Hi,

Does anyone know what Malatya is like ? We have been offered jobs there starting ASAP . The money is pretty good. Is it safe and are the people OK ?
Any other info would be great.

Thanks for your help.

Smile

Whats the "good" pay? Are you in a private school or a language course?
Malayta is not on the top 10 of Turkish cities to visit or live, google it to find out more. Will be bloody hot in the summer!

Have googled it. The info was not especially helpful. The money seems OK according to a friend who is working in Istanbul. We have just come back from working in Sudan and the heat is not a problem. Smile)

Malatya is very conservative. I visited once a few years ago and although fine for a visit, personally, I wouldn't choose to live there.
It would probably be easier for a male foreigner than a female one.
There are interesting places to visit nearby, eg Nemrut Dag.
The climate is harsh - hot, dry summers and cold winters with snow.

I realise my reply is late in coming. Did you take the job, and, if so, how is it so far?
