERYONE is a millionaire, including beggars!!! Why? Because US$1 = 1.5 million Turkish Lira. Now, isn't that just great news for everyone? I was practically a billionaire for the entire week! & all in cash :-D

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
