Invigorate the senses

A trip to Turkey promises an assault on the senses and a taste of exotic European culture.

Enjoy the hustle and bustle of a local bazaar, experience a traditional Turkish hammam and savour the fragrant scent of local spices. Turkish cuisine is renowned for its diversity and a meal is an occasion to be enjoyed with enthusiasm. From Mediterranean flavours to spicier specialities the further east and south you travel, Turkish cuisine draws inspiration from the four corners of its former empires.

Step back in time

Turkey boasts the relics of an array of ancient civilisations, from the Byzantine to Persian Empires and evidence of the country’s rich heritage abounds. Monuments and temples vie for attention and Turkey plays host to two of the Ancient Wonders of the World, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus and the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus in Bodrum.

Sink into the sands

Just a stone’s throw from an archaeological treasure, Turkey’s shores meet four different seas. Beautiful, white-sandy beaches boast hidden coves and dramatic coastal backdrops while crystal clear waters and the turquoise tranquillity of the Dead Sea allow tourists to relax on sun-drenched shores or indulge in the array of available water sports.

From coastal hikes to scuba diving discoveries, much of Turkey’s natural landscape is protected by National Park status.

I really enjoyed my time in Turkey when I was there a few years back, and I hope to visit again and spend more time in this fascinating country. Goreme was my favourite location, but there is so much more to see!
