In the wake of the Taksim Gezi Park events which have now been brought to an end in Istanbul by the police service for the sake of public safety, there are absolutely no safety issues in either Turkey's coastal areas
or in its touristic areas. There are however some groups demonstrating in the areas around Taksim, though these are not having any adverse effect on the transport or security situation there. Furthermore every
sort of touristic activity is carrying on as normal.
