Dynamic, buzzing and contemporary, Adana's visitors will enjoy its comfortable lifestyle . It's local economy is flourishing, it's town centre is ultra-modern and it boasts an impressive culinary heritage - the Adana Kebabs will have you drooling. At the same time, I wouldn't recommend the town to travellers who are on a cultural trail during their time in Turkey. Adana doesn't have many tourist attractions and is really a place for those seeking an urban buzz. If that's not your case, then you'll be better off heading to the nearby coastal towns.
Being a busy intersection, you may well pass through the town, so I'd still suggest you stop for a few hours and enjoy a coffee break on one of its many, shady cafe terraces.
It was whilst travelling to Mersin that I stopped off at Adana. Located approximately thirty kilometres from the Mediterranean coast, this amazing city rejoices with effervescence. During the summer, the temperatures rise considerably. Thus, I strongly advise you to sit down in one of the numerous terraces located on the main streets and observe the bustling life.
Regarding monuments, Adana is considered "poor" compared with other cities in the country. Stroll along the arch bridge which cross the River Seyhan. Moreover, echoes ring around the subject of archaeology and ethnography museums.
Adana offers you tasting experiences during your trip to Turkey ! Thus, you can't leave the city without having tried the area's reputable dish: the Adana Kebap. This spicy, minced meat skewer is a delight for your taste buds. They are without doubt the best that I tried in the country. They are all served a la turka, that's to say, generously. Why not try the Salgam suyu, an amazing turnip juice? The local population like it with raki.
