Turkey Local Customs: 407 reviews and 378 photos

Hospitality is a tradition in Turkey.Most of them invite you for tea, coffee, or their flat for dinner...first what they want is to know you better, they appreciate u guys coming from far away and visiting our country, plus turkish people can't travel alot..İf u are invited to a turkish familt house remove your shoes before entering home,beacuse of being clean is one of the condition of Islam.And go with an empty stomach,turkish womans know how to cook delicious. don't reject something they will be desapointed. .
P.S don't let the dodgy carpet salesman make u think wrong about Turkish Hospitality.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
