'''Gaziantep''', also colloquially known as '''Antep''', is a city in [[Turkey]] close to the border with [[Syria]]. The region code is '''27'''.
It's not very hard to find rides with truckers from [[Istanbul]] to Gaziantep, you just have to find the right spot.
[[User:Harveypekar|harveypekar]] told his ride into the city he was coming only for the baklava, and was treated to a heroic quantity as well as being dropped off back on the highway.
===South towards [[Kilis]], [[Syria]]===
[[User:Guaka|guaka]] did it in 2008 but doesn't remember much of the details. Maybe he even took a bus to Kilis. It looks like you have to go towards the airport. There's not much traffic south from Kilis (on the Gaziantep Kilis Yolu), so it's probably better to first get into the center of Kilis and then go South from there if you're heading to Syria.
On the other side of the border is Syrian town of [[Azaz]], a very conservative place which may require some caution. See [[Azaz]] article for full details.
