1. Gaziantep is so famous with its cuisine and deserts...so try to taste all kind of dishes not only Kebabs or Lahmacun...it has also lots of vegitable dishes...there are lots of nice restuarants...However,people who from outside of the city ,go to İmam cagdas Restuarant near by the castle...Gaziantep has the biggest kitchen in Turkey, it has originally over 300 different dishes...and about deserts...you are going to eat the most delicious Baklava in the world..I suggest you to try my favourite sweets..Katmer and Burma Kadayıf...

Gaziantep Archeology Museum (Zeugma Eserleri) May 15, 2008
We visited the Archeology Museum while we were in Gaziantep for one day. There is really a fantastic collection of mosaics to see for example Achilles At Skyros, The Gypsy Gırl and many others.
Entrance is only 2 Turkish lire .
So if you are in Gaziantep and if you are interested in history the museum is really worth to see!
