The Foreign Office has updated its advice on travel to Turkey in light of the recent demonstrations. It highlights areas of Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir as particular hotspots.
Following recent demonstrations in cities across Turkey, further violent protests remain possible. You should avoid all demonstrations and leave the area if one develops. Local transport routes may be disrupted. You may wish to allow extra time for local travel, particularly airport transfers.
