Welcome to Turkey

The City on Seven Hills

Turkey is a relatively popular holiday destination, and we aren’t surprised. It is a truly unique nation that finds itself partly in Europe and partly in Asia, and this gives it a rich and diverse heritage.

Travellers will get to experience this great diversity in a number of ways, as well as enjoy excellent sandy beaches, beautiful mountainous terrain, and vibrant cities.

The north of the country is bordered by the Black Sea and the Mediterranean to the south. Because of this, the north enjoys warmer winters, and you will find warmer summers in the south.

Incredible Destination

There are plenty of great beach resorts and sandy beaches for tourists to visit. Sunbathing, swimming, water sports, scuba diving, and boat trips are also popular in these locations

Exploring Turkey’s rich history and culture is a must for visitors with a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the seven wonders of the ancient world in the Temple of Artemis.

Turkey is also home to picturesque lakes and rivers, lush hills, and the stunning Ayder Plateau. This is ideal for nature lovers and those who like to be more active on their holidays.

The friendly and welcoming people, vibrant nightlife, and delicious cuisine all make Turkey holidays extremely popular.
