I would like to learn about Sanliurfa in the southeast of Turkey. My friend made a short visit there two months ago and I want to find out more about the city, but there is not much information over the net. Perhaps someone here knows more or have been there and could tell me how it is.

 

Any information is very appreciated!!

Thank you very much! Big smile

If there is anyone that visited this city or such, it would be super to hear their story!

Im not sure why I am so intrestead in Sanliurfa, perhaps because my friend talked about it with such warmth. Does anyone know if there´s many hotels and tourists there?

I went in May last year. It´s a fabulous,atmospheric and one of our favourite places in Turkey. The history embraces many different faiths and is a melting pot-pilgrims coming from all over the world. I felt a great sense of unity with other people there. One of the things you notice is the predominance of lilac headscarves worn by both women and men. From there you can go to Harran famous for its old ´bee-hive´ houses.

There are loads of hotels and hostels and eating out in restaurants was cheaper than anywhere else we had come across. We stayed at the Hotel Bakay (50 TL).

 In 2 of my essays I wrote about Urfa. They´re called ´Summer 2006´ and ´Exploring Turkey part 2´. Both are in the essay section of this site.
