Turkey is an incredibly diverse country with so much to offer: ancient ruins and magnificent architecture, dazzling natural beauty, world-class cuisine, one of the world's greatest cities and a unique culture combining European, Asian and Middle Eastern influences. It's also safe, affordable and remarkably family friendly.
Head to Istanbul, truly one of the world's greatest cities, for breathtaking mosques, bustling bazaars and intriguing history. Admire the magnificent architecture of the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya, head to a hammam for a relaxing soak and scrub, savour Turkish cuisine and culture in a local meyhane, and bargain for exquisite carpets, textiles and leatherwork in the famous Grand Bazaar.
Visit Gallipoli's moving war memorials and monuments, marvel at the ancient Greco-Roman ruins of Ephesus and head to Konya to watch the Whirling Dervishes perform their hypnotic prayer-dance.
Sail along Turkey's spectacular coast, bathe in Pamukkale's turquoise terraced hot springs and take a hot-air balloon over Cappadocia's surreal Fairy Chimneys. Lace up your boots and hike stunning mountains and coastal trails, tackle a summit of Turkey's highest peak, Mt Ararat, or simply unwind on endless perfect beaches.
No matter your interests or fitness level, Turkey is an outstanding travel destination that should be high on your wish list!
