Uludag is situated approximately 100 miles (161 kilometers) northwest of Ankara, the country's capital.
And remember, there is more to Southern Marmara than just Uludag, so schedule in some time to tour the region's attractions. Zonguldak, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south, and Mengen, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northwest of Uludag are also well worth checking out.
Holy places are the perfect portals into a region's soul. The mosques of Southern Marmara are certainly no exception.
With life so busy, the ideal vacation is often all about making time to relax. When it's time to unwind, copy the locals and enjoy picnicking or beach combing. There are some great ways for thrill seekers to get into the great outdoors in and around Uludag. Mountain climbing and hiking are just two ways active visitors can get their thrills.
Impress residents in Turkey by using some commonly used Turkish sentences. "Benimle dans eder misiniz?" is good to know. In English, it means "Would you like to dance with me?" You'll also realise that knowing how to say "Nerelisin?", which means "Where are you from?", can be very handy.
When it's time to leave this special part of the world, say a fond Hoşçakal (farewell) to the people you've got to know and the locations you've been.
