Fourth edition of Turkey, with many new features.
The fourth edition of "Rough Turkey" is now available, with many new features that once again give it the edge over the competition. This time around we've recruited Kate Clow and Terry Richardson, two of the most knowlegable folk on the local hiking scene: the result is expanded, unique coverage on trekking in the Toros mountains, and exclusive inclusion of the Lycian Way, Turkey's first GR-style trail along the stunning Turquoise Coast. David O'Byrne, resident in Istanbul, has given us the benefit of his long residence in that complicated city. In the well-loved back matter or "Contexts" section, musicologist and saz player Martin Stokes has completely overhauled the music article, and of course the unsurpassed history synopsis has been brought up to date (March 2000). And for the first time, some of the leading photographers of Turkey - including Izzet Keribar and Yusuf Tuvi - have contributed to our new picture section. These are just a few of the highlights for a guide which has won critical acclaim from a disparate group including ordinary Turks, Tourism Concern, and prestigious holiday companies such as Cachet and Tapestry. The authors and updaters of the Rough Guide between them have collectively about 35 years of experience in and around the country. So find out about Turkey as it really is at all levels - the window of a Fez Bus isn't the definitive viewpoint on the country!
