Why holiday in Turkey?

Turkey is a huge and enigmatic place, is it European? Arab? Asian? Depends where you are, but what is clear that this is a country dotted with fantastic sights and ancient artefacts and inhabited by a very welcoming people. Flowers seem to burst from every crevice, the Turkish sun shines endlessly in the summertime, domestic transport works well and scenery ranges from dull to mind-boggling, beaches are pretty good, prices are low and shopping is superb, especially in Istanbul.

The Turkish language is a tricky Asiatic tongue and many locals don’t speak English so communication can be a problem outside resort areas.
Furthermore, small ancient sites of big interest such as Ephesus, cannot comfortably absorb the bleating herds of package tourists.
