If you’re travelling with children, head to Antalya where there is plenty of things to keep young minds busy. Head to Aktur Park, which is an amusement park designed for kids and grown ups. Minicity, the outdoor museum, provides a day trip which can help young ones with their history, with mini replicas of Turkey’s most famous landmarks and natural formations. But best of all, there’s miles and miles of wonderful beaches to spend whole days paddling, building sandcastles and running about on.
If you’re interested in the history of the place, Bodrum – the ancient Halicarnassus - is a good place to start. The pretty as a picture town is crowned by the castle and surrounded by coastline, making it an ideal place to explore and relax in. Prepare for some well recommended back alley fish restaurants, a walk around a mosque and while you’re there, take in the Mausoleum, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
If you’re looking for a party town, Marmaris offers you everything and more. From cruises along the coast, to ferries over to Greece, promenades pulsating to the beat of the local clubs and a vibrancy not seen in other areas. This is the ideal place for large parties to let their hair down, but take in the views – Marmaris was the scene for a lot of important episodes in history.
