Turkey is a meat-lover’s paradise and when it comes to hearty meals, they take the cake. Many of the larger cities have an abundance of international restaurants, so travelers looking for a taste of home will have no trouble find an establishment to their liking. However, traditional Turkish cuisine is abundant, inexpensive and delicious. Local flavors come from a mix of surrounding cultures, including Mediterranean, Central Asian and Middle Eastern. From sit-down restaurants to street kebab stalls, there are plenty of options. The nightlife in Turkey is centered around the larger conurbations where both local and foreign beverages can be purchased. Many clubs and pubs are open until the sun comes up.
