Cost of Vacation in Turkey: Do you know that Turkey is one of the cheapest countries for a vacation if you’re outside Turkey? Yes,it is. Turkey is a country that is strategically positioned where east meets west. Istanbul, the country’s largest city, is split by the Bosphorus, dividing the continents of Europe and Asia.

About Turkey

Turkey itself is quite diverse, with some regions having a more European atmosphere, while others are more Middle Eastern.

It’s a great country if you want to venture into the Muslim world, but also keep a foot in the west. While Western Turkey has many fascinating mosques, it also has a large European population.

The eastern part of the country, however, is home to the Kurdish population and offers a unique cultural experience. The country’s coastal areas are strikingly beautiful along the edge of the Mediterranean.

They have plenty of hiking and sailing opportunities for sports enthusiasts, but there are also resorts, camps, and hotels or hostels for all types.

More Details

Whatever your travel style, don’t miss the opportunity to do a Blue Cruise, which is a popular tourist activity.

Traveling in Turkey is far less expensive than nearby European countries, but it offers many of the same comforts and luxuries.

As the currency continues to strengthen however, you can expect prices to get higher and many of the shockingly good deals will disappear.

Istanbul, in particular, is comparable in price to elsewhere in Europe. Food is quite affordable though, even in nicer sit-down restaurants.

You’ll find no shortage of dessert options anywhere in this country. Cakes and pastries are cheap, delicious, and ubiquitous.

Transportation options are abundant, but the large size of the country will tempt you to take a flight, particularly if your time is limited.

If you’re traveling by land and hoping to save some money, consider overnight buses. They are not exactly comfortable, but they can save you both time and money, and can sometimes make a twelve-hour bus ride fly by (or creep frustratingly slowly, depending on the comfort level of the bus).

Street food is your best option if you’re on a tight budget. The food is quite tasty and usually of high quality.

It is also a great way to experience the more traditional foods of the country. Street stands are abundant, particularly in larger cities such as Istanbul.

Highlights of Turkey

  • Buses are generally of high quality, but the trips can be very long because the country is so large. Overnight buses are a common option for the longest routes. This can help you save money and time but it you can’t sleep on the bus it will cause you to have a rough day after you arrive. It is possible to negotiate the price of a bus ticket. You’ll be more successful in some cities than in others. In Eastern Turkey in particular, negotiating is recommended.
  • Once you get outside of Istanbul the prices will drop dramatically. You can also negotiate the price of almost anything, particularly when you’re in the countryside. Even bus tickets and hotel prices are often negotiable.
  • Turkey has a lot to offer visitors who venture outside of the major tourist areas. Try to head to some of the less frequently visited towns and you’ll be welcomed with a level of friendliness you might miss in the big cities.
  • It’s easy to fill a week or more while you’re visiting Istanbul. It’s a beautiful city and there are many neighborhoods worth visiting that are off the beaten path and left out of the guidebooks. Plan ahead so you know everything that you want to see and do.
  • Many of the showers throughout the country are solar-powered. This means when there’s no sun, there’s no hot water. This is most common in the smaller towns and countryside. Even if you’re assured that there is hot water, prepare for lukewarm at best. You’ll find the water is warmest in the late afternoon on a sunny day.

Best Tourist Centers in Turkey

1. Aspendos Theatre

Aspendos boasts one of the best-preserved ancient theaters of antiquity. The theater of Aspendos was built in 155 AD during the rule of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius and could seat between 15,000 and 20,000 spectators.

Because the stage area was later used as a caravanserai (a roadside inn) in Seljuk times, it was continuously repaired and maintained.

Thus, the Aspendos Theatre has been able to survive to these days without losing almost any of its original qualities.

2. Pamukkale

Pamukkale

One of Turkey’s most famous natural wonders, the pure white travertine terraces of Pamukkale (“Cotton Castle” in English) cascade down the slope looking like an out-of-place snowfield amid the green landscape.

Although the travertines are themselves a highlight of a Turkey trip, the vast and rambling ruins of Roman Hierapolis, an ancient spa town, lie on the top of this calcite hill, providing another reason to visit.

3. Mount Nemrut

Cost of Vacation in Turkey See Best Tourist Centers

Nemrut is a 2,134 meter (7,001 ft) high mountain in southeastern Turkey, near the city of Adiyaman. In 62 BC, King Antiochus I Theos of Commagene built a tomb-sanctuary flanked by huge statues of himself, two lions, two eagles and various Greek, and Persian gods on the mountain top.

Since their construction, the heads have toppled from the bodies and lay scattered throughout the site. The summit of Mount Nemrut provides a great view of the surrounding mountains.

The main attraction is to watch the sunrise from the eastern terrace which gives the body-less heads a beautiful orange hue and adds to the sense of mystery of the place.

4. Blue Mosque

Blue Mosque

With its six minarets and sweeping architecture the Sultan Ahmed or Blue Mosque in Istanbul impresses from the outside. While still used as a mosque, the Blue Mosque has also become one of the most popular tourist attractions in Istanbul.

It was built between 1609 and 1616 and like many other mosques contains the tomb of the founder. Inside the mosque, the high ceiling is lined with the 20,000 blue tiles with different patterns that give the mosque its popular name.

5. Hagia Sophia

Located in Istanbul, the Hagia Sophia was originally a basilica constructed for the Eastern Roman Emperor Justinian I in the sixth century.

A masterwork of Roman engineering, the massive dome (31 meters or 102 feet in diameter) covers what was for over 1000 years the largest enclosed space in the world.

The church was looted by the fourth Crusaders in 1204, and became a mosque in the 15th century when The Ottomans conquered the city.

The Hagia Sophia was converted into a museum in 1935 and is now one of the top attractions in Turkey.
