In Turkiye you can be in two continents at the same time, hit the beach, climb a mountain, take a hot air balloon ride, stay in a tree house and visit historical sites that are thousands of years old.
Turkey is truly east meets west, bridging the culture gap between Europe and Asia with mosques and bustling bazaars in cosmopolitan cities with cobblestone streets. Begin in Istanbul where the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar showcase the city's unique blend of Byzantine and Ottoman heritage. Head to the coastal town of Olympos known for its ancient ruins and a serene beach, providing a perfect balance of history and relaxation (and unique accommodations).
The pristine Turkish Riviera is popular for sailing trips, with crystal-clear waters, secluded coves and sites like the Sunken City of Kekova. Explore the surreal landscapes of Cappadocia with its fairy-tale-like chimneys, cave dwellings and awe-inspiring sunrise balloon rides. Indulge in Turkish cuisine from aromatic kebabs to delectable baklava, and immerse yourself in the warm hospitality of the locals who are almost guaranteed to ask you to join them for apple tea.
