Turkey is one of the countries worth a visit or two. However, there are so many things to do and see in Turkey, that you need to inform yourself very well before your trip, in order to come up with a reasonable bucket list. This article will give you a few ideas of cool things to do in Turkey.
First of all, if you go to Kusadasi, you must visit the ancient city of Ephesus. The buildings and the infrastructure are unbelievably well preserved, so you’ll have a chance to see how people lived in those times. While there, you can go to visit the ancient Troy, because it isn’t very far away. However, Ephesus is way more impressive, so you may want to use your time for doing other things.
Pamukkale is another must-see. It’s a one day trip from Kusadasi, and there are many travel agents who offer this tour. If you don’t want to be bothered with driving, take one of these trips.
The cotton-like mountain and the thermal waters are something worth experiencing at least once in a lifetime in a Porsche rental.
As a matter of fact, the entire west coast of Turkey is worth a visit. All seaside resorts are modern and cool, with fancy hotels and aqua parks, with good food and entertainment. The locals are welcoming, always willing to go the extra mile to make you feel pampered and spoiled.
If you prefer southern Turkey, you should know that you’ll find countless all inclusive resorts where you can have a great time relaxing and having fun on the beach.
However, there are also lots of things to see in this region of Turkey. For instance, walking along the Sakklikent Gorge is the perfect experience for a hot summer day, or driving a convertible luxury vehicle.
You’ll walk through shallow water for a few miles, and you’ll have the chance to take some breathtaking photos. This is a one day trip from Fethiye. Speaking of Fethiye, while there, you should go to the Blue Lagoon beach in Oludeniz, where you can rent a kayak or a pedal boat and have some fun on the deep blue water.
Paragliding is one of the coolest things to do in southern Turkey. There are many service providers offering this activity. It isn’t cheap, but it’s well worth the money. You’ll get on top of Babadag mountain by car, and then you’ll glide over mountains and hills to land right on the beach.
In the same price range with the paragliding, you can rent a small motorboat for one full day. The boat company will teach you how to sail and what to do in case of trouble.
They will also give you a map with the course you’ll need to follow on water. You’ll be able to anchor your boat on secluded beaches, in order to spend some time alone, far away from the usual crowds.
The list could go on, as Turkey is a huge country. Whatever you choose to do, chances are you’re going to fall in love with the places, so you’ll be willing to come back for more.
