choose the site housing, or the region is important and you should read it and you know precisely is the place of your convenience, was located a tourist area, or near a commercial center, or one of the shrines . such places are usually at higher prices than others. as well as the city or village may affect so much in price, for example , is the hotel prices in the Black Sea regions trabzon city, and south - eastern Turkey mermarin city and Antalya, high for hotels in other places, with the knowledge that the service and welfare by approximately one level, but the difference great demand, especially the Turks and Europeans to demand from others to the presence of coast they want too much, making it a high price.
*Organize travel bags *
My advice to repeat them about the bags try dear tourist reduce your cargo of bags only thus be lightly easy to navigate, and avoid the traditional purchase, additional the weight gives you trouble, has amounts by airlines , a trip to go or return.
* food in Turkey *
food and drink in Turkey is very appropriate and I usually cost me a full meal of 25 pounds I have already organize group tours so that the cost of a person 25 pounds only, so you must get away from the tourist restaurants and a very popular tourist high, the value of the rent is too high, and the restaurant is compensated by providing lists of food high prices, and instead look for local Turkish restaurants and the most in every corner can be found, offering traditional Turkish dishes, including varieties of meat and vegetables and various authorities, and reasonable prices. Turkey is also famous for its Bokladtha People 's available in all the cities, which is characterized by Ascetically price tag, and it tastes delicious, and most famous of these dishes, Iskander kebab, meat dough and meatballs, and "Eldonar" or self - styled Turkish Bachaorma, and kebabs of various kinds.

* the tep and tax free *
do not pay "tip" for motorists taxis or buses, a tep usually offers hotel staff once at the end of the residence, as well as in restaurants, and does not usually pay tep for drinks only, which at the request of foods, and tipping is usually 10% of the amount you paid, it also depends on how satisfied service, and should always check the bill , there may be manipulation in terms of do you know ... while the value added retrieval and self - styled tax , a value added of Turkish goods you can restore them in case you travel must be extracted private papers of the store where you bought and the lowest value for the extraction of paper 100 tax lire .. and possible relive 4% of the value of what you bought at the airport and there at the counter ticketing and baggage working to extract the card boarding and then do not pertain bags containing goods tax , but there is a counter and another written by the Tax a Free. * provide government buses * there are those who overlook the availability of buses government and linking several Turkish cities, offering high - quality service, and low price, with comfortable seats, a television screen, with some foods and drinks, and there are plants such as the Topkapi her station in Istanbul.
