Five destinations in Turkey with unforgettable experiences

Do you want to treat the insatiable globetrotter in you with a comprehensive travel itinerary, have a romantic getaway or plan a beach holiday? Turkey is the spot for you. 

Turkey is a popular travel destination, and rightfully so. After all, the country has so much to offer, which is why it is among one of the most sought-after luxury holiday destinations. Turkey is well suited for people looking for different things, whether you want to dip in the ocean or explore historical sites – you get it all in Turkey. 

Due to the diverse experiences one can have in the country, Turkey is also becoming one of the top luxury honeymoon locations. On top of that, it has made a name for itself among the most popular luxury beach holiday destinations. Simply put, Turkey has endless experiences for travellers coming from far and wide. To inspire your interest in travelling to Turkey, here are a few divine experiences you can try when in Turkey. 

Whirling Dervishes at Galata Mevlevihanesi or Hodjapasha

If you enjoy observing diverse cultural acts, you will love looking at the whirling dervishes in Turkey. It is a dance form of sorts, but it’s an act of worship for Turkish Muslims. It’s a traditional practice that dates back to the 13th century, in which people clad in white robes move in circles with their hands stretched out to the sides (one facing upwards and the other downwards).

It is believed that when a person whirls repeatedly, it signifies the idea of losing oneself entirely and submitting to God. In all honesty, witnessing whirling dervishes is an otherworldly experience. You can see the dance in many places in Turkey, but some renowned spots are Hodjapasha, an ottoman Hamam and Galata Mevlevihanesi, a Sufi lodge. 

If you want to have the best time in the Land of The Four Seasons, don’t forget to add watching whirling dervishes to your itinerary on your luxury family holidays. 

A car ride across the high mountains of Kaçkar, Karçal, and Yalnızçam, and Lake Tortum Gölü

If you are planning a luxury holiday Turkey might be the perfect location for you. Aside from the typical travelling activities such as going to the beach or hiking in the mountains, you do a lot there. And driving across the High Mountains of Kaçkar, Karçal, and Yalnızçam, and Lake Tortum Gölü is one such experience that you can only live through in Turkey. 

Book a car and follow the narrow path by the riverside as gorgeous sights unfold before you. You will see a new view of the mighty mountains that will leave you mesmerised every few minutes. 

Hot air ballooning in cappadocia

Hot air balloon rides are undoubtedly romantic and perfect for your honeymoon. Of course, no set-in-stone rule mandates hopping on a hot air balloon on your lovey-dovey travelling trip. However, doing so will certainly make your time all the more romantic, and Turkey is the place for it.

While there are many incredible destinations to have a luxury honeymoon, Turkey is home to some one-of-a-kind experiences, and one of those is hot air ballooning in Cappadocia. You can do that in other places, but the view stretched before one’s eyes while riding a hot air balloon in Cappadocia is unmatched. 

Imagine watching the sunrise, spilling sunlight over the captivating ruins dotted with rocky hills in this part of Turkey – trust us, you don’t want to miss it.

Sleep in a cave hotel in Cappadocia

Another unique Turkish luxury travel experience is sleeping in a cave hotel in Cappadocia. Cave hotels are cosy lodges for people to spend the night and make unforgettable memories. They are quaint and medieval-looking, perfect for a romantic getaway. However, staying at a cave hotel is a fun experience to have, even with friends and family. 

Ethereal Mosques in Istanbul

Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque in Istanbul are worth a trip because of their incredible architecture. Even if you are not one to focus on buildings, you will appreciate the magnificence of these Islamic worship spots. 

The brilliantly-designed, ancient mosques are architectural masterpieces that you must see at least once in your life. Going to a mosque requires some protocol, primarily for women, as they have to cover their legs and, if possible, put on a headscarf. With the help of travel experts to plan your trip, you’ll also gain knowledge on the etiquette of the land. 

Besides all the mentioned activities, soaking in the hot springs of Pamukkale and discovering Turkey’s rich history in Ephesus are known for giving travellers unforgettable experiences. This means you can enjoy a host of things in the Land of the Four Seasons. That said, you need to plan correctly; otherwise, you might miss out on some incredible Turkish treasures.
