This was my first time to visit Ankara. Compared with other cities in Turkey, Ankara, despite the fact it is the capital city, is less well-known for some reason. (At least to me). Many of my friends actually believed Istanbul is the capital of Turkey.
One thing that impressed me about Ankara is that the streets are very neat and clean. The whole city is pretty quiet. I loved the small mansions along the little streets. And the roads are twisted and sloped, which are attractive to me. Unfortunately, I was in Ankara to meet Chinese counselor and ambassador, so my exploration of the city was limited to the embassy area. I don't know if other areas are the same.
Also the whether was nice and cool. The sun was shining brightly, yet I could barely feel the heat. In Adana, gosh, I could get myself burnt in the sun.
Loved the city. Wish I had more time to stay. Maybe next time.
