Why people love to travel to Turkey?
Read Susie's interview;
Tell us abit about yourself..?
I'm Susie, a 28-year-old girl from Denmark. I'm a trained beauty therapist, make-up artist and hairdresser. I'm currently working as a beauty therapist at a new Spa in Copenhagen. My interests are family and friends, music, going to concerts, going to the cinema or watching movies at home, shopping and travelling.
What made you first decide to visit Turkey?
My sister. She has been to Turkey a few times before, and she went to Kusadasi with a friend 2 years ago and they wanted to go there again. So my friend and I went along with them.
Which cities have you visited in Turkey?
I have only been to Kusadasi, so far.
Would you like to visit again? If yes - What is it about Turkey that you love?
Yes, All 4 of us is going to Kusadasi for 2 weeks in June. What I like about Turkey is the amazing food, the weather, the people, and the vibe, which changes whether it's night or day. Almost everything, there isn't just one thing I can point out.
Did you feel safe in Turkey?
I definitely feel safe in Turkey. It didn't matter if it was 2 in the day or 5 in the night, I never felt unsafe. I actually think there is more “trouble” going on in Copenhagen in a regular Saturday night!
How were the Turkish people?
The Turkish people were nice and friendly. The only ones who annoyed us, were the people working at restaurants and bars, trying to get you in to their place, and didn't understand a NO. But I guess it just their job.
Do you have any suggestions for new visitors to Turkey? Travel - tour tips? Can you recommend any specific places or advice?
The first thing you have to do is go to a hamam (Turkish bath). You will have the nicest tan and the smoothest body after that.
Then you also have to take a one-day boat trip, where you can lay on deck and sunbath, you can swim in the ocean (stopping at 3 different coves) and get your lunch on board (they actually cook on board!). Just remember to grab an SPF 30, if it's one of the first days of your holiday or the day after a Hamam!
A restaurant I can recommend is "Café Seyhan" in the old town, just near the roundabout and Tansas. They make the best Yoghurt Kebab I have ever tasted.
For a good night out, for all people all ages, I recommend Golden oldies. Good fun, very friendly staff, good music and a good old sing-along.
If you like having a few drinks in you hotel room before going out, it's not always cheaper to buy alcohol in Turkey. Coming from Denmark it's cheaper buying it tax-free at the airport.
You definitely have to try the Turkish food and don't be afraid to try anything new, anything you might never have tried before. I know I will be more adventures when it comes to food, next time around. And if you have the time, go out to see as many sights as possible. Next time we are definitely going on a horse safari, going to see Ephesus and on a one-day trip to Samos (Greek Island).
