The Galata Bridge, Istanbul, Turkey

Turkey has fast become a very popular tourist destination. Its location is quite unique, sharing borders with Europe, Asia, and the Middle East – a total of eight countries. Three major bodies of water are accessible from Turkey: the Black Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Aegean Sea. You can just imagine the possibilities that a visit to Turkey offers!

Perhaps the most popular destination in Turkey is Istanbul, which is the center of most everything. It was actually the seat of the Byzantine Empire and the city has retained a lot of its heritage while at the same time evolving with time. From the ancient to the modern, you can get a taste of everything in Istanbul.

Antalya is another popular destination in Turkey. Turquoise blue waters and wide stretches of sandy beaches – that’s what makes people flock to Antalya. It used to be a small town but the modern Antalya is home to five star resorts and is also flanked by mountains which are perfect for skiing.

If yachting is your thing, then Bodrum is your Turkish destination. Bodrum is a port in the Muğla Province, facing the Greek island of Kos, and is renowned for yachting. More than that, the ancient site of the Mausoleum of Mausolus, which is one of the wonders of the ancient world. Bodrum is also home to the Museum of Underwater Archaeology.

Kemer is a seaside town, which is steeped in history. Leisurely strolls along the town’s old streets, visits to archeological ruins, walks in the forest, and fun at the beach – all these await you in Kemer.

This is just a sampling of what Turkey has to offer. If you take a closer look, you will most likely find more to your liking.
