TURKEY Tourism

The history of Turkey is akin to a Turkish meal: long and full of different flavours. The result is a country of great diversity that is entirely satisfying to visitors. Sun and sea may be the drawcards, but the landscape rewards with rivers perfect for rafting, quiet villages where fig trees droop over stone walls and a rugged mountain interior peaking at biblical Mt Ararat. That tasty history has left a legacy of clifftop castles, palaces and caravanserais where you can almost still hear the camels bellowing. And tradition coexists with modernity, as watermelon vendors peddle in traffic jams, mobile phones ring in valued vaulted bazaars scented with saffron and traditional Turkish nomadic hospitality beckons to you to come and join the feast.
