Stereotypical Turkey

Turkey has so many stereotypes about it. You might think it is only meant for going to an all inclusive resort as there are so many of those there. Or maybe you were thinking it is unsafe to go there because of the political and social unrest. I would not be surprised if you never even thought of going to the middle of Turkey to enjoy spectacular mountain views instead of warm and sunny beaches.

The truth is that even though some stereotypes about Turkey are there for a reason, the goal of your trip should be to enjoy all of them and visit places you never expected you would. Instead of booking a 5 star hotel, stay with locals in the middle of the country. Why not Cappadocia then? Unexpectedly old city built literally in the mountains. Also, rather than going on ordinary excursions you can arrange one yourself. Just pack a backpack and start hiking around as there are so many things to see and everything is perfectly convenient for the tourists. This is why Turkey actually is a tourist destination.

Try googling Cappadocia. Hot air balloons are one of the most popular things to do there. But is it a bad stereotype?

If you still want to have a vacay on the seashore, try the Lycian Way. Trail is located close to Antalya and Kemer, some of the most popular cities for tourism. Just walk along the perfectly designed trail and see all the best that Turkey has to offer, including the stereotypes about friendly and hospitable people, interesting old culture and other good.

You cannot have an opinion about the Turkish eyes without hearing their story from a local in Turkey itself.

Also, I hope you haven’t forgotten that we are always here to help. Just download TrailSmart to you phone or tablet and read all about the trail you want to take. The best feature about it is that you can modify it for your needs – skip a section, take an off-trail road, walk it beginning to end or the other way around. Oh, and it is FREE.
