Bridging the continents of Europe and Asia, Turkey is an astonishing amalgamation of east and west, drenched in history and abundant with astounding natural wonders. A culmination of numerous influences such as Byzantine, Greek and Ottoman, this vast and varied portion of historic land has evolved into a richly diverse nation; a sweeping glance at the landscape, laden with relics and ruins of centuries past, evokes images of roman invasions, ancient battlefields and the mythical Trojan War.
Today, Turkey’s unique identity is apparent in the people’s ingrained sense of community and the eclectic, flavoursome cuisine. Istanbul is a transcontinental hub of energy and promise, boasting an impressive selection of cultural sights and lively markets for you to explore; the charming port town of bohemian Bodrum lounges on the Aegean Coast, a treasure trove of ancient wonders and clear blue coastal waters; and the atmosphere of Antalya resonates along cobbled streets and amongst the rush of cascading waterfalls.
A Eurasian blend, Turkey offers the best of both worlds; your only problem is deciding where to begin.
