I fly to Sanliurfa tomorrow and want to explore the area. Not sure how many days I have, as I haven't booked a return flight and may make my way back to Istanbul slowly by train/bus combination.
I'll be on my own. I've never travelled in Turkey alone before but I speak intermediate Turkish and will obviously dress appropriately.
Just a few questions in case anyone can help.
Is it easy enough to explore Sanliurfa on my own? I'd rather not do a tour unless I can help it.
It's been recommended that I wear long skirts. I don't have many and don't find them comfortable for walking around in. Would baggy trousers or jeans be ok? How about knee length dresses with leggings?
I'm thinking of going to Harran, Nemrut and anywhere else interesting in the area. Is there anywhere else worth visiting?
I'm into walking off the beaten track and photography. Any suggestions?
Hope someone can help.. :-)
