Socializing with fellow Koreans is an important facet of living abroad and can be a huge stepping stone in getting to know the Turkish mentality and way of life. Koreans in Turkey are a part of our community, calling cities such as Ankara, Antalya, Istanbul, and many others home. You can use InterNations to look for fellow Koreans in Istanbul, for example.
