Turkey Holidays

Getting to know Turkey's Mediterranean coast:
Is your idea of the perfect holiday destination long, hot sunny days?
Beautiful sandy beaches? Crystal-clear seas? Friendly people? Lots to see
and do, but no rush to do anything? ‘Buzzing’ nightlife or a quiet evening
with just the buzzing of the cicadas? A touch of spice but with a few
touches of home? If so, then Turkey is the place for you. For Low cost holidays to Turkey visit

A LAND RICH IN HISTORY
‘Where East and West meet' or 'the Crossroads of History' are just two
ways to describe this land. Turkey stretches from the Aegean Sea in the
west into the Middle East and Asia in the east, and it has been used as
a land bridge for hundreds of generations. Persians, Creeks, Romans,
Byzantines and Ottomans all feature strongly in its long history and have
left fascinating legacies for today’s holidaymakers to explore.

NATURAL BEAUTY
Not a history buff? No worries! Turkey has much more to offer. The
Mediterranean region has one of the most varied landscapes in Turkey.
In the west, the 3,000 m (9,843 ft) peaks of the Taurus and Olymbos
mountains form a dramatic backdrop for the resorts, but as you travel
east the mountains retreat inland, leaving a wide and dusty coastal
plain. The mountains offer shelter from the harsh Siberian winds that
cut across inland Turkey during the winter, giving Antalya and its close
surroundings the mildest year-round climate in the country.

Icmeler - one of the best Resorts of Turkey

Icmeler - The Best Place To Enjoy Turkey

Turkey is one of the best holiday destinations in the world. It is also the best place to have a budget holiday.

Icmeler, a beach town located at a distance of less than a ten minutes ride by bus from Marmaris in the south western part of the country is the best resort town in Turkey. I had a great experience at this place. The best things of Icmeler apart from the beautiful sandy beaches are the accommodation and food.

 The road to Icmeler is not very straight. This may reflect the time for you to reach to the resort. Most cheap holiday companies offer coach transfer may take 2 to 3 hours to reach Icmeler. Coach may stop at other resorts and take some breaks. Be prepared and keep your bottle of water or juice for this hot journey. Private transfers could be shorter like 1 and half hour.icmeler turkey
Most of the Icmeler hotels are not old and hence, they have all the modern amenities required by Europeans tourists like me. All hotels are well equipped and have comfortable and clean rooms. Most of the Icmeler hotels include a bar, pool with seating area and restaurant. The breakfast and lunch I had was all English, but the menu includes many continental cuisines too.



All the hotels organize some great night programmes. Late evening entertainment shows by restaurants include celebrity impersonators, robot dances, belly dances and the best that I liked was the waiter’s dance, where all the waiters of the restaurant dance for the guests.

cheap holidays holidaymate
Some Icmeler hotels also have karaoke competitions and discos. The hotel I stayed in had both and I attended both of them and danced too.  

Almost all Icmeler hotels are located near the sea giving you a great view of the Mediterranean. Some hotels even have the famous Turkish baths.


My holiday in Icmeler in 2010 was very wonderful and coupled with the excellent Icmeler hotels, the town is sure to give you a great experience.

The country’s landscape is as varied as it is huge. Twisting cliffs, punctuated by golden beaches and lapped by indigo and turquoise seas, line the Aegean and Mediterranean
Evening near Toprakkale
coasts, their valleys a sea of greenhouses producing, among many other things, some of the most delicious tomatoes in the world. A little way inland, valleys give way to rocky mountains clad in pine forests, their lower slopes filled with orchards that flutter with pink and white blossom in spring. Behind the mountains stretch the vast rolling grasslands of the Anatolian plateau with its fiercely hot summers and bitterly cold winters.
In the southeast, ancient Mesopotamia (the Near East), so famed for its fertility that some claim it to be the original Garden of Eden, lies between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. The government is currently creating a vast network of dams based on the two rivers, to create hydro-electricity and irri­gate the semi-desert to the southeast - great for Turkey, not so good for the desert countries to the south, for whom the rivers are, quite literally, a lifeline, or for the Kurds, who claim the region as an independent state.

In the border territories of the far east, the mountains again soar skywards, culminating in the massive bulk of Mount Ararat, Turkey’s highest peak at 5,137m (16,853ft). This, according to legend, is the last resting place of Noah’s Ark. Beyond this region lie the steppes of Central Asia, from where wave after wave of invaders have arrived to shape Turkey’s people and culture.
