Turkey has become increasingly popular, and now has over 17 million visitors each year. It is renowned for its history, hospitality, value for money, landscapes, clear seas and sandy beaches.
Turkey has many more claims to fame, including being home to 2 of the 7 wonders of the ancient world, Artemis and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus.
All seven of the churches of revelation are located there, some still standing. Historical ruins are scattered everywhere and were inhabited by giants such as the Hittites, Phrygians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans, to name but a few.
It is the birthplace of historic legends such as Homer, King Midas, Herodotus, St. Paul the Apostle, and St Nicolas – or Santa, as he is known today. The famous battle of Troy was fought there; Noah’s Ark is thought to lie there. The list goes on and on.
Turkey is the only country in the world to span two continents, which fits its personality perfectly. Although now developing into a modern country with its sight set on Europe, it retains a charming culture reminiscent of times gone by. Cosmopolitan resorts with designer nightlife compete against unspoiled treasures without a hotel in sight. Whatever you are looking for in a holiday, in Turkey you will be sure to find it.
The Turquoise coast, as it is also known, is modern, clean and welcoming and seems strangely familiar to first time visitors. It is famed for its fine sand beaches, warm waters and good weather. The cuisine leans toward a European palate, offers a wide and varied range, and is generally excellent quality.
Fethiye, “the land of lights”, is a busy town with an abundance of shops, restaurants, bars and a beautiful harbor. Fethiye and the surrounding area offer everything for holidaymakers of all ages. The scenery is breathtaking, with the mountains tumbling into the beautiful turquoise sea against a backdrop of bright blue skies, and throughout the winter and spring you will see snow-capped mountains in the distance.
