Why you should visit Turkey
Book one of our luxury holidays to Turkey and you can enjoy your stay in style and comfort. Now all you have to do is work out what to do with your time. Here are a few ideas...
- The Blue Lagoon
Olu Deniz in Dalaman is used to posing for pictures – the deep blue lagoon here is one of Turkey's most–photographed spots. Fringed with white sand and shingle, it's got a mild current so it's great for swimming in. The rugged mountains that frame the picture are good for hiking over, too.
- Meze feasts
You can hardly leave Turkey without trying some meze. It's kind of like Spanish tapas – lots of little dishes to pick and choose from. Icli kofte is a good choice. They're juicy meatballs with a crispy shell, filled with ground beef, onions, garlic and cumin. Follow it up with baklava – bite–sized sponge cakes drenched in honey and sprinkled with powdered pistachio.
- Alanya Castle
A 30–minute walk down the coast from Alanya's harbour is this Medieval castle. It's a huge, sprawling ruin, and there are 6–kilometre walls and a mosaic–tiled Byzantine church to root around. And from the top of the walls, you've got a fantastic bird's–eye view of the city below.
Kusadasi is a top spot to see both sides of Turkey. It's got smart shopping and modern bars, mixed up with sugarcube houses and wooden–clad, traditional meze restaurants. The Grand Bazaar is a must–see – a huge, winding souk filled with spices, woven carpets and leather. Turkey doesn't get much more authentic than this...
In recent years, stylish Bodrum Town has has been developing a reputation as the Turkish answer to St–Tropez. You'll find a well–to–do set down at the marina, enjoying the glamorous restaurants and bars. While away an hour or two watching the yachts go by – most of them are bigger than the average semi–detached house.
