    I haven't been to Didim, but I recently read about it while looking into the state of veganism in Turkey.

    Didim, a Turkish city on the Aegean coast, has declared itself "Vegan Friendly". It is the second city in the world to do so, after Barcelona in 2016. In addition to an annual vegan/vegetarian festival, the first of which was held in April 2017, they are planning to systematically offer vegan options at restaurants and will ban (or have already banned) circuses and dolphin parks. Didim's mayor and governor are firmly behind this initiative, in collaboration with the Vegan and Vegetarian Society of Turkey. A second festival is planned for April 2018.

    (Note that the west coast of Turkey is the most progressive part of the country. They vote against the conservative parties in every election.)
