As prices in traditional holiday resorts such as Spain and France have rocketed since the introduction of the Euro, Turkey has quietly cashed in and increased its visitor numbers year on year. Today Turkey is one of the most rapidly growing tourist destinations in Europe, attracting nearly 30 million tourist visitors in 2010.
Prices are not the only reason that tourists are turning their attentions to Turkey. The cuisine, climate and cultural and historical places of interest offer something a little different to those holidaymakers looking for more than just a beach vacation. Having said that Turkey has some of the finest sandy beaches in Europe, and in the south the climate compares favourably with much of Spain.
The capital of Turkey is Istanbul, a vibrant city now offering everything from modern designer shops to traditional street markets and bazaars.
Must see in Istanbul : The Blue Mosque, The Grand Bazaar and The Topkapi Palace.
Getting Around In Turkey
Driving in Turkey is not recommended in Istanbul due to the volume of traffic. The public transportation system in Istanbul is very good, so it is better to use public transport or a taxi. The trams are a cheap way of getting around Istanbul, but can be hot and crowded.
If you are visiting one of the Turkish beach resorts such as Dalaman, Bodrum or Antalya, there are plenty of vehicle rental companies offering internet car hire booking. To compare car hire Turkey please visit the Blue Valley Car Hire website.
