1. What is the best time?
The best time to travel to Turkey It is spring and autumn, when the weather is more pleasant and you avoid the hottest and coldest months. Keep in mind that in July and August, temperatures can exceed 40 degrees, although if your trip includes the beaches of the Mediterranean coast, it can also be a good time.
In case you can only travel in summer, we suggest you concentrate all visits during the first hours of the day, when the temperatures are still pleasant.
After spending an unstable time with demonstrations, coup attempts and terrorist attacks, Turkey has once again achieved high tourism fees and conveys a sense of security. It must be taken into account that tourism is one of the great sources of income in the country and the government dedicates many resources and efforts to preserve the safety of tourists.
Whenever we talk about security, we must bear in mind that zero risk when traveling to Turkey or any country in the world does not exist, and normally this sense of insecurity is given by specific news from the media, which does not reflect the general situation of the country .
Common crime is not very common against tourists because of the high penalties that it entails, although it is necessary to watch with small scams, especially in taxis and backpack, purse and belongings in the most crowded markets or places.
In the end, we believe that using common sense and following a route through the most tourist places in the country, without logging into dangerous areas such as the borders with Syria or Iraq, is the key to making a trip to Turkey safe.
