Why people love to travel to Turkey?
Read Mark's interview;
Tell us abit about yourself..?
Well uhm , my name is Mark. I am 23 and from the always tropical Amsterdam. I love to travel, have been travelling half the world and 1 of the countries i have been a few times to is Turkey.
What made you first decide to visit Turkey?
I was kidnapped..i had no choice ..no kidding...At time i didnt like the idea of going to spain or another common country. So I and a friend of mine decided to go to turkey because we heard that the nightlife was nice and that the weather was great!.
Which cities have you visited in Turkey?
I have been to Antalya and Bodrum/Gumbet 2 times. 2 different places...bodrum/gumbet lives mainly from turism so everything there is based on the tourism business. Antalya is more of a city which i prefer although the nightlife is more seperated.
Would you like to visit again? If yes - What is it about Turkey that you love?
Well i think i will visit Antalya again but not Bodrum. I like parties but there has to be more...the beaches were a bit disappointing. I like to hangout more with the locals then the tourists but with locals i mean real locals not the people who work in the tourist industry.
I want to go to cities as Istanbul and Izmir because i am curious of how the big city life would be and maybe the lagoons which are there..only need to find a nice girl to join me in that first haha.
Did you feel safe in Turkey?
Yes as a guy i felt safe in turkey, but i truly feel that its less safe for girls.
How were the Turkish people?
I liked the people, especially the people who worked hard to get around like the people in the hotels restaurants...but i didnt like a lot of the people who worked in the "entertaining" sector. Witnessed too much that they worked for more than just the benifits of entertaining..it pinched me in the eye to see the difference in the treating of people.
Do you have any suggestions for new visitors to Turkey? Travel - tour tips? Can you recommend any specific places or advice?
Well I would advice Antalya! its a great city...especially if you want a little bit more then just the beach. I have seen about the lagoons..i have heard about Cesme and about the big cities so i would advice you all to see those places.
