Cappadoccia

This strange land with moon-like landscape, underground cities, cave churches and houses carved into rocks is really an otherworldly experience. With a long history and traditions, people come to explore the strange houses (some which you can even stay in), and fly with air-balloons above the peaks. There is an annual hot-balloon festival in Cappadoccia, but you can experience it throughout the whole year.

Istanbul

Istanbul is a city with a very unique location. Half of the city is situated in Europe, while the other half in Asia – this means that you can visit two continents in one and the same day! It is divided by the Bosphorus Strait, which is perfect for an Istanbul dinner cruise.

Ephesus

In Ephesus you will find some of the oldest ruins of a Roman city in the world, and on top of it all it is very well preserved – with a library, a brothel, homes, baths and a theater, it is fascinating to get such an insightful glimpse into the Roman past.

Pamukkale

Sometimes nicknamed “the cotton castle”, this white place with travertines surrounding cascading shallow pools of thermal water is one of the most famous places in Turkey.

Some are impressed, others are disappointed – often it has to do with what time during the year you visit.

Alacati

With its quaint Greek architecture and its friendly people, this village in the Central Aegean is one of the prettiest villages in the country – and it has some of the best wind surfing!

Ölüdeniz

The Blue lagoon, located in Ölüdeniz, is probably the most famous beach in Turkey – and for a good reason.

Surrounded by beautiful nature, the crystal clear water and the relaxed atmosphere are the three key ingredients that make the perfect beach destination, and this place has all three.
