On my blog you find lots of useful information for traveling unknown parts of Turkey.
This picture is from Urfa. A beautiful old city in the Southeast of Turkey. I posted a full city guide and another post on three different daytrips you can make from Urfa.
The city is full of history. An ancient fortress, the birthplace of Abraham and one of the most beautiful markets in all of Turkey.
With cheap flights available and lots of other places to see in the area this is the perfect city to start you're trip in Eastern Turkey. But as flights are so cheap you can even consider just a city trip and a long weekend.
