Cheap Turkey Holidays.
Turkeys most popular tourist areas are found on the Mediterranean coast to the south and the Aegean coast to the west, and between them they cover over 5000 miles. With over 10,000 years of history to discover while you are there, there is never a dull moment on holidays in Turkey. Turkey is spread over two continents with the blend of east meeting west creating the perfect holiday destination. Turkey is more predominately a summer destination as the winter months can be extremely cool, however the eastern Antalya region is quite pleasant all year round making it the perfect winter destination.
Holidays in Turkey offer varied accommodation from very basic self catering apartments to luxury all inclusive resorts. You really do get what you pay for here and cheap Turkey holidays can sometimes be a little bit basic, so be warned!
Bodrum and Izmir are the two regions to be found along the Aegean coast. Izmir's most fashionable resort has to be Kusadasi. It is a firm favourite with the party crowd and the nightlife here is lively and fun. For a little culture whilst on holidays to this region then a visit to one of the 253 archaeological sites in the area, in particular the world famous ruined city of Ephesus is an absolute must.
The nearby Bodrum region has a fantastic selection of resorts to choose from and Gumbet and Bodrum itself offer clean sandy beaches, great shopping and a nightlife that ranges from good old family fun to full on party time. Altinkum is the perfect family resort with beautiful beaches and plenty of evening entertainment without being too over the top. The town of Turgutreis has beautiful beaches and stunning scenery plus some of the most picturesque sunsets you will ever see on cheap Turkey holidays.
Along the Mediterranean coast you will find the bustling resort of Marmaris where the young crowd often flock to party their nights away. The charming resorts of Hisaronu and Olu Deniz are surrounded by pine clad mountains and have wonderful powdery soft sands that the whole family can enjoy.
Finally the Antalya region is nicknamed the Turkish Riviera and provides 300 days of sunshine a year making it popular during the winter months too. This region has many charming resorts to choose from including Lara Beach, Belek, Antalya and Side, all with wonderful clear waters and family friendly golden sandy beaches.
Turkey still has its own currency, although it is tentatively flirting with the euro, meaning cheap Turkey holidays offer great value for your money.
