Holidays To Turkey

What country gave the world cherries, modern agriculture and epic poems about the Trojan War (Homer’s Iliad should ring a bell)—not to mention Santa Claus?

Yep, Turkey is kind of a big deal, but they’re not bragging. In fact, along with thousands of years of world history and some of the most exotic shopping on the planet, you’ll find super friendly locals who can’t wait to share all the fun of a Turkey holiday.

Things to Do in Turkey

Start at the beginning (or at least close to it) with Istanbul packages. Since 537 AD, the Hagia Sophia has served as a cathedral, mosque and now a museum; head to the wishing column to use its supernatural powers for good (or evil). Want to “capital”-ise on your holiday instead? Turkey packages in Ankara are chockablock with more recent history, from the tomb of the hero of the Turkish War of Independence to the modern Kocatepe Mosque.

Outdoor explorers should look for a Turkey package deal in fairy-tale-like Cappadocia. The main attraction of this central region is Goreme National Park, with its whimsical landscape of mushrooms and chimneys carved out of volcanic rock over thousands of years. Tour the park and underground towns, then float over the landscape in a hot air balloon. That’s what we call a storybook ending.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar is the undisputed champion of shopping in Turkey, whether you’re looking for evil eye beads, a long-necked lute for your next jam session or everlasting enlightenment (though beware of vendors selling that last one!). Ankara is no slacker either; you’ll find the best bargains on Turkish carpets, fabrics and copper in the markets of the capital. Hope you’ve got a big boot to stash all your packages—snag one from Wotif’s car hire in Istanbul deals!

Looking for a little Turkish delight? Luckily for you, this sweet treat is everywhere. In fact, you’ll find all kinds of delights on holidays in Turkey, from apple tea to menemen (spiced scrambled eggs) to mincemeat pizza. From the western coast to the eastern mountains, you can get adventurous with a little tripe soup from a street vendor, chow down on cheese pies in a bakery or go all-out with kebabs covered in butter and yogurt—with a side of rice pilav of course.

Istanbul has the nightlife you’d expect from the country’s largest city, and you definitely can’t go wrong dancing the night away under the lights of the Bosphorus Bridge. But there is another town waiting to impress you: Turkey holidays in Izmir are as refreshing as an Aegean Sea breeze. Ever since Mark Antony and Cleopatra got together here in 41 BC, this famously free-wheeling city has been the country’s laid-back beach destination. Raise your drinks up and let your hair down, or mousse it up, Jersey Shore style—no judgments here.

What’s Next?

It may be the place where the legendary Trojan Wars happened, but you won’t need a wooden horse to get into Turkey these days. Wotif’s awesome selection of hotels and airfares will leave you enough lira to make your holiday shine more brightly than Helen of Troy.
