    My friend from Poland went there alone and she felt safe. The only complaint I heard from her was the haggling she received from the markets and shops. Do post your experience in Travel Pod or Word Press as I'd like to know of your take. I'm planning to visit 7/4 to 7/14 then to Italy :). Have fun! almost 6 years ago

    As with any city and any country, you need to be aware of your surroundings. Turkey has its good and bad side - I wouldnt want to be wandering around on my own in the middle of Ankara or Istanbul in the dead of night, but then I wouldnt do that in London, New York, Paris or my local town either.

    I have always found that by being a bit respectful, covering up slightly, learning to ignore a lot of people calling out to you etc etc you can get by just fine in Turkey. Its a great country and certainly in the smaller towns and villages I have always found it very easy and safe.

    A few words of Turkish would be great, especially if you are the very east of Turkey (or the very north for that matter).

    There are many other backpackers and solo travellers. Just be a tad careful and enjoy. almost 6 years ago

    Not very smart, less people speak English you should know. Be extra careful in istanbul especially in the istiklal street. The southern coastal cities like bodrum,antalya, alanya are much more safer than big cities almost 6 years ago
