    good place to fill in luggages...

    by voyageur2 Written May 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: If you have not a strict schedule for business needs, allow enough time for shopping. Ankara offers you many alternatives and good price/quality ratio. So keep your luggage light as soon as possible while leaving your home.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: pay attenion to its hinterland or step climate. winters are cold and snowy, summers are hot and dry. arrange you cothes before or visit its street shops or the ones in malls. prices are reasonable mostly.

    Photo Equipment: recommending you a digital camera is enough for me.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: there are excellent trekking routes. if you decide to explore its nature, take your boots proper for outdoor conditions.

    Miscellaneous: One of the truly unmissable experiences of a trip to Turkey is a visit to the hamam. Like the harem, this Roman and Byzantine tradition was adopted and then perfected by the Selcuk Turks, for whom the public bath took on an important role. It was not merely a place where believers could fulfill the Islamic precept of cleanliness. It was a place in which to mingle, socialize and gossip. Women would proceed from their harem to the hamam with great ceremony, accompanied by servants heavily-laden with delicacies to tide the ladies over the hours they would spend lounging in the steam. The young women used this opportunity to show off their ornately embroidered towels and ivory inlaid slippers, not to mention their youthful figures, while older women would spot potential wives for their sons. Men would discuss the latest court scandal or talk business and politics. Contrary to popular ideas, hamams have always been either permanently designated for one of the sexes, or have a separate schedule for men and women.
