Firstly I would like to say what a great and informative site this place is, it is really helpful!
My brother and I are planning a trip in May around Turkey. We will spend three days in Istanbul and then travel to Mardin for a further two days. Though we are wondering whether it is safe? Considering it is close proximity to the Syrian border, we really do not know.
We then plan to travel to Diyarbakir for one night to take an early flight to Antalya and then onto Fethiye for a few days. After Fethiye, we will travel to Izmir and Canakkale to take a tour of Gallipoli before heading to Istanbul for the flight home.
Please critic this trip as much as possible as we would love to here your opinions, thank you!
