So, if you’re looking at this list, you’re probably a tourist with plans to visit Turkey. Unless you’re an observant Muslim, it sounds great. Bring your money so you can take home some souveniers and gifts (and do The Other Tour), don’t plan to drink a whole lot, look good, be friendly and have fun. Sounds good to me!

Citizens of Turkey are really friendly and kind but one thing that confuses me the most is that when I was back home in South Africa, I was told that dating was forbidden especially in public but you will find couples in parks hand in hand and kissing which is considered as sin and the fact that we cant wear revealing cloths is really ridiculous…….does anyone know where I can do my dreadlocks in Konya or Istanbul?

    You can easily be dating and loving on the streets of Istanbul. I do it all the time!!

Hey the turks are Muslims right? But Muslims don’t drink alcohol. How is it allowed for Muslims here? And Muslims celebrate eid. I’ve watched many turkish dramas but never have they ever whispered a festival. Instead they celebrate new year lavishly. What’s with the religion here actually? (No offence in any manner )

    Yeah Turks are Muslim in general just like Americans are mostly Christian. A big society that consists of full spectrum of beliefs and skills. A society that is also secular, democratic, progressive and innovative in many areas but majorly influenced by a majority of religious citizens. Understanding Turkey’s contradictions can’t be that hard considering that it’s THE Muslim civilization bordering Europe for about 1000 years.
    And other than that, after WWI, Turks were practically forced to embrace Western values and systems which pushed the country in the direction of establishing a two faceted structure both its state and social structures.
