  1. If you're in or around Adana, might be at Incirlik Air Base which is about 10 or so kilometers east of there. Honestly I found Adana to be a bit bleak compared to other Turkish cities, but there are things to do. Adana is a working, industrial city that doesn't particularly cater to tourists. There's a large lake (Seyhan Gölü) with a road going along the shore where there are a some very pleasant restaurants. Nice place to relax. There are also a few places around the lake where you can drive up and hang out on the "beach," or go for a swim. There's also the M1 mall where you'll find modern conveniences, shopping, and restaurants. There are some good restaurants and night clubs in city center as well. The city has a few top-notch hotels including the Hilton. The Mediterranean Sea is a mere 25 minutes away, Karataş being the closest beach town. It's a rather sleepy fishing village on the shore. Better beaches are to be found west of Adana, by taking the highway to Mersin and driving along the coastal road. You're not far from Cappadocia, which is absolutely worth the visit! Allow three days for that, there are many wonders to see there! Mersin reminded me of a more touristic city. It is definitely worth a visit for its seafood restaurants and the lovely promenade along the shore. Tarsus, where the apostle Paul was born, is very close to Adana, and any tourist coming to Adana probably comes for that! Or perhaps the absolutely huge mosque there built by one of the richest families in Turkey, the Sabancı family. The patriarch of the family is from Adana, and he decided to build a mosque there. It rivals the Blue Mosque in Istanbul and you shouldn't miss it. If you're going to Adana, I've lived there and would be happy to answer your questions.
  2. You must apply for your residence permit online, at For first-time applications, the online system will give you an appointment date (or you will receive one by SMS message) for you to provide the required documents in person, at the Adana Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (Directorate General of Migration Management, or DGMM). Renewal (extension) applications are also done online, but instead of going to the DGMM for an appointment you can mail your documents to the local DGMM office. The online system will give you an address to which you must mail your documents, within five days after you successfully submit your application. Turkey has a national helpline for foreigners who have questions or issues about residence permits. From any telephone within Turkey, call 157.

    Moving To Adana

    Hi, I'm a new to this site and was wondering how I should go about finding employment in Adana. I was actually born in Adana but moved to the U.S. in 1966. I have decided to move back to my hometown but would like to work. I speak Turkish but it's not quite strong. I"m wondering if anyone can provide me with help regarding this. I have searched the internet but only came across teaching jobs and I don't have any training or certification. I did think about private tutoring. Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Some Photos from Adana

    I recently stayed with a friend in Adana, in a downtown area called Cemalpaşa. It's here: It was a very nice, upscale shopping district, which reminded me of the Alsancak district in Izmir. My friend had a two-bedroom apartment there, and said he was paying 750 TL a month for it. Just a regular apartment with nothing fancy. Here are some photos of the district: While there, we also went to the M-1 Shopping Mall which is here: They had expanded the M-1 Mall a lot, it was huge! Here are some photos: Enjoy the photos. For some of my older ones, including the local sights like the archaeological museum and the Sabancı Mosque, see the Adana Photo Galleries.

    Making friends in Adana

    Around 2 months ago I moved to Adana to be with my Turkish boyfriend who lives here. I'm British and I kinda know the Turkish language. I'm still learning but at the moment I can write in Turkish, but I can't actually speak Turkish. My boyfriend works full time in a gym, so I'm alone most of the time and I don't know anybody else here. I haven't met any other British people here or any Americans, Australians or native English speakers. I have also noticed that Turkish girls seem to not like me. There have been a few occasions since being here that I have had "snide" remarks from some Turkish girls when they have seen that I'm British not Turkish and also a lot of nasty looks when I'm walking in the street with my boyfriend I'm not sure why it is but I haven't had this kind of thing with Turkish men and to be honest older Turkish women haven't been like this towards me at all it seems to be the Turkish girls who are around my age (20) so that's made it really hard to make any friends and feel settled because I have no female friends to talk too here. Any suggestions on how I could make some friends in Adana would be very much appreciated.

    living in Adana

    Hello everyone. I am a new member here. I am living in Adana for 2 years. I am married to a Turkish man, have a 10-month-old son. Are there women like me in Adana? Let's communicate, share our worries and happy moments.
  14. My name is Ed. I'm a naturalized US citizen who for the last 4 years has been living in Alanya. Visited Adana last year, which was more of forced trip if you will. We had to notarize same papers at the US Embassy. Long story short, we loved the place. The food, the people. Overall, it was a very nice experience. So we have decided to make the move to Adana and are excited about the idea. I was wondering if I could get some advice from members of this forum like Greenstein, Conan, Ken, Gupsise and others in terms of what areas to consider for rent. Also, what's the going rent rate for a two bedroom plus? More importantly though, I have a 3-year residence permit which expires in a couple of months. At which place do foreigners go for renewals?

    British Expats in Adana

    I am currently living in Adana. Are there any other British expats in Adana?
  16. Please I have been in a long-distance relationship with this man for over 4 yrs now, only Skypeing and Facebook not much more then that, promises of marriage and love, he won't allow me to come to see him, he always has an excuse of work and he can't afford to pay for me, I never ask him to pay for me but it is his so called pride that makes him believe he has to be the one to support me while i am there. I need to know how I can find him, I really need to know if he is married and that is why he is not allowing me to come see him nor meet his family. Very hurt and feeling alone here. I am losing my mind.

    Izmir vs Adana

    Hi All, My husband (ret US Army) and I are planning to move to Turkey and wanted to know whether Izmir or Adana was a better choice in terms of: [*]access to the bases for health care, commissaries, etc [*]expat community [*]ability to walk around or go running/hiking [*]safety as we may be traveling quite a bit for my job [*]restaurants, shops, things to do [*]availability and affordability of 1 BR furnished apartments (seems like this isn't too common but unfortunately, we have no furniture because we've both been working overseas for a while) [*]We're spending 3 weeks in October to explore both places and hopefully, find a place to live. Can anyone refer us to a real estate agent we can trust? I went to the websites suggested on the forum but was a bit overwhelmed with apartments, flats, villas, detached houses, residences, waterside houses, winter houses, etc so I thought we should get an agent before we wound up in a tent somewhere Thanks!

    New to Adana and Turkey

    I arrived here two weeks ago and I'm about to stay in Adana for two years, perhaps even longer. For the past two weeks I've been spending most of my time indoors because I don't speak Turkish. Optimum outlet is by far the most frequently-visited place for me. I would be more than happy to meet some new friends. Oh, BTW, I'm a 24-year-old Chinese (male if you have to know.) I don't speak Turkish but speak relatively good English. I don't think there are many Asian people here in Adana? I heard there is an American air base here so perhaps there are many American soldiers? Cool!
