Places to Go in Turkey

Turkey is a mesmerizing transcontinental country that has its more substantial portion in Western Asia and a smaller portion in Southeast Europe. It is a land that never fails to astonish you with its rich cultural heritage and exciting history that’s full of fascinating tales of conquests by powerful kingdoms, such as the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires. In addition to the historical places, the country also gives you the chance to witness its beautiful natural features. You can even get to the country’s enchanting coastal cities during your holiday, where you’ll have the pleasure of unwinding on beautiful beaches.

 

Winter from November to February is chilly and rainy in this country, but you can also enjoy occasional sunny days at certain places. You can also enjoy your Turkey holidays with cheaper accommodations offered by the hotels, as this is a low season in this part of the world. Spring from March to mid-June is a high season with pleasant climatic conditions. The period from mid-June to mid-September is summer in Turkey. In this season, the coastal cities are visited by tourists in large numbers, but you can find some excellent bargains on hotel accommodations in certain places like Istanbul. Autumn from mid-September to October is another peak tourist season of Turkey.
