When we asked people about diversity in Turkey and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"The city is definitely very diverse, people from all backgrounds and also different religions. In general, the Turkish people are very open and kind to foreigners and guests and even if language may be sometimes a hindrance they will go out of their way to help a mom with kids for example," commented one expat who made the move to Istanbul, Turkey.
