  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. North (New) Adana has wider streets, and a more posh feel to it than Eski Adana (Old Adana). North Adana is pretty much anything north of the E-5 highway which bisects the city.

    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!
  4. I am a Turkish student studying at Çukurova University, the Department of English Language Teaching. If anyone needs help, I'm here. I would also love to here your thoughts about our city Adana. Do you like it?
  5. 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.

    Moving to Adana

    Hi, Had plans to move to Adana last year but it didn't work out. Long-story short, will be in Adana in a few days to look for apartments (kiralik). Can you please recommend a good and trustworthy real estate agent? I'd appreciate it. tx

    New to Adana

    I had a 6 Month extendable contract in Adana. I should be in Adana by end of September. I never been to Adana before. Can you help about activities can be done after work or in weekends? I know Turkish as well so it will not be that hard to communicate.
  8. 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.
  9. I am from Georgia. Adana Çukurova University. accepted my internship. I am worrying that it is near the Syrian boarder. Is it safe to live in Adana? As I was told there is conflict and it is not recommended to go to Adana. What will you suggest me?
  10. What is the cost of the accommodation for 2 weeks near Çukurova Üniversitesi? I need a cheap small room with a bathroom.
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. I am currently living in Adana. Are there any other British expats in Adana?
  14. 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.
  15. I just got in last night. I will be here for around 6 months. I look forward to traveling some and good food and shopping. I have read some forum posts and found some info. If anyone has any recommendations of places to go or things to do please let me know.

  20. 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!
  21. I am thinking of taking a job teaching English in Adana in June. I was just hoping to talk to some people here before I go. Any advice is welcome
  22. The sky is so much blue that it sometimes gives me a strange feeling of being put into a huge painting. Perhaps it's because I rarely see such blue sky in China. I also love those cute clouds!! They are floating at will and constantly changing shapes. So much fun to view them. I took some photos of them from the balcony of my apartment using my camera. I should have done a better job taking photos but I was at a hurry at that time. Maybe next time I will present you with better works. Just to share them with you. I wonder why the pictures look so small? But it doesn't matter. You can view the original size by clicking on them. Some of the photos are taken using my camera while others are taking using my phone.
