We're planning to travel for two weeks in Turkey.

We don't have much idea how to plan except that we wish to travel anticlock wise from Istanbul and come back there after two weeks. We just want to visit cooler places later.

Is travelling to Eastern Turkey safe? What are the places of interests? Where we can go in North (Black sea coast)?

Could someone please help me in chalking out an itenary?

Thanks for all the help.

Hi Ghoshps;
Turkey nis safe in general. Depending on your wishes and interests an itinerary can be gathered based on arriving istanbul couple of days, Cappadocia, Izmir and Ephesus, Bodrum maybe few days cruise and drive down to Kas kalkan and olympos, fly back Istanbul before a day leaving.........If you wish to add Blacksea flying to Trabzon is an idea after istanbul. Where in the east you would like to go?
I am also a travel agent and happy to sort your itinerary out if you wish so.

Happy travelling

Turkey must be such a beautiful place to stay for a summer vacation!

I will try and save as much money as I can to go to Istanbul soon.

Hi Ghoshps;

I think spending a part of journey at black sea coast is a great idea. Firt of all you should decide which paty of black sea, west side or east side you want to visit. If you want to see east part of black sea (bs) you can visit trabzon, artvin, ordu, giresun. In west part of bs you can see Bolu (especilly for natural beauty), Amasra ( samll town of Bartın city), Safranbolu (traditional turkish houses and its Turkish delight are famous) and may be sinop.

About your second question, Yes, Eastern Turkey is safe. You may spend a couple of days in Erzincan(a good idea especially if you are a nature loving sport fan like trekking, water skiing, rafting, etc As far as I know 11 sports like these can be done there) Tulum cheese and cupper handcraft, leblebi are famous.

ıf you have any other questions , feel confortable to ask

Have a nice journey
