Question: What is the time difference?

Yes, providing your phone is international roaming enabled. The 3 main GSM operators in Turkey are Turkcell, Avea and Vodafone and all GSM operators have roaming agreements with international operators.

Question: Can I use my Credit Card?
Credit cards are accepted in most shops and restaurants in the main Cities or Resorts areas. This may not be the case in smaller villages or remote places so it is generally a good idea to try always to have some cash handy. 

Question: Is it safe in Turkey?
Turkey is arguably one of the safest countries in the world to visit and the crime rate is low when compared to many Western European countries. Interpol ranks Turkey as the safest holiday destination in Europe for travelers. For sure common sense precautions should be taken against petty crimes such as pick pocketing, bag snatching etc. but by and large visitors will find Turks to be friendly and helpful.

Question: Is the running water drinkable?
Tap water in Antalya is chlorinated and fluoridated and is safe to drink. In other areas of the country, be sure to ask first.

    You truly are a multi-talent, and apparently you also sorang photographers, wooow ... I think you are not an amateur, but already a professional, I love your photos, I'm collect photos mosque in the world, perhaps you can help me to find mosques, especially the historic, all of that will increase my faith.
    I was thinking if later I want to go to Umrah pilgrimage took them to Turkey, I hope it can be realized, when I first leave the Hajj to Makkah Al-Mukaromah I take the regular package from the government, so only ziarahnya around Mecca and Medina only.
    Clearly interested in me with what you show in your Blog
