The best way to keep abreast of what’s happening in Turkey and abroad is by perusing one of the two English-language newspapers, both available in major cities and resorts. Longest-established is the Hürriyet Daily News (whurriyetdailynews.com; TL2), which follows the secular/nationalist line. Today’s Zaman (wtodayszaman.com TL1.5) is liberal/Islamic.
Time Out Istanbul, the local imprint of the London listings magazine, with an eighty-page English edition (TL6), is by far the best what’s-on listings magazine available (İstanbul only). Bimonthly Cornucopia (TL20) is an upmarket glossy, covering everything from history and travel to carpets and property renovation.
