    Great information, Carrie. Turkey is definitely on our Travel bucket list and I loved all of your valuable tips on traveling on a budget. Those spices looks amazing!

    Useful info. Turkey is on our list for our upcoming RTW- I visited once in 2007 but only for a couple days to Kusadasi. Looking forward to exploring other areas of the country.

    Another good budget tip for Turkey is to get out of Istanbul as soon as you can!! It’s by far the dearest city in the country. We found places like Ankara, Trabzon and Adana to be much cheaper and nicer! Even better they weren’t full of tourists. Safe travels. Jonny

    I agree with Jonny, Istanbul is quiet expansive and to truly enjoy it and know it one should spend a bit. But Turkey is so divers and big that you will surly find places to save up :)
