Where to stay in Turkey

THE BASICS

Sitting on the banks of the Bosphorus is spectacular Istanbul, divided by the Golden Horn. A colourful and historic city that is great for city breaks and can easily entertain longer stays.

The Turquoise Coast stretches from Dalyan to Antalya and includes the most beautiful coastline in the Mediterranean; crystal clear waters, caves, reefs, sunken cities and ancient artifacts. Inland, there are opprtunities for trekking, mountain biking and touring. Kas and Kalkan are traditional fishing villages, whereas Oludeniz is a sweeping picture-postcard bay and Bodrum a well-established holiday beach resort. Welcome to the blue seas and ancient green lands of Turkey…

TOP THINGS TO DO

Istanbul is one of few places where you can wander between continents without breaking a sweat. The city spans across the Bosphorus, so half of it is in Europe and half in Asia. You can take a ferry across or a sunset cruise up one coastline and down the other.

The Turkish baths – hammams – are one of the must-do experiences when you arrive in this country. Divided into men’s and women’s areas, sit in the heat to open up the pores and sweat out all the bad stuff. After that, you have it all scrubbed off your skin and you can plunge into a cold pool to wake your muscles up.

If you want to get out the city, take a gander at the incredible Sumela Monastery, which is cut out of a cliff face. The Byzantine-era monastery shines orange in the sun as you approach by foot on a winding path.

For those who like the coastline, but don’t want to sit on a beach all day, there’s the Blue Cruise – a three-day boat trip along the Turquoise coast in a traditional Turkish sailing vessel. Along the way you can swim, scuba dive or snorkel to see turtles feeding. Or just lie out on deck and soak up the hot sun.
