Is Turkey a good place to work remotely

Turkey is one of the most diverse and colorful countries in the world, offering a unique blend of European and Asian cultures. With its rich history and varied landscapes, Turkey is a captivating destination that appeals to both history enthusiasts and nature lovers.

Renowned for its warm hospitality, delicious cuisine, stunning beaches, and a wide range of tourist experiences, Turkey boasts over 12,000 km of picturesque coastline dotted with beautiful beaches and luxurious resorts. The country is also home to numerous historical and natural sites, including 13 UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Archaeological Site of Troy, Ephesus, Hierapolis-Pamukkale, Great Mosque, and Hospital of Divriği.

Turkey is gaining popularity among remote workers seeking a workation experience. With a plethora of cities to choose from, captivating natural attractions to explore, and tranquil beach settings, Turkey offers a diverse range of options for remote workers. Moreover, the country boasts a low cost of living and a convenient remote working infrastructure. In major cities like Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir, you’ll find numerous coworking spaces that provide opportunities to connect with both locals and fellow foreigners. If you prefer coastal areas, you can enjoy excellent amenities and services in hotels, coffee shops, and shared flats. The possibilities are limitless.

Something that Turkey is not widely known for is its excellent ski slopes, offering a more affordable alternative to ski resorts in the Alps. In addition to its stunning beaches, Turkey also boasts a fascinating claim to fame as the birthplace of tulips. We highly recommend experiencing the vibrant Tulip Festival in Istanbul, held annually in April, where you can immerse yourself in a kaleidoscope of colors.

With its remarkable cultural heritage and diverse range of experiences, Turkey is emerging as a must-visit destination. Describing these experiences often feels inadequate in capturing the true essence of the country’s rich cultural tapestry. Nonetheless, allow us to attempt to convey its magnificence.

Things to do

Culture Immerse yourself in the rich history of Turkey by exploring the ancient ruins of Ephesus and marvel at the grandeur of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.
Dining Indulge in the diverse flavors of Turkish cuisine by trying traditional dishes like kebabs, baklava, and Turkish tea, and don't miss out on the delicious street food found in the bustling markets.
Sights Take a hot air balloon ride over the otherworldly landscapes of Cappadocia and witness the stunning panoramic views of the fairy chimneys and rock formations.
Entertainment Experience the vibrant nightlife in Istanbul by visiting the trendy rooftop bars and clubs in the city center, where you can dance the night away to a mix of traditional and modern music.
Shopping Get lost in the colorful and bustling Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, where you can haggle for unique souvenirs, carpets, spices, and beautiful handmade ceramics.
Outdoor Explore the breathtaking natural wonders of Pamukkale, where you can soak in the thermal waters and walk on the stunning terraces of mineral-rich calcium deposits, creating a surreal landscape.
