Hi all,

I'm going to Kas in Turkey for a week and was wondering whether anyone has been there before? If so I'd be very grateful for any recommendations for things to do, good places to eat/drink, etc.

Having never been to Turkey before, I have a few questions:

1) How expensive is it out there? I've heard that it's good to barter to get good prices?

2) Will there be many mosquitoes in September?

3) What are the locals like? Do they speak English in general?

4) Is it safe? (crime, etc)

Any information you could give me would be much appreciated!

Many thanks in advance :)

I have been to Turkey. Unfornutally Kas was not one of the cities I visited but I can answer more general questions.

1) Turkey is cheaper compare to EU and US
2) Depends on the location. Since I never been in Kas, I don't know :(
3) Most of the young generation do know English. That might be enough to communicate.
4) Again. Depends on the city you are in. However, It's mostly safe country, unlike the news. Just keep important stuff with you like whenever you go to another country. I guess that will be enough.

my suggestions and observations :
- get a dictionary or an app,
- people are as polite as they are hospitable
- try amazing food over there and breakfast. you will be amazed

Thank you very much for replying and for the advice. Will definitely learn some basic phrases to use whilst out there :)
