    I'd definitely go. Turkey is governed by an utter twunt but that doesn't mean I think it's particularly unsafe for tourists.

    I was actually planning to go there but my parents talked me out of it because of all the bombings, so I'm going to Dubai instead.

    1) Not really safe, not many places are

    2) More importantly, you should not be supporting Turkey with your tourist money
