This Turkey Trip Planner is a free tool offered by Slow Travel Guide.
What can you do with it?
You can use the trip planner in several ways.
Basically, it is a catalog of all Slow Travel Guide’s posts, complemented with restaurants where we like to eat or hotels that we want to recommend, etc.
Why is it special?
Doesn’t Slow Travel Guide already have a map of Turkey with all posts on it? Absolutely! So, what makes this tool different?
For starters, the fact that you are able to create a profile. Doing that will allow you to make lists of places for your future Turkey travel adventures.
Secondly, you can leave reviews. We feel this feature will be very helpful for other travelers researching things to do in Turkey.
- Create an account
- Make lists of places you want to bookmark for future travels
- Share your lists with friends and family
- Leave reviews of the places you’ve visited
Our top tips to make the most of this trip planner
Of course, you can just click around and see what happens. But with some trial and error, we find that these are the things that will help you to get the best experience:
1. At the risk of repeating ourselves: first, create an account
2. Discover beautiful places all over Turkey
From the home page, you can choose to search per category, or by using a keyword. After you type 3 letters, the system will automatically show you a list of places that correspond.
Alternatively, you can explore our map page. Hovering over a photo of a place in the overview will show a bouncing pin on the map on its location. When moving the map, the results shown on the left-hand side will not change to match the map view. To see the details of a place on the map, just click on the pin, and then on the photo.
On the details page for each place, you will find a short description, a map with the exact location and the option to get directions to that place, and a tab with reviews left by other members.
YOU WILL LOVE THE FACT THAT WE ALWAYS SHOW 4 NEARBY PLACES ON EACH PLACE’S PAGE. THAT INCLUDES THE DISTANCE!
3. Make lists of places you want to visit & share them
Adding a place to a list is easy: just click on the ‘Save’ button below a place to add it to a list. If you haven’t created any lists yet, you will be asked to do so at that point. If you already have lists, you can add a place to an existing list, or create a new list to add it to.
YOU CAN CREATE AS MANY LISTS AS YOU WANT. IF YOU’RE PLANNING A ROAD TRIP, CONSIDER CREATING SEPARATE LISTS FOR EACH DAY.
Lists are private, which means that other site users cannot see your lists. Still, if you want to share a list with others, you can simply send them a link to it.
What if you want to remove a place from a list? Go to your bucket lists under the MEMBERS AREA in the main menu. Click on the list that you want to edit. Open the page of the place that you wish to remove, and click on the ‘Saved’ button to deactivate the save.
4. Leave reviews to help others
Have you visited one or more of the places? Please leave a review! It’s a great way for other travelers to figure out if they will like a place or not.
Positive or negative, please elaborate on why you liked or disliked something. We are all different. What you see as a negative, might be a plus for someone else, or the other way around.
We hope you like this Turkey trip planner, and that you find it useful.
