    The world's oldest man is the biggest open air museum in the village of İslahiye in Gaziantep district Yesemek. İslahiyeye road 25 km far transport provided with paths are not very good but it's not bad if it's a little hard to visit in a private vehicle will be .... MÖ2000 li years history museum is located in the center of the Hittites sculpture production. Is written in one of the most precious artifacts missed, however, unfortunately. Free entry to the Museum will help a volunteer citizen named Ahmed's profile is written in very good. The Museum is the most noticeable 10tonluk lion statue At trolley statues sculpture and have the N-men and women. To face the day justice is obvious that works.

And on the way to walk around all day, eat A few hours to spend there semek village located within the forest, next to a wooden bridge dam dam I would recommend doing your scenic picnic. The best time to visit is spring the weather gets too hot.

    Very lovely place for those with machine. Travel from cities with half an hour without traffic jams.

Where to stay in Gaziantep

In Gaziantep you can wander the narrow-laned old town, with its old stone houses, just steps from your hotel. Because many of the old houses and their large interior courtyards have survived for decades, they now house museums, cafes, hotels, and inns. Surrounding the Old Town is a collection of moderately priced three- and four-star hotels. The city is well known for its food culture, restaurants, baklava bakeries, and bustling bazaars, so you'll want to stay close to the downtown core to experience that atmosphere. If budget is concern, look to the few guesthouses and hostels in the city, although they are a little removed from the central area.
