Good to know before you travel to Turkey

1. The Turkish don't speak English

I mean not at all. While in the touristy places, such as Istanbul or Antalya they are obviously used to tourists, thus can communicate in English, once you leave the busy places, you will have to make do with your hands (or other parts of your body), or ideally learn some Turkish.
