Will I be in danger?
Violent crime, including assault and rape, is less common in Turkey than in many developed Western countries. No one can predict the future or what will happen to any individual traveler, but many people say they feel safer in Turkey than at home. Take common-sense precautions and observe local norms and you should feel safe in Turkey. Reported hassles include staring, minor groping and pinching, unpleasant sounds and comments, and unwanted romantic advances.
