Turkey Travel Guide and Tourism

The transcontinental terrains of Turkey are replete with history and has something for every kind of traveller. On its Asian Anatolia end, Turkey’s Mediterranean shore beckons tourists with its charming coastal towns and the sweeping highland pastures offered by the magnificent Kaçkar Mountains. Cappadocia, boasting of undulating valleys and outlandish rock formations finds its places in almost every Turkey package, owing to its thrilling hot-air balloon rides. A major role is played in Turkey’s tourism scene, by its magical golden beaches, such as its longest beach - Patara. The country’s ethos lies in its plethora of ancient ruins. From Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace, to Aegean Turkey’s ancient city of Ephesus, whose Theater, the Temple of Hadrian and the Celsus Library are steeped in stories of the bygone eras. On the southern Aegean region of Turkey, lies Bodrum that is home to azure beaches, cliff-top resorts and the spectacular Castle of St. Peter. While touring Turkey, revel in its culinary delights as you feast on the spicy kebabs and the delectable baklava.
