The ease with which one can reach Turkey is remarkable, with daily flights to and from almost every UK airport into all the main towns of Turkey. In Istanbul, at the crossroads of Asia and Europe, the familiar and the exotic sit comfortably side by side, but travel further east and the culture and atmosphere become more obviously Central Asian.
Turkey is a vast and diverse country with vibrant cities, historical sites, mile upon mile of pretty coastline plus incredible scenery ranging from mountains and fertile plains to the magical landscapes of Cappadocia. Delicious food, warm, welcoming people and an efficient infrastructure make travelling around Turkey effortless.
There are two distinct sides to Turkey. There is the southern coastline crammed with cheap hotels catering to mass package tours and cheap flights, and then there is the rest of the country. We can help you choose the south coast based hotels with care. Admittedly there are points where the two meet, but for the most part it is possible to travel around Turkey without encountering crowds of foreigners.
The further east you move, the more the western influence declines. Just south of Georgia are wild uninhabited valleys where spring flowers are in abundance, pretty Orthodox churches have stood for hundreds of years and bears are a common sight. Few people have ventured that far. Mardin, a hilltop city in the east, is famous for its Artuqid architecture consisting of heavily decorated buildings which cascade down from the hilltop in layers.
