Go east: getting off the tourist trail in Turkey

Diana Darke takes a closer look at the ancient temples, Ottoman mansions and remote valleys of Turkey’s little-visited eastern region.
Diana Darke, an Oxford Arabist, has written 16 books on the Near and Middle East, acquiring a rich appreciation of the region, its people, their culture and preoccupations during the 30 years she has lived and worked there. She communicates this in her guides, which are recognised as the leaders in their field, bringing countries to life through a host of colourful insights and through the inhabitants themselves. Her books also contain detailed itineraries and maps, with a wealth of practical information on transport, treks, hotels and restaurants.
