Family Friendly Holidays in Turkey
Everyone wants to travel to unique destinations, but not many people can afford these types of adventures. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a unique location that was also affordable? If this is what you’re looking for, then you should strongly consider looking into Turkey holidays.
When most people think of Turkey, they think of a country that separates Europe and Asia. Some people even think of the movie “Midnight Express,” which is silly considering the movie is several decades old and offers no good examples of Turkey today.
If you look into cheap holidays to Turkey, then you will see that this is a safe, beautiful and attraction-rich country with friendly people. Turkey’s strong regional economy makes it the most appealing location in the East. The biggest benefit to travelling to Turkey is that not many other travellers are aware of what is being offered. Therefore, the restaurants, attractions, and beaches are rarely crowded.
If you travel to Turkey with family, then it’s highly recommended that you visit one of the local beaches first. Almost every beach in Turkey is hidden and beautiful. In most cases, you might see one or two other people on the beach. If you visit one of the more popular beaches, you still won’t have to deal with large crowds, and you will have an opportunity to dine at a waterfront restaurant. The beast beaches in Turkey are Ovabuku, Butterfly Valley, Amos, Gemiler, Cirali, Kaputas, Hisaronu Bay, Ortakent, Gunluklu, and Kabak.
If you’re not a beach person, don’t worry. There’s still a lot to do and see in Turkey. Many of the attractions are historical in nature, but your kids are still likely to enjoy them. That’s because of their grandiose size and the mystery that surrounds them. Let’s take a look at a few of the most popular attractions in Turkey. This way you can plan your trip accordingly.
Blue Mosque, Sultan Ahmet Camii
This is known as one of the most beautiful mosque in the world, which should come as no surprise considering there are 260 windows that allow the sun to shine on the blue-tile interior. It’s quite a sight, but if you really want the whole family to enjoy it, then consider visiting during one of the light and sound shows in the summer.
It’s not often that an entire region is known as an attraction, but that’s the case with the Cappadocia Region. Some people look into cheap holidays to Turkey just to visit this area. The Cappadocia Region is known as a geological wonder, and it has been around for 60 million years. There is a high plateau that reaches 3,270 feet. The plateau was formed by two volcanic eruptions followed by millions of years of wind and rain. You can also find more than 600 rock-cut churches from the 4th to 11th Centuries. In many of these churches, the walls are decorated to reflect scenes from the bible.
Everyone will enjoy visiting this ancient city from 12th Century BC. At its peak during the Roman Empire, Ephesus had a population of 250,000 people. It was also the site of the Temple of Artemis and one of the Seven Churches of Revelation. Today you will only find a fraction of what used to be, but that’s what makes this city so mysterious. You can also enjoy the Odeon Celsus Library and the Great Theater.
The above beach and attraction recommendations will allow you to enjoy your cheap holiday to Turkey. If you would like to add to your itinerary, then consider Haghia Sophia Church Museum and Pamukkale Cotton Castle.
