Traveling in Turkey

By  | 

As a frequent traveler, I continuously look for places to add to my bucket list. I love to travel and seeing new places enriches my soul. I’m not a very historical person, I don’t necessarily need to know all the details, but reading and learning some informative detail helps add up to the excitement and adventure.

Turkey travel

Sometime in June I went on a cruise via Norwegian Jade to celebrate my birthday. One of the ground excursions went to Izmir Turkey. I have definitely enjoyed my short visit and promised to come back again someday. The properties in Turkey were breath taking. For those who love to travel, they would definitely appreciate the scenery in Turkey especially the romantic beaches. I would definitely recommend investing on a property in Turkey.

Turkey Beach

Turkey is well known for its beautiful landscapes. There are quite a handful of ruined castles and empires to check out as well as panoramic battlegrounds to take pictures at and learn historical information from. Turkey also have a wide variety of cuisines that will surely add to an unforgettable experience during one’s stay or holiday. I am not a very picky eater and I don’t mind trying out new dishes. I just want to make sure that my food is well made, clean and of course on the tasty side. I grew up eating Filipino cuisines which is well flavored with spices, which is why I am not a big fan of bland cuisines. I would literally ask for salt and pepper if I have to.

My top five recommended tourist attraction to visit are as follows:

Pamukkale – one of the most beautiful natural wonders of the world I have ever discovered. It’s geological shape and formation started over 14,000 years ago. It is said that the spring water from Pamukkale have therapeutic effects that helps cure certain ailments.

Aspendos Theatre – one of the largest preserved Roman theaters in Turkey that can seat between 15 to 20,000 people. To date it is continuously maintained and preserved without losing much of its original qualities.

Cappadocia Region – well known for its weird shaped natural rock formation that is also referred to as “fairy chimneys”. These chimneys were built from water and as well as wind erosion. This enchanting and unique formation is one of Turkey’s top tourist attractions.

Blue Mosque – one of the most beautiful mosques across the world. The blue mosque was built during the 1600 era and named after the blue tiles decorating its interior. The high ceiling inside the mosque consist of 20,000 blue tiles with different designs / patterns.

Oludeniz Village – one of the most photographed beach on the Mediterranean for its panoramic view. Oludeniz is located south west of the Aegean Sea and is famous for its turquoise shade sandy bay.

Attractions in Turkey

Turkey will always have a place in my heart and someday I hope to own a small property in Turkey so I can easily visit and stay even if just for a short vacation during the summer season. Do you have a place you wish to visit? Have you ever dreamed of visiting Turkey? I would love to hear your input! Feel free to share your escapades and travel bucket list.
