Tourist Destination Thread
Posted February 2nd, 2009 - 10:41 pm by from Perth, Australia (Permalink)
I want to thank Berkay for his idea about writing up a travel destination for each article of the Turkish Newsletter.

So if you have any suggestions about what should be written about, or if you want to write something up, post it here.

Also if you have, or know someone willing to donate a photo as well, add in a link and we may use it in the newsletter.

Remember, the more we put in to this, the more everyone gets out.

Hi Folks;

First of all ,I would like to Daniel for his kind information.

When i was coming to work this morning ;i thought starting from Istanbul?Because of reason is ;Istanbul is huge city and every places has own touristic attractions.I would like to start from OLD CITY; HISTORIC PENINSULA.The place offers many differences to foreigners.. i would like to write about cultural heritage ; how to get this place (especially from airport ) ;what u should do or what should not do....It is going to be 1st step of Istanbul ;then we can write other parts of Istanbul like Taksim or Asian side.
The most important think i hesitate to write any places name to eat or any places for hang out? i really don't know what we should do about it.Because if we write any place name people can think ;we work with them ( i sometimes read some commends about it for events feed backs..) I just want to write ;just read your travel books or get correct information from correct travel portals?

So what do u expect ?

warm regards,

It would be safer for us if we did choose to not write about cafes and restuarants as it will remove the temptation to do something wrong.

Lets instead focus on things people may want to see or experience. So buidings, camiis, turbus, etc etc Good
Even interesting foods that are special in one area Good
Just lets avoid saying specific names of places

So Berkay, just choose something that you are comfortable writing about, and post it up here.
I will edit it up and put it into the newsletter as soon as I can.
