Travel To Turkey

Turkey is one of the world’s major tourist destinations owing to its rich cultural heritage, resorts, spas, friendly and hospitable people and, delicious food. Istanbul, Turkey’s largest city, is the air gateway into the country although there are direct flight services from many European cities into the capital city of Ankara, western port of Izmir, and the popular southern resort city of Antalya.

A typical travel itinerary to Turkey would naturally include Istanbul, Cappadocia, Pamukkale (Cotton Castles)  and perhaps a week or longer at one of the beautiful resort towns on Turkey’s Aegean Coast, such as Bodrum, Marmaris, Kusadasi, Fethiye and several others that are in the process of being discovered.
