If you're considering going to Turkey for a hair transplant, you might be wondering how safe Turkey is for tourists.

Turkey is an ideal destination for travelers. It is a safe country with friendly people.
With its unique history and culture, Turkey is a popular tourist destination, being the 6th most visited country globally.
Turkey has about 12 million tourists every year, making it one of the most visited countries in Europe with the fastest growing tourism sector in Europe with over 100% increase in visitors since 2009.
Thanks to its tourist-friendly infrastructure and natural beauty, it has become an exciting place to visit.
As a general rule, Turkey is as safe as any Western country. Crime rates are low - there's only one murder per 100,000 people each year - and you're more likely to be injured in a car accident than to be the victim of a violent crime.
But that doesn't mean you should wander the streets at night, solo. Even in a country as safe as the United States, it's not wise to walk down seedy alleys or visit shady bars alone after dark. It's the same in Turkey:  there are no-go zones, and some spots aren't safe for tourists at night.

If you're planning to get a hair transplant in Turkey, it's wise to be aware of the following:

Kadıköy and Taksim districts:  These are safe neighborhoods in İstanbul with heavy police presence. Especially Taksim is a stone's throw away from the historic Sultanahmet neighborhood. Avoid them after dark if you must go to these places for food or entertainment. This is an excellent place to take a taxi.
Harbiye, Beşiktaş, and Ortaköy districts:  These are other neighborhoods in İstanbul that tourists frequently visit.
Esenler, Tophane, Ümraniye, and Çekmeköy districts are further out of the city center. These places aren't dangerous to walk around at night.
Then there are some places tourists are not allowed to visit. Some of these areas have earned a bad reputation:
Esenler, Sarıyer, and Bağcılar districts:  These areas have become unsafe at night. Police will not protect you if you're the victim of a crime in these areas.  You may not even get help from the local police if you try to report the crime.
Küçükçekmece and Balmumcu districts:  These areas are also potentially dangerous at night, but police presence has improved here in recent years.

Checklist before visiting Turkey:

There are some precautions that every tourist should take while traveling in Turkey. First, make sure you have a passport with at least six months left before it expires. In addition, make sure you don't forget to pack your prescription medication if you need it. It is also good to get travel insurance and know what your health insurance policy does and does not cover while abroad.
The Turkish language has very little in common with English, so it's not easy to read or understand signs or menus in restaurants or shops. This is why tourists need to get acquainted with how Turkish people handle money and communicate before arriving in Turkey.
Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it! Locals are always eager to guide you around.
Be prepared for traffic jams! Traffic in Istanbul can be challenging, so it's best not to rely on public transportation alone.
