Thinking about all the sides to Turkey can be a dizzying task. Mediterranean good looks, cosmopolitan culture, wonderful cuisine and the remnants of ancient empires are just a taste of what awaits you here.
Turkey is a place that seems to have the rare feature of being two things at once. Geographically speaking, it’s so large and so diverse while also acting as a buffer between Europe and Asia. Cities such as Istanbul and Ankara are developing and modernising rapidly while the countryside holds fast to its traditional values. It’s of tremendous religious importance to all faiths and yet there is no strict doctrine forced upon its people.
No matter what it is you’re looking for in your tailor-made Turkey holiday, there’s no question all desires can and will be met. It is, of course, a massive country with a wide array of attractions so the key is to know what type of an adventure you seek.
Are you enticed by endless white sandy beaches lining the Mediterranean? Is excavating archeological sites your objective? Does watching the golden sunset over the grand Istanbul skyline sound appealing? Whatever it may be, this place has something for everyone.
Come to Turkey without preconceived ideas because it is so full of mystery and wonderful surprises that any expectations will probably be fall short. One thing that is for sure is that a trip to the old Ottoman Empire will open your eyes to the glory it experienced and is continuing to enjoy.
