I sent some packages to Turkey several times in the past (with registered posts).
None of them got lost and arrived in 4- 5 days.
What are you trying to do here? eh?
Trying to look for a reason to criticize Turkey? eh?

According to my friends who have lived in Turkey for over 10 years as expatriates, it took very long time to receive mail or parcels in the past. But now it is very much improved. I have sent small packages by speedpost from Hong Kong and it took only 2-3 working days to get to Istanbul. Yet I have not tried sending anything by surface mail or normal airmail. I would guess it should take at least one week by airmail. For remote areas or villages it seems normal to take longer time though.

We send books to Istanbul and it took two months. Than we send something to Antalya and it was there within a week.

My be, you did misspell the address for istanbul!!
When it is the case, PTT, go and check every single street and ask the residents one by one if they knew the person!!
Of course it takes time..

Yes it just depends sometimes it can take about 2 weeks other times in my case it has taken about 6 or 7 days.All the mail i have sent to Ankara has been delivered! Have faith they are doing their best,fingers crossed it will get there eventually.

Time really depends on each and single individual who has anything to do with your mail. If they take too many tea breaks it may take an extra week

1) Umarım geç kalmadım, bu mektup tam yaş gününde eline ulaşır.

2) Nice mutlu yıllara

3) Singapur´dan sevgilerle, (name) xxx

4) Yes, you are right : "(name) xxx için büyük bir sürpriz" .. but sometimes saying "küçük"(little/small) instead of "büyük" may make better sense ..

When we were in Turkey, we sent postcards from Göreme to Estonia and Finland. We were long home before the cards came: a bit damaged but still got here, one of them more than 2  and the other more than 3 weeks later. According to the stamps it had taken a week for them even to start moving from Göreme

Now i sent a small package to Göreme. It reached Istanbul in 9 days and hasn´t moved since... maybe it can be a Christmas present instead of birthday present

 

Update: the package was delivered. It took 2 weeks and 1 day - so, pretty good, i think
