I hate the place. Constantly over-charging British people because they think we're all stupid or something, and then when you argue the price, they get aggressive and punchy and start with the anti-British slurs and sometimes it gets near to a physical confrontation. Not that I'm scared of any slimey Turkish waiter mind you, but I can't stand the place personally and don't understand why it's so popular with the British. They clearly hate us, and only pretend to tolerate us as long as they think we're about to open are wallets, and then the minute they realise you're not going to spend money they start getting aggresive and swearing, call you a time waster for looking at not buying, etc. Also, a lot of the Turks blame the British for the collapse of their empire, so historically the Turks haven't considered us to be amongst their greatest of friends. I've never understood why it's so popular. The Turkish are constantly over-charging Brits in restaurants and in shops, and British people just seem to tolerate it. They clearly have no regard for British people and just see us as a bit soft and easy to take for a ride. Also, it's much the same in Morocco and Tunisia, they both have the rip-off the Brits mentality, but North Africa isn't that popular in comparison to Turkey with British tourists. Has anyone else got this impression from Turkey, or am I just a whinger?
