Although Turkey is situated in a geographical location where climatic conditions are quite temperate, the diverse nature of the landscape, and the existence in particular of the mountains that run parallel to the coasts, result in significant differences in climatic conditions from one region to the other. While the coastal regions enjoy milder climates, the inland Anatolia plateau experiences hot summers and cold winters with limited rainfall.

Because of Turkey’s geographical conditions, one can not speak about a general overall climate.

In Istanbul and around the sea of Marmara (Marmara region) the climate is moderate (winter 4 deg.C and summer 27 deg.C); in winter the temperature can drop below zero.

In Western Anatolia (Aegean region) there is a mild Mediterranean climate with average temperatures of 9 deg.C in winter and 29 deg.C in summer. On the southern coast of Anatolia (Mediterranean region) the same climate can be observed wıth longer summer season and higher summer peak temperatures which may rise up to 36oC, but will not drop below 10oC in the winter.

The climate of the Anatolian Plateau (Central Anatolian region) is a steppe climate (there is a great temperature difference between day and night). Rainfall is low and there is more snow. The average temperature is 23 deg.C in summer and -2 deg.C in winter.

The climate in the Black Sea area (Black Sea region) is wet, warm and humid (summer 23 deg.C, winter 7 deg.C).

In Eastern Anatolia and South-Eastern Anatolia there is a long hard winter, where year after year snow lies on the ground from November until the end of April (the average temperature in winter is -13 deg.C and in summer 17 deg.C).

Communication with Home

When you come to Turkey you’ll notice that you need a mobile phone to be able to reach your family and friends, to reach the host

family when you`re out and about with the kids or to be reached by them when they need to contact you and also you can easily text your friends in Turkey or talk with them when you plan to meet up.

Note that you can not use a Turkish SIM card with the phone that you bring from home. This is against illegal trade of phones to Turkey without paying the import taxes. However when you arrive at the airport in Turkey you can declare your phone at the custom office, fill out some forms, show your passport and pay a certain amount of tax to be able to use your own phone in Turkey.


Traveling in Turkey

It`s fairly cheap to travel within Turkey by bus or by plane. Because of the number of flights and the number of destinations have increased in the recent years, it`s possible to find good deals on airfares just a little bit more expensive than the bus trips.

The advantage of traveling by bus is that many bus companies have shuttles that pick you up from the main bus terminal of each city and drop you off at the city center or at many touristic spots out of the city.  Bus companies also have free pick up shuttles that pick you up from various spots in the city to the bus terminal or to the main pick up points of the bus. Therefore it may be cheaper and easy to reach the destination when you don`t want to pay for the extra travel expenses. Likewise many small hostels also offer free pick up service from the bus terminal.

It`s also possible to buy your inter-city bus ticket online by credit card.
