"So much to explore!" Turkey by tommix

Turkey Travel Guide: 24,855 reviews and 71,789 photos

Are you going to Turkey? Where? Izmir or Antalya? - before my trip to Turkey I heard this kind of question so many times. But the Turkey it's not only the seaside and the beaches. It's a so huge, in big part mountain country, with so much to explore! From armenian and gregorian churches in the east, beautiful Seljuk monuments in the center to captivating city of Istanbul in the west...
Only one advice - take your time! :)

As an apetizer you can look at my pages on Ishan or Dörtkilise.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:beauty and diversity of country, relatively cheap prices, and great cuisine!
  • Cons:distances and crazy drivers!
  • In a nutshell:Gorgeous beaches, monuments, landscapes - everybody can find here something for himself!

    Indeed, there is so much to explore in this magical land - now am at a loss where to go myself. The town of Divirigi looks enchanting, and must be worth a visit. Thanks, Tomasz.
