Turkey is a hugely popular tourist destination, for many good reasons.  What more does the average holidaymaker ask for other than sun, sand, sea, and relaxation – as well as a variety of sports activities and the availability of day trips to fascinating historical sites.  Millions of British tourists and Europeans visit Turkey each year.


The resort areas of Bodrum, Kusadasi and Antalya are particular favourites among Europeans.  The capital city, Ankara, is the second largest city after Istanbul, and both cities offer visitors an array of fascinating sights and attractions.


Before booking your trip to Turkey, always pay a visit to the Foreign Office website to review their important and updated travel advice and information as part of their ‘Know Before You Go’ campaign.  In particular, check to see whether any advisories against travel to any specific areas of Turkey are currently in effect.
