Currency: Turkish lira (in TL5, TL20, TL50, TL100, TL200 notes).
Cuisine: Turkey is famous for its mezze. Pick from patlıcan salatası (aubergine mash), semizotu (purslane weed, usually in yoghurt), mücver (courgette croquettes), dolma (stuffed vegetables) and so much more.
Tipping etiquette: Expect to tip about 10%-15% on top of bills.
Transport: Virtually the whole country is well covered by public transport. Be wary when driving; Turkish roads have a bit of a reputation.
WHEN TO GO
The pleasantly warm weather throughout spring and autumn is perfect for city sightseeing, or maybe horse riding across to geographical and historical wonders. Then as the heat rises from May to September, enjoy the beaches and turquoise seas of Turkey’s Mediterranean and Aegean coasts. Even during winter, Turkey is still pleasantly warm – when the months from October to early November are called pastırma yazı – or Indian summer.
Blue is traditionally Turkey’s most popular colour. You see it everywhere, especially in ‘Evil Eye’ pendants that are worn to ward off bad luck.
