In recent years, Turkey has soared in popularity as a holiday destination and it is hardly surprising when you look at what it has to offer. From ancient cities to stunning coastlines, culture to gastronomy; you’ll be anything but bored when holidaying in Turkey.

So, if you’re still struggling to decide on your holiday destination, maybe one of these will be the deciding reason to pick Turkey for 2013.


When the sky is a steely shade of grey and the sun simply refuses to shine, many of us would pay an arm and a leg to be magically transported to a land where it’s hot all summer and there’s nothing but blue up above.

If you’re looking for somewhere with guaranteed good weather you can’t get much better than the Turkish Riviera. Turkey’s southern position makes it ideal for both summer and winter breaks, with package holidays to Turkey during July and August almost guaranteeing uninterrupted sunshine.

Though topping up the tan is a big consideration, having a beautiful backdrop to your day at the beach is equally as important – and Turkey doesn’t disappoint. The rugged coastline of the Turkish Riviera is dotted with secluded coves, uninhabited islands and idyllic beaches just waiting to be discovered.

If you like to indulge in good food during your annual getaway, then there can be no better reason to pick Turkey than its spectacular cuisine. The vast array of salads, dips, breads, stews and grilled meats are a treat for carnivores and vegetarians alike.

From the Ancient Persians to the Trojans, Greeks and Ottomans, Turkey has been home to, and played a part in, some of the greatest civilisations of all time. Relics from its ancient past dot the landscape, making ideal day trips from your beachside resort.
