Tips for Booking Holidays to Turkey


If you are looking for cheap holidays the sun, Turkey is one of the best destinations for you. Turkey has many great beaches that will surely bring you and your loved ones a relaxing experience. 


Beaches in Turkey


Antalya, on the Mediterranean coast, is called the Turkish Riviera. Antalya itself is a picturesque city, but most holidaymakers head to the nearby beaches. The Antalya coastline has many of the most popular beach resorts in Turkey including one of the best: Alanya. Alanya is known for its sandy beaches, good hotels, restaurants, nightlife and shopping. There are several blue flag beaches around Alanya and all beaches are great for swimming and sunbathing.


Bodrum is another good option for a beach holiday. Known for its small pretty coves and nice hotels, Bodrum is perfect if you want to get away from the busier beaches around Alanya. If you stay in Bodrum, spend a day on a boat trip along this scenic coast.


Things to Do in Turkey


Make sure to try Turkish cuisine while on holiday in Turkey. Turkish food uses natural and local ingredients and combines different flavours from Asia, the Middle East and the Mediterranean Europe. Start your meal with meze (a tray or a plate that contains a variety of starter dishes: ideal for sharing with a group of friends). Follow the starter with fish or meat that is served with salad, bread and rice. Lamb meat is popular in Turkey, but when you are by the sea, enjoy the fresh seafood and try grilled fish, calamari or mussels.


Most visitors to Turkey go shopping at least a few times, and it is hard to avoid good shops especially around the tourist spots. You can buy some great souvenirs and make good deals on leather, jewellery and handicrafts. If you shop at market stalls, remember that haggling is a part of the shopping experience.


If you want to get away to Turkey, you can easily find affordable beach packages. With so many good destinations to choose from, it is important to plan your trip in advance. The most popular times to travel to Turkey include the Christmas and New Year period and other school holidays. Prices for holidays always rise during the peak season. If you can travel outside the peak season, and if you plan your timing well in advance, you can find very affordable two-week holidays in many of Turkey's popular destinations in the sun.
