The Rough Guide to Turkey - Edition 6
The Rough Guide to Turkey - Edition 6

1.0 out of 5 stars tired and outdated, 11 July 2010
Bought this after my first visit to Turkey 21 years ago; though sneery and cynical it was useful. Married the man, came to live here 9 years ago. Bought the new edition last year. The reviews for the holiday town, on the outskirts of which I live, are still the same, word for word! Current reviews of food, hotels etc are similarly 20 years of date.
The pace of change here is enormous, please try to imagine a review which hasn't changed in 20 years and multiply it's irrelevance by 3. Used Rough guides for many years and many countries, so disappointed by this charade of a current guide.
