SLOW TRAVEL GUIDE

Turkey Travel Guide for Authenticity Seekers • Local Knowledge

What to expect

Slow Travel Guide offers practical and inspirational Turkey Travel Tips. We stand for genuine advice and authenticity, and we visit each place that we write about in person. That’s why every article also contains lots and lots of photos, all our own.

Who we are

We’re a couple of Belgian expats living in Turkey. We don’t like to be in the spotlight, so this blog is all about Turkey, not about us. We’re independent travelers who appreciate the beauty of Turkey, and love to avoid the crowds.

Slow Travel Guide is a Turkey travel guide for individual travelers who are looking for inspiration to discover new places. You will get accurate information from real people who do not participate in guided tours, jeep safaris, or pirate boat trips. We are just as proud of our comprehensive Ephesus guide as we are of our article on Çomakdağ or the basket houses.

We have an interactive map of Turkey to help you find places based on your location. And we’ve built our Turkey Trip Planner to allow you to create lists of places you want to visit, and to leave reviews. If you’re looking for practical tips to help you prepare your trip, head over to our Turkey travel resources!

Why are some places still missing? Because we’re a young website, and while we’ve traveled all over Turkey, we are revisiting each place before writing about it on our website. And hey, we’re SLOW Travel Guide. If the place you’re looking for is not on the map yet, rest assured it’s planned, so stay tuned!
