There's a lot to consider when planning your Turkey travel. History buff? Istanbul has some of the world's finest mosques and temples. Beaches? The Turkish Riviera has you covered. Hot springs? Try the thermal pools at Hierapolis, an ancient Roman spa town and UNESCO World Heritage site. Read on for our list of the best things to do in Turkey.
The coastal town of Bodrum is the perfect place to begin a sailing trip around the Turkish coastline. Bodrum nightlife is also the stuff of legend, so be prepared to party until the sun comes up. The best cure for a fuzzy head the next morning? Wash it all away the next day in those warm Aegean waters.
Hop aboard and take in the incredible views of the city as you cruise west from Europe towards Asia, stopping off for a scenic seaside lunch. Feeling the ocean chill? A cup of fiercely strong Turkish tea will warm your cockles on the ride home. Various private operators will tout heavily for your business, but the city's excellent public ferries are the cheapest and best way to go.
Several of Istanbul's most essential sights are easily covered on foot, with incredible city views guaranteed along the way. In a good morning you could tick off the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Basilica Cistern - three absolute Turkey travel 2016 essentials - and still have time to shop the afternoon away in the Grand Bazaar.
Ephesus was once the second city of the Roman Empire. Dating back to the 10th century BC, it was built by the ancient Greeks and famed for its Temple Of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The stunningly preserved ruins are a truly awe-inspiring sight, offering a Turkey travel experience not to be missed.
A UNESCO World Heritage site, Pamukkale's flowing waters over arid ridges and white calcium terraces formed by mineral waters are even more incredible than you've seen in pictures, and must be seen to be believed. This is also the perfect spot to treat yourself to a thermal pool experience and take a soak in the waters renowned for their healing properties.
