People travelling to TRNC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) have to be aware that there has been some international apathy towards the country since 1974, when there was a period of unrest between the greek south and the turkish northern parts of the island. This has been well written about elsewhere and I don't intend to add to the confusion!
As a visitor or holidaymaker, be assured all is well now, and, so long as you adopt the right attitude from the start, you WILL have a great visit.
The general feel is that the place is about thirty years behind mainstream holiday destinations in sophistication, appearance, and refinement. All the better, that adds to the charm. The people are delighted to see visitors, and are more interested in your friendship than your cash. It is a relatively poor country in need of support via tourism, and deserves much respect. As with anywhere, you get what you pay for, but more value here that anywhere else!
