well...if you come to Turkey one day, people suggest you to visit istanbul or towns by the sea...usually west of turkey...ancient sites etc...and you cant have a chance or get into with local people...I lived in Toronto two years...somethings that I couldnt understand about canadian culture or society came clear after two years..I think sometimes we have to be patient to understand...Gaziantep is an interesting is one of the oldest city in the world...and there is not many tourists right now..but I am sure it would more can just visit Gaziantep to taste the best food in turkey and deserts such as baklava in turkey...hope to see you in gaziantep:)))

Thanks for the review! I didn't get a chance to visit here when I visited Turkey, but it sounds like a very interesting place.

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!
