Is Tourism Safe in Turkey? How to Be Safe?

Is Turkey Safe to Visit?

Turkey is relatively safe to visit, but you do need to keep your wits about you when you go. Usually, tourists don't have to deal with too much violent crime, especially in more popular tourist areas, but you might run into pickpocketers.

Political Situation

Turkey is a presidential representative democracy and a constitutional republic within a pluriform multi-party system, in which the president (the head of state and head of government), parliament, and judiciary share powers reserved to the national government.

Crime

Statistically, you are 7-9 times safer in Turkey over the US. Compared to Turkey, violent crime is 78% worse in the US, with total crimes (per 1000 people) being 9X worse in the US than in Turkey.

Safest Places in Turkey

Turkey's well-maintained roads, low crime rate and good health care make it a safe and relatively easy country to explore. However, it's important to be aware of potential environmental hazards in Turkey and nearby areas, such as forest fires and intense sun in the summertime.

Antalya

In general, Antalya is safe for travellers, as locals are very welcoming and eager to show foreigners their country. There are still some things to be aware of, however, just like when travelling anywhere else in the world.
