Most tourists begin their journey into Turkey at Istanbul, the largest transcontinental city. The country’s economic and cultural hub is also the home of the Blue Mosque, which features 260 stained glass windows and 20,000 handmade ceramic tiles. Another beautiful structure to visit is the Hagia Sophia. The structure was formerly a Greek Orthodox church and a mosque, but is now a museum, and has served as an inspiration for several other Ottoman mosques.

Old and new Istanbul meet at the Galata Bridge, a perfect spot to snap a photo and admire the sunset. To purchase some Turkish goods, head to the Great Bazaar, with approximately 5,000 stalls selling items such as carpets and spices.

Another territory that bears roots in Asia and Europe is Canakkale. Most visitors would head for the UNESCO World Heritage site at Troia, stroll around the area and the museum in order to gain a better understanding of the country’s history. While you’re in Canakkale, be sure to check out the five-storey Ottoman Clock Tower near the harbour. You can get to Canakkale easily via bus or plane from Istanbul. Once there, you can go on foot as attractions are all of walking distance to each other.

Antalya is also a famous tourist destination in Turkey, thanks to the wonderful lodging and entertainment options available. Visit the old city of Kaleici, which features old-world cobbled streets and architecture. Alternatively, you could sit by the coast and enjoy a picturesque view of the Mediterranean Sea. The locals of Antalya are very warm and welcoming, which is also one of the reasons why visitors return time and again to this beautiful city.

Izmir is worth a visit as well. Be awed by the Izmir Clock Tower, standing proud in Konak Square, or head to Izmir Asansor for a stunning view of the Izmir skyline. Shoppers can head to the Kemeralti Market: sieve out good buys of leather, pottery and utensils to take home. After a long day, enjoy a soak in a traditional Turkish bath at Sifali Lux Haman.

The Turkish capital of Ankara is a wonder on its own. Geographically larger than almost every city in the United States, Ankara stands at the centre of Turkey’s railway and highway network. The city gives off a youthful vibe, as it’s filled with retail stores, cafes and restaurants. Additionally, you should tour the Old Quarters and savour the local street food.
