Description

Turkey has long been a crossroads of faiths and cultures, and its historical importance cannot be overstated. If you can only ever visit one city on the planet, Istanbul would be a good choice. The Middle Ages officially ended when the Ottoman Turks conquered Constantinople in 1453, turning it into modern-day Istanbul. A romantic city straddling both Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait, ... read more
Istanbul is filled with unimaginable highlights: the Hagia Sophia (a church-cum-mosque that was, for 1000 years, the largest enclosed space in the world) and the Justinian underground cistern, dating to 532. Balance history with relaxation on the Aegean coast, where beachside resorts and gulet sailboats sit alongside ancient ruins. Eastern Turkey is as different as it gets; mountains and deserts house a more conservative culture where folks still plow fields with oxen. Turkish cuisine -- kebab, döner and, of course, Turkish coffee -- is popular around the globe for good reason, but local restaurants serve up outstanding regional cuisine. Turkish people are known for their friendliness, and the warm welcome you'll receive at hotels, guesthouses and the ever-present pansiyon reflect this.
