Ruled this land this long history has turned turkey into an extremely mysterious country with many rules and principles that defy logic and are not found anywhere else in the world join me in the next few minutes to explore the prohibitions and peculiarities that exist in this country number 15 prohibition on direct

Communication with single women in public places no matter how much you like a Turkish girl it is not allowed to approach her and start a conversation right on the street even if you know her previously Turks highly value discretion and respect towards women they believe that directly talking to Turkish women

Especially young or single ones in public places is an indecent act and may lead to misunderstandings in Turkish culture there is a level of respect between genders especially in public situ typically Turkish men will avoid direct communication with unfamiliar or unre Rel ated women in situations like public transportation social events or other

Public places this attitude reflects the respect and protection of the honor of women in Turkish Society also signifies the acceptance and respect for the country’s traditional and cultural values if a girl is seen talking to a man on the street she may be judged as being too casual and it can be

Challenging for her to get married in the future because no Turkish man wants to marry a woman who appears casual number 14 prohibition onbody language in communication do you often give the okay sign to your friends if that’s your habit you should correct it immediately before going to Turkey as it might lead

To a disaster while in other countries the okay sign represents agreement or approval in Turkey it is considered an offensive gesture therefore you should absolutely avoid making the oak sign in Turkey to prevent unnecessary trouble in Turkey if you want to say yes or agree with someone you should nod your head

Once if you want to say no or disagree you should raise your chin frown and slightly press your tongue against the roof of your mouth also pointing at someone while talking is considered impolite for those who have strong self-respect and a firm belief in spirituality offending them can have significant

Consequences number 13 prohibition on buying Stones antiques do not buy any stones or fossils when vacationing in Turkey as they’re considered cultural artifacts and exporting them is illegal all antiques especially those with historical or cultural significance fall under the same category in owning buying and especially exporting them is

Unlawful the penalties for this action can include up to 12 years in prison or a substantial fine in Turkey markets are among the favorite places for international tourists due to the DI diverse range of items especially in decorative item markets many of these items are souvenirs or replica of

Antiques but some are genuine ancient AR some items may be bought and sold within turkey but taking these items out of the country is il what makes it complicated is that in Turkey the definition of antique items not only considers their age and historical significance but also their Rarity therefore distinguishing

Between allowed and prohibited items can be challenging for international tourists while cases of confusion are rare they do happen Travelers should be cautious When shopping in Turkey to avoid legal consequences before deciding to purchase a decorative or souveni item it is advisable to ask the seller for legal documentation authenticating that

The item is only for display or souveni purposes in addition to antique related issues tearing Bank notes can be considered offensive and can lead to imprisonment for 6 months to 3 years tourists also need permission to take photos near Military facilities in the country number 12 ban on Twitter if you

Are traveling to Turkey be cautious about your Twitter account as there is a possibility that you will not have access until you leave the country this is because following the earthquake disaster in Turkey access to Twitter for users in the country was blocked by the government many Twitter users in the

Country Tre couldn’t post tweets about the earthquake that occurred in February 2023 this was considered a foolish reaction by the Turkish government the disaster that claimed over 177,000 lives they aimed to block any information from the public most of which was about the shortcomings in the government’s rescue

Efforts before this incident turkey had also restricted Twitter advertising according to turkeyy Social Media law social media companies without a local representative would face a series of fines the law allows authorities to remove content from platforms instead of blocking access as done previously using Twitter in Turkey poses a challenge and

It is advisable to check your account regularly when visiting the country number 11 taxes must have a logo I should have brought this rule to the Forefront because it is crucial and can affect you right from the moment you set foot in the country that is the matter

Of choosing the right taxi for travelers using taxes is quite common but in Turkey it’s important not to choose taxes without logos the reason is that some taxi drivers in Turkey often deceive tourists by taking longer routes or using faulty meters to charge additional fees therefore one thing you

Should never do in Turkey is to take a taxi without a logo because you cannot determine which taxi brand it belongs to it’s best to choose taxis with logos on the door to use a taxi service with accurate Fair meters moreover unchecked taxis could belong to individuals with malicious intent surveillance by Turkish

Police is relatively loose so you must take measures to protect yourself rather than expect timely assistance from them number 10 prohibition on wasting food immersing yourself in local Cuisine is one of the most authentic ways to experience a culture Turkish cuisine is celebrated worldwide but don’t forget to

Adhere to basic table manace for instance when using toothpicks wandle them discreetly in Turkey they are called kurur and using them without any finesse can be considered impolite most importantly you must eat everything on your plate it would be considered disrespectful if you leave food on the

Plate when dining with a Turkish family leaving anything behind indicates that you don’t like what they provided this is a sign of Maximum respect and the proper behavior to complete everything on your plate people here highly respect food considering it a gift from the Divine and wasting it is never

People the use of last names is not as common as in some other country Ries instead people in Turkey are often referred to by their first name accompanied by their father’s name for example a person might be called Ali son of Meed where Ali is the personal name

Mem is the name of his father this creates a distinctive calling system and reflects the importance of family in Turkish culture certainly after the government regulation in communication with foreigners or in official document Turks had to use the last name system similar to European countries but in every everyday communication the naming

System based on the father’s name is still more common so don’t be surprised if you see a Turkish person having at least two different names it’s a quirky and interesting characteristic number seven no revealing clothing allowed we all know that belly dancing requires extremely sensual attire at least revealing the waist and
