Holidays in Turkey are fast becoming a favourite with British holidaymakers. Not only are Turkey holidays great value for money, but you are virtually guaranteed to enjoy hot summer temperatures, a warm welcome, and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This east-meets-west nation sits between the Mediterranean, Black and Aegean seas, and is jam-packed with quaint fishing ports, pretty hillside villages, and modern resorts. Experience boat trips, historical sites, vibrant markets, water sports and much more in this eclectic destination. The ancient city of Istanbul is a must-visit for a weekend break with its famous Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. Take your pick from a vast array of accommodation options, from traditional guest houses and self catering apartments, to all inclusive resorts and family friendly hotels. From the breathtaking blue waters of the Turquoise coast, to the sophisticated Turkish Riviera, and the fascinating culture of the Bodrum area, Turkey holidays always hit the spot.
There are a plenitude of things to do on Turkey holidays - from sightseeing, mud baths, paragliding, hiking and horse riding to parasailing, white water rafting, diving, and golf. If you're staying on the Bodrum coast, don't miss a trip to historical Ephesus. On the Turquoise Coast, sail down the Dalyan River and spot beautifully preserved tombs and endangered loggerhead turtles.
Nightlife in Turkey varies greatly, depending on where you choose to stay. Marmaris, Hisoronu, Bodrum and Gumbet are packed with late-night bars, clubs and discos perfect for party animals. Other resorts offer plenty of after-dark venues, but are on the quieter side. In many all-inclusive hotels, entertainment is in house and often includes Turkish nights with live music and belly dancing.
The restaurants and cafes in Turkey serve up a host of treats to tickle your taste buds. Tuck into delicious regional specialities such as kebabs, Turkish delight and baklava. In larger resorts, the restaurants embrace flavours from around the globe, alongside the odd fast food joint.
