A fantastic, bustling mix of east and west awaits the visitor to Turkey. The countryside, with its pine covered hillsides and fascinating archaeological sites, is a cultural as well as a visual feast while, along the coastline, the azure sea laps uninterrupted miles of soft silky sands.

The delight of Turkey lies in the bustle and excitement which the region presents to its visitors. Its legendary bazaars are a bargain hunter’s dream with cheap leather goods, brass items, and, of course, the Turkish carpets! The local food is marvelous and you will have plenty of choice whether you are looking for a sophisticated gourmet restaurant, chic cafes, waterfront fish restaurants, local lokantas or an authentic kebab house. Sightseeing enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice too, with highlights such as  Ephesus, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world; the white calcified waters of Pamukkale and the impressive Lycian Rocks tombs on offer.  A visit to the vibrant and ever-stimulating city of Istanbul is easy to arrange an independent excursion or a guided tour: an amazing opportunity to see the former Constantinople where Europe and Asia meet.

The Aegean Coast blends the ancient world with fantastic scenery and emerging beach resorts such as Kusadasi. This popular destination has an abundance of shops, eating places, two waterparks and is surrounded by beaches, one of the most famous being the  ‘Ladies’ Beach’.  At night the resort has a bustling and lively atmosphere especially around the aptly named  Bar Street.  Turgutre is prettily surrounded by mountains and the resort’s tourism is centered on its main square, circled by shops, cafes, and restaurants: perfect for an evening promenade!
