A land where breath-taking scenery meets ancient history, delicious food and vibrant culture, Turkey is a place like no other. Whether you’re relaxing on golden beaches or exploring cosmopolitan cities, your holiday to this enchanting eastern gem will be full of unforgettable memories.
At Turkey’s modern beach resorts, you’ll enjoy sun-soaked days on the picturesque coast before tucking into a meal at one of the local family-run restaurants. When night falls, sip on a freshly-made cocktail while watching live music, or dance the night away at one of the popular clubs.
For a more laid back holiday, stay in a tranquil bay or discover an ancient town where you can relax and leave your worries far behind. From the white sands and blue lagoon at Olu Deniz to tranquil gulet cruises on the crystal clear seas, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
To find out more about Turkey’s fascinating history, a visit to the capital Istanbul is a must. Explore the city’s cultural sights, from Hagia Sophia to Basilica Cistern, before trying your hand at haggling in the sprawling Grand Bazaar.
Beyond the capital, the ruined city of Ephesus and the tea gardens of Konya provide a picturesque backdrop to discover Turkey in times gone by. In Antalya, on the southern coast, you’ll find a charming old town just a stone’s throw from gorgeous sandy beaches. From Byzantine churches to ancient amphitheatres, Turkey is a land full of historic wonders.
When you’ve worked up an appetite exploring the cities or trying water sports at the beach, enjoy a traditional spread of fresh mezze, from chargrilled lamb to aubergine dips and cheesy pastries, before sampling local liquors or sipping on a cool, refreshing beer.
