TURKEY


A delightful mix of opposites make up the best parts of Turkish culture. Go from the exciting, crowded megacity of Istanbul to quiet villages in the mountains and along the stunning Turquoise Coast. Marvel at ancient churches and Christian mosaics from the Byzantine period, then be amazed by the hushed interiors and beautiful curves of Islamic architecture. Meet a thriving modern society that loves to talk politics and football, coexisting almost too nonchalantly next to the most priceless ruins from antiquity. Beyond all the east-meets-west epithets, when you travel to Turkey, what you'll come away with more than anything else is the genuine warmth and hospitality of the people. Save some time in your travels to be charmed, for example, by the simple pleasures of a tea glass in the hand and the wind in your face as you cruise between the European and Asian coasts of the Bosphorus.
