During my last vacations, I had planned luxury turkey holidays, along with my family. Firstly, we flew to Istanbul city. It is one of the most popular and largest cities of Turkey. In fact, Istanbul is renowned tourists' hotspot of the world. The city is home to numerous public attractions scattered in the length and breadth of the city. At Istanbul, we explored the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires. Byzantine is the reminiscence of Roman Empire, Ottoman is an historical site of Turkish Empire. Visiting these two places was absolute delight. The list of next stoppages includes Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Galata Tower, Pera Palace Hotel any more. All aforementioned places are must to visit; you cannot afford to escape them in any case.
Let's, talk about the turkey holiday packages that we had opted to enjoy above mentioned hassle free vacations. We had chosen 07 Nights Best of Turkey travel plan. I would say, it is the best plan covering the all featured locations of Turkey. We arrived at Istanbul; from there we boarded on Bosphorus Cruise. There we took the glare of historic villages, imposing fortresses, along with the Baroque summer palaces of the late Ottoman sultans. Once we were done with the cruise excursion, we headed for the Spice Bazaar, a thrilling riot of colours, sounds, and the rich smell of spices.
During the second day, we visited many historical locations like St. Sophia, Blue mosque and many more. Finally the day ended with a tour for Grand Bazaar. It is local market of Istanbul and ultimate stopover for the shopping lovers. The place is populated with more than 4000 shops selling carpets and kilims, silks, jewellery, ceramics, icons and leather goods.
The third, fourth and fifth days of our Turkey spree were allocated for Istanbul, Ankara and Cappadocia. The day began with lip smacking breakfast. Ankara is an ancient city having more than 3000 years of glorious past. Ankara is known for Mausoleum of Ataturk, known for preserving the remains of Catalhoyuk.
Likewise, Cappadocia is a quite an interesting place to unearth. This is memorable place for spending turkey holidays. The main attractions of the city includes tomb of Mevlana Pamukkale, also known as the 'Cotton Castle'. The place is also known for therapeutic water, limestone pools, channels and stalactites. It was amazing experience to visit all these places.
Remaining days of the trip was allotted for Depart from Izmir to Kusadasi. At the final day of the trip we flew back from Izmir.
