Istanbul, Bodrum

The perfect place for energetic explorers to immerse themselves in local life

Turkey bridges the gap between Europe and the Middle East, with glorious sunshine, brilliant beaches and tons of history and culture to discover. It’s a country you’ll never forget, especially with so many authentic souvenirs available such as carpets, jewellery, leather goods and crafts.

Istanbul is the quintessential cosmopolitan capital, with ostentatious palaces, mesmerising markets, hidden tea gardens, lavish baths and local mezes which fill the streets with their tantalising aromas. The morning mosque calls keep you in tune with the city. Visit Haghia Sophia, a dazzling Greek Orthodox cathedral, step inside the unique Blue Mosque, and pick up keepsakes from the world-famous Grand Bazaar.

Whether you’re interested in natural or ancient history, you have a wealth of destinations to choose from. View bizarre rock formations known as “fairy chimneys” in Cappadocia with a sunrise hot air balloon ride. Bathe in the warm waters which trickle down the hillside of Pamukkale and examine the ancient remains of this Roman spa city. The Ruins of Ephesus are another key attraction. Founded by Greeks in 10,000 BC, this UNESCO World Heritage Site was once the trading centre of the ancient world.

The Mediterranean beaches are idyllic and inviting. Explore the craggy bays of the Turkish Riviera or check out Patara Beach where you can observe nesting turtles. Meanwhile, Dalyan is well known for its rock tombs and mud baths. The Bodrum Peninsula is full of five-star hotels and historic sites. Behold the Temple of Artemis, hike through the sublime landscape, and take a gulet cruise.
