What to see in Turkey

Turkey Attractions


Turkey is an action-packed destination with plenty to see and do for the adventurous visitor. The largest city, Istanbul, features some unique and world-class sights such as the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace, not to mention the shopping paradise of the Grand Bazaar, the largest and oldest covered market in the world.

Further afield you can find the ancient attractions of Ephesus, Troy and Augustus' Temple. Turkey is a year-round destination although at its hottest during the peak summer month of July and August (don't forget the sun block!).

Getting around the country is a simple of matter of hoping on a short-haul flight or scheduled bus service while in Istanbul you can negotiate the services of a taxi driver.
