I got an student exchange for Turkey for one month in July,and if my first choice-Istanbul isn't available, I should pick one from the second group of cities:
Ankara, Bursa, Edirne, Eskisehir, Afyon, Kocaeli, Kirikkale, Konya, Samsun, Zonguldak
If the city I choose from these also isn't available, I should choose from the third group:
Adana, Aydın, Bolu, Gaziantep, Isparta, Manisa, Mersin, Tokat, Erciyes, Sivas
I want to go to a beautiful city, with beautiful sights, touristic and interesting place to visit, something like Istanbul(I know none of these are anything like Istanbul though).
