5 reasons to travel to Turkey

Trips to Turkey are heavily promoted by tour operators. The country has a lot of pluses and there's pretty much something for everyone.

Come and discover a destination that has it all.

The advantage of visiting Turkey is that it has something for all tastes and budgets. Whether you're backpacking or on a guided tour, a party animal or retiree, single or on honeymoon, Turkey is a good choice.

For starters, you can stroll though markets and bargain away with Turkish sellers.

Turkey is a country full of bazaars and markets. There are several in all the towns and they're perfect for meandering around. Haggling is almost a national pastime!

Jump from one continent to the other

In Istanbul, you can literally step from one continent to the other. But take care...the border is in the middle of the Bosphorus River, so perhaps best to do it on a ferry.

Eat delicious food

Turkish cuisine is fusion food. Over time, recipes from the Maghreb have been blended with those from Cyprus, Syria, Egypt amongst others. As a result the food is divine, Turkish Delight being a national treasure.

Discover a unique culture

It's hard to define what awaits during a trip to Turkey. Part European, part Asian, it's culturally neither one nor the other. Turkey stands alone - it has its own, special flavor.
