Still safe to visit Turkey?

Jump to last reply

We have a trip planned for September to Turkey. I haven't been bothered by the news over the past year regarding everything going on in the Middle East, with Syria, etc...until recently. I don't know why - but recently I've become a bit more concerned - perhaps it's due to the jet being shot down and Turkey/Syria relations being in the news more frequently. I understand most potential issues/dangers are isolated to region around the Syria border, but I can't possibly be the ONLY person out there worried about political and religious fanatics who take things to extreme and may target Westerners and other areas of Turkey in revenge or to prove their power, etc.

I understand from everything I read it is perfectly safe...but a lot of those posts are from 2011. Has anyone recently gotten back from Turkey and can you confirm you felt as safe as anywhere? Is anyone else out there like me that still excited and looking forward to going to Turkey but just a little nervous given everything going on? Or has anyone changed their plans or opted against going to Turkey?

(FYI - we are NOT going with a tour group, but are visiting a few key tourist areas - Istanbul, Izmir/coast, and Cappadocia - all of which I am aware are NOT near Syria)
