Turkey - Ross French - September 7, 2013

Visit Turkey

Turkey is becoming increasingly popular as a tourist destination, but not everyone is convinced…yet. Here we intend to give you a rundown of the very best reasons to holiday in this fascinating country. By the end of it, there is a good chance you will be ready to book your trip to visit turkey.

5 Reasons to Visit Turkey

1. Beaches

With a vast coastline, there is plenty of opportunities to enjoy the fun by the sea in Turkey. Different areas of the country have their vibes, but this only adds to the charm. In the north, you can enjoy visiting resorts on the Black Sea, while in the south there is the Aegean and Mediterranean.

These latter regions benefit from sunshine for a large part of the year, with Antalya and Bodrum particularly popular among tourists. Whether you want to get a tan, build a sandcastle, or enjoy some watersports. Visit Turkey, It has a beach for you.

2. History

You cannot go anywhere in Turkey without stumbling across a historical monument. In fact, the country is home to more archaeological sites than anywhere else in the world. Visit Turkey, Head to Ephesus where the Temple of Artemis was constructed, the city of Troy – famous for its war, and the stunning cave church of St Peter.

More recent history can also be found throughout the country and especially in Istanbul. Here, you will find the likes of the Topkapi and Dolmabahce palaces and the Galata Tower, dating back to 1348.

3. Culture

Turkey is a fascinating mix of different cultures and religions that all add something to the whole. This means that music, dancing, and folklore varies throughout the regions, with influences from all over.

This has also led to some amazing architecture on show. Don’t miss the Blue Mosque, named for the color of the tiles lining the walls inside, and its neighbor, the magnificent Aya Sofya. This structure has a huge freestanding down and amazing mosaics depicting figures from Christianity.

4. Food

There are many places in the world where food is linked to the culture and eaten with gusto, but nowhere quite as much as Turkey. It has taken the best parts from Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines and made them it’s own.

The most amazing kebabs come from the southeastern part of the country and bear no resemblance to those you eat after a drunken night out. Wonderful assortments of meze are presented to diners prior to the main course, and seafood plays a huge role in Turkey’s food chain.

Be sure to try a balik ekmek or fish sandwich while in Istanbul. Fish does not get any fresher than this. Once caught they are grilled right by the water, popped between some bread and served hot to tourists and locals alike.

Another assault on the senses is a walk through the spice bazaar, where mounds of rose and pale yellow cubes of Turkish delight is piled high. Try before you buy and never purchase the packaged stuff as the fresh is far more delicious.

5. Value for money

Turkey is a relatively cheap destination, and those converting pounds into Turkish lira will find that they get a good exchange rate. You can end up spending a lot of money if you want to buy expensive rugs and souvenirs, which are tempting, but many everyday items are more reasonable.

3 Best Things about Phuket, Thailand

Southeast Asia, Thailand - Ross French - February 15, 2012

Phuket Holidays

Phuket is an island province located 530 miles south of Bangkok off the Andaman Sea on the west coast of Thailand. The city is a lively one with a well-deserved reputation as one of the party capitals of Asia. Also, nature lovers will enjoy a trip to the island’s many beaches and waterfalls. The island is connected to mainland Thailand by two bridges. It is located roughly midway between Bangkok and Singapore. The local airport, Phuket International Airport, receives visitors from as far away as Europe.

3 Best Things about Phuket holidays

Party Scene

The party scene for the Phuket holidays is impressive. The most energetic place to party on the island is Patong Beach. Patong has an impressive number of bars, clubs, discos, and nightclubs. The nightclubs with dance floors here is something not often seen in Thailand. Its stores and restaurants stay open late, as well. A variety of massage parlors and spas of all types are also available. The entire party area can be covered on foot, although there are plenty of transportation options available. Karon Beach is a little more laid back than Patong, perfect for those looking for a little less crazy, quieter place to party. The capital of Phuket City is more local-oriented and a good destination for those who want to get away from the tourist scene.

Beaches

The beaches in Phuket are impressive with their white sand and clear water. Many also take advantage of the premier opportunities to water ski, sail and snorkel available here. Patong is also a beach destination and is the largest beach resort on the island. The beach itself is about two miles long. Kata Beach is a good destination for those who want more of a family feel. That beach is lined with palm trees and has a nightlife that is a little more laid back. Kamala Beach is even more laid back and can even be deserted at times, even during times when the other beaches are packed. Art enthusiasts will surely enjoy a visit to Karon Beach, as an art community is located near the beach.

Waterfalls

Water enthusiasts will also enjoy a visit to the many waterfalls that are available throughout the island. The waterfalls are even more impressive late in the rainy season, which generally runs from May until October. Conversely, some waterfalls are essentially non-existent during the dry season. The waterfalls are generally much less crowded than the beaches, allowing for a more relaxing setting to enjoy a natural setting. Two of the best waterfalls are in Khao Phra Thaeo National Park. Bang Pae is Phuket’s largest waterfall and is about a 10-minute walk from the parking lot. Ton Sai makes up for its lack of size with a very scenic setting. Another beautiful waterfall in Kathu. Its forest setting only adds to this waterfall’s charm.
