Can anyone let me know the best way to get to Diyarbakir, I was there in October but the flights seem to be hard to get and the prices have become very high from the uk. I flew from London to Istanbul and then Istanbul to Diyarbakir which I got through Thomas Cook but it is the wrong time of year, I can get a cheap enough flight to Istanbul but it only seems to be Turkish airways to get to Diyarbakir has anyone got any better ideas? It is a really nice place to visit I found the city walls amazing but didnt manage to go the whole way around!! it is well worth a visit to see the unspoilt side of Turkey and to be welcomed into Turkish Homes and see their way of living. Has anyone got any ideas of a good place to stay that would welcome me and my Turkish Partner, I did find one hotel last time but it was not cheap. I would like to spend the new year there, can anyone tell me if they have ever spent new year here and what it is like?
