Straddling the diverse cultures of Asia and Europe, Turkey is a stunning destination displaying a rich history, vibrant culture, breathtaking landscapes, and incredible cuisine. Whether you’re looking to laze on the buttermilk beaches or delve into its ancient history with the ruins of Ephesus and Pergamum, Turkey is brimming with spellbinding attractions. Combining influences from the Mediterranean, Middle East, Central Asia and the Balkans, you’ll find yourself meandering through ancient Roman theatres and mosques; while dervish festivals form just as much of the cultural landscape as football games and music concerts.
The capital city of Ankara is a bustling metropolis, sporting ancient monuments and a lively nightlife. Istanbul, the vibrant cultural, economic and intellectual heart of modern Turkey, is home to a wealth of attractions, most notably the Byzantine church, Hagia Sophia.
The holidaymakers’ playground is Bodrum, which is home to an array of trendy nightclubs, beach resorts and Roman antiquities. Further south lies the famous beach paradise of Ӧlüdeniz. Far west, the coastal wonder of Izmir is a shopper’s haven with its labyrinth of colourful bazaars and fragrant eateries.
Grab your camera and discover central Aegean, where the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pamukkale is an awe-inspiring vision. Its white travertine terraces and hot springs gush up to the ancient city of Hierapolis. Coupled with this natural phenomenon is the enchanting landscape of Cappadocia – with its ‘fairy chimneys’ and caverns sprinkled among the villages.
From swanky rooftop bars and idyllic beaches, to wondrous landscapes and majestic architecture, Turkey is an unrivalled destination.
