What can I expect from Turkey?

Turkey is such a huge country that it is very difficult to summarise it in a few lines. Do you want dreamy beaches? Historic ruins? Vibrant cities? Incredible food? Generous and extremely welcoming people? Turkey has it all!

Things to See and Do in Turkey

Watch the paragliders take off at the top of the mountain in Ölüdeniz.
stroll around the quaint town of Alaçati
get lost in the Bazaar in Izmir
Go for a walk and a swim at Patara beach.
Go back in history at the ancient city of Troy and see the famous horse!
Visit the ruins of Ephesus, including the temple of Artemis!
Take in the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosques in Istanbul.
Check out the Gaziantep Zeugma Mosaic Museum.
Watch the hot air balloons take off at sunrise in Cappadocia.
Be in awe in front of the natural wonder of Pamukkale.
Watch the statues loom out of the dark at sunrise at Mt Nemrut.
Take a public taxi boat from Dalyan to Iztuzu Beach and admire the Lycian Tombs - if you are lucky you might even spot some turtles on the way!

Suggested daily budget – 20-30 EUR – Accomodation, transportation, food and entertainement included. Transportation to get to the country not included. (Note: This is a suggested budget assuming you’re staying in a hostel, eating out a little, cooking most of your meals, and using local transportation. You can of course always lower this number. However, if you stay in fancier accommodation or eat out more often, expect this to be higher!)
