It remains important to leave politics at home when you go on holiday. Go to Marmaris and enjoy a carefree holiday, enjoy the luxury and quality of the resorts, but do not get involved in politics and statements about the president. That is not what a holiday is meant for after all.
There are several unsafe areas in Turkey where it is better not to travel. Of course, the area that borders Syria is not the place to be. Also, the area at the border with Iraq is very unsafe. At this moment the travel advice is not only to avoid the border area but to avoid all provinces that border on Syria and Iraq.
Not only for Turkey but a good travel preparation is important for every destination. Be well informed about the current state of affairs in the country concerned, check what necessary and desired vaccinations you may need and make sure that your travel documents are good. Always pay attention to your personal belongings on the street, especially when you enter the city because, as at any holiday destination, scammers and pickpockets are always active.
