A vibrant country full of diverse cultures, beliefs, nature and history, Turkey bridges the continents of Europe and Asia. Due to its location, surrounded by the sea on three sides, Turkey has always been at the center of great trade, silk and spice routes. Famous for its carpets, hammam and bazaars, Turney offers great destinations like Istanbul, Cappadocia and Pamukkale, home to the best hot springs in the world. No trip to Turkey is complete without sampling its sweet treats like Turkish delights and baklava.
The summer months are very hot, so great for lounging by the sea. However, in April, May, September and October temperatures become pleasantly warm, with temperatures ranging from 13°C to 25°C (55°F – 74°F), perfect for sightseeing. From November to March Turkey can get quite cold, but this can be the perfect time for visiting certain attractions. In winter the pools of Pamukkale, some of the best hot springs you are likely to see, are spectacular.
