Going to Turkey for a week next summer and us adults are looking forward to an hour in the spa which includes Turkish bath/steam room and massage etc

Can kids do these things too? The kids will be 11 and 13.

Girls or boys? The Turks scarcely know the meaning of health and safety and will let you do most things if you pay them. Can't see that there's a reason to stop them for their health but for a full soap massage women take their tops off and the boobs get done too. Can't see teenage girls going for that! Turkish baths are great fun but check the gender of the masseur in advance if you're squeamish!

Can't see that there would be a problem. Me and DH had two in Turkey. Both were very traditional though and had seperate female and male areas.

At 11 and 13 it will be fine.

Not all women take their tops off, I certainly didn't, there is no way a strange man would be touching my boobs shock
