Thanks to holiday deal websites and travel agents, it’s easy to obtain low-price yet highly satisfying Turkey holidays. If one wishes to generate some truly wonderful memories, they should, however, plan ahead a little.
A tourist in Turkey should never miss the country’s top attractions which successfully fuel its unique charm. Each trip to Turkey should include at least a few of these must-haves:
A suitable seaside resort- Turkey has many of the 5-star beaches of the world. There are ones for families (Kusadasi, Icmeler), for groups (Marmaris), for singles (Bodrum) or for couples (Daylan, Olu Deniz). Matching the resort type with the holiday purpose is definitely a clever move.
Ancient history treasures- From ancient Greek ruins to medieval Ottoman heritage, the whole territory of Turkey is like an open-air museum. See St. Peter’s Castle in Bodrum, built out of Halicarnassus Mausoleum pieces, Troy, the city of Ephesus or the Temple of Artemis in ruins. The Datca Peninsula is a history-rich spot and tends to be rather quiet.
A visit to Istanbul- Although it is not the capital of the country, it is by far it’s best city. This is an ancient place packing 2,500 years of history and the pearl of both Byzantine and Ottoman empires. Istanbul is also the city that bridges the Asian and European continents.
A boat hire- Perfect for lazy days, it is an excellent way to explore the sparkling blue gulfs and the islands around the shore. The coasts in the south and the south-west of the country are the most suitable. Sailing boats are available in almost all the resorts. You may have your meals aboard and spend time swimming in empty coves.
A visit to Pamukkale and Cappadoccia- Translated as The Cotton Castle, Pamukkale is a place of incredible natural beauty. It’s made of terrace-like lime pools of surreal beauty that reflect the bright blue of the sky, sometimes changing to green. Cappadoccia is an arid place of equal charm, with unusual rock formations with numerous carved lodgings.
Whichever area of the dazzling Turkey one may choose to visit, it will never lack in attractive sights. The country’s currently booming touristic industry is proof that the places are mesmerizing and the services are worth the money. Besides, it’s difficult to go wrong when the weather is hot and sunny for most of the time.
Plan your next holiday to Turkey and make the best of it!
