Hospitality in Turkey

The mentality of Turkish hospitality is whatever religion you are from, whichever country you come from, whatever language you speak, you are God's Guest.

Traditional Turkish Hospitality

Visitors to Turkey are often pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the Turkish people, who will go out of their way to assist and happily spend time chatting.

Hospitality is a cornerstone of Turkish culture, and Turkish people believe that visitors should be treated as Guests sent by God. This attitude has survived to the 21st century and does not appear to have been diminished by mass tourism. In fact, quite the reverse, most Turks welcome the opportunity to meet foreign visitors, learn about different cultures and practice their language skills.

It is usual for Turkish people even the men to greet each other by kissing on both cheeks. As a tradition, Turkish people treat their national flag as sacred. Therefore, one should avoid insulting or showing disrespect to the Turkish flag.

Experience that how Turkish people friendly and lovely as well as the great history in Turkey.

Family Relations

Family relations are very nice within Turkish people. They respect their older and support each other in every way.

Parents do support their children financially until they get married. When the child get married the financial support may continue but it is expected that the new family could earn enough and manage their livings.

Children do care very much about their older. They take care of their older and support them when they get old or sick both financially and mentally.

This relation is a kind of boomerang, older support children when they are young, children support their elder when they are old.
