Travel with Respect

Although Turks are very tolerant and friendly; expressions and attitudes insulting, defaming or making light of Mustafa Kemal, the Turkish flag, the Turkish customs and traditions, and the Turkish Republic are considered offensive.Turkey is a mostly Muslim country, though secular, and although you will see varying degrees of Islamic practice in Turkey, it is rude to insult or mock some of its traditions. In regard to the Call to Prayer, which is read 5 times a day from the speakers of the numerous mosques throughout Turkey. Do not mock or mimick the recordings, as Turks are extremely proud and sensitive of their heritage and culture, and will be very offended.Certain gestures, common in the western world, are considered rude expressions in this culture. People tend to be tolerant if they can see you are a foreigner. They know you are probably doing it unconsciously, but if you take the time to keep these in mind, you won't have any misunderstandings. Sticking your thumb up is rude; you may use your forefinger instead (as if saying 'Number one!'). Avoid clicking your tongue. Some people do this unconsciously at the beginning of a sentence. It is a gesture of dismissal. If you are invited into a Turkish house, remember to put off your shoes just outside or immediately inside the door. Try not talking about the Armenian Genocide! The Turkish people and government still deny it to this day.
