I'll make a list of useful web pages. Others might add links as well but please include a short description.

1. Here is the main page of the official web site of the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism:

http://www.turizm.gov.tr/EN/

When scrolling down there is a "where are you traveling from" section where you can choose your country for specific visa informations and such. In general it is good website.

2. Best online Turkia map. It works really good.
http://www.us.map24.com/
(Thanks to Bod, our veteran member, for this link)

3. German website about Hotel Ratings given holiday makers:
I couldn't find any turstful English source.
http://www.hotelbewertungen.net/1024/land,lid__4,kontinent__Europa,land__Tuerkei.html

4. Again a German website. There are pictures taken by holiday makers for almost every place tourists can stay.
