Interesting question , I was expecting question like ArMenİAn gUnİcEde
Whats the problem ? I dont understand
no turkey is islamic country but in westside there are more people drinking alcohol
Drinking is not everyday stuff for Turks but half of the population consume alcohol once in a month at least.
It depends some people drink regulalry even though its expensive but some people not and some people never drink.When you go to east sites of the country there woman ussually never drink. Alcohol is reachable in turkey like in any other europian countries but it is expensive .Conservative government add a huge tax on alcholic beverages so this is the way they are punishing people who drink.
20% of the population drink alcohol casually
%30-40 drink rarely I guess.
But people usually buy as much as they can afford at free shops cuz it's a lot cheaper than normal shops in Turkey
In western site of Turkey it is very common unlike central anatolia but you can find alchol every part of the Turkey easily.
alcohol is common elsewhere in turkey but not that much. there are little shops that sell alcohol among other snacks etc called tekel, you can find tekels easily unless you're in a very conservative district. majority of supermarkets don't sell alcohol, but some do. there are also bars and clubs common in some parts of the cities.
i am speaking for ankara, i don't know if istanbul is a different case but i'd assume they are similar
Nobody can say that sometimes we dont drink but most of the alcohol at airports is for tourists/connecting passengers since Turkey is a little bit cheaper than Europe.
Turks recount like alcohol is a good thing xD
A lot of turks drink but the government taxes the shit out of it so when you buy 1 drink you buy 2 for the government, reinforcing the culture that its drunk occasionally, its not meant to be an everyday beverage like in eu
this is not just like this in Istanbul.this is the case in most places in anatolia.like Konya, the so-called religious city.but this is not true for the east of the country(these are my observations)
