This book introduces you to all the major coastal cities from Trabzon on the Black Sea through Istanbul to Alanya on the eastern Mediterranean coast. It gives you the geographic and historic background to help you understand what each destination is like. And it offers you all of the major highlights without becoming a compendium of hotels, restaurants and souvenir stores. This is a serious book, but written in a light manner. And it is illustrated with all of my wonderful photographs taken on my four different visits to Turkey. I hope you enjoy it.
