How to Travel by Bus in Turkey?

In this post, I want to reflect on my travel around Turkey last year. I was there for 5 weeks in total and I visited 8 different cities - Istanbul, Bursa, Izmir, Kusadasi, Aydin, Antalya, Konya and Ankara. I spent two weeks in two of Turkey's most popular summer resorts. Additionally, I explored Ottoman and Seljuk heritage and saw many wonderful historical sites that I've written about in my previous posts. ...

Is Turkish Food Healthy?

Is Turkish food healthy? Perhaps, the right question to ask and answer in this post should be whether the food that I had in Turkey was healthy and whether I made healthy choices. Truthfully, the same as everywhere else, it's not really the food in a particular country that's good or bad. It's what we choose to eat that's either good for us or not. But first, let's once again have a look at my ...

Museum of Anatolian Civilisations – Ankara

While Ankara is not as rich in history and historical monuments like Istanbul, there are several sites that you can visit there. Undoubtedly, one of them is the monumental Ataturk Mausoleum, dedicated to the Father of the Nation. Within the mausoleum, the Ataturk and the War on Independence Museum is the best place to learn about the creation of the modern Turkish Republic. But, another fascinating place ...

Ataturk Museum – Ankara

Anitkabir or the Ataturk Mausoleum, dedicated to the Father of the Nation - Mustafa Kemal Ataturk - is probably the most important place in Ankara. Within the mausoleum complex, apart from the Ataturk's tomb, the Ataturk Museum is what everyone should visit.

I don't want to get into too many details about Ataturk. There is already a lot ...

Ankara

Of all places that I visited in Turkey, I could've perhaps skipped Ankara. Although, within the context of my travel, it made sense to stop there. I was in Konya and I wanted to go back to Istanbul. One way to travel from Konya to Istanbul is by bus, via Ankara, and that's what I did. But, let me explain my earlier comment. Ankara is not a tourist destination, the way Istanbul is. It came to prominence ...

Ottoman Konya

In my previous posts, I wrote about the Seljuk heritage in Konya and also about the fascinating Mevlana Museum. But, there is also Ottoman Konya to consider, in addition to the history that existed there before it became an important Ottoman city. In fact, that was really the only thing that I knew about Konya when I decided to go there, during my travel across Turkey last year.

Mevlana Museum – Konya

There exist special places in the world, but it could be that we don't know anything about them. In my case, the Mevlana Museum was one of them. When I included Konya in my travel itinerary, I only knew that it was an important Ottoman city. Thus, it made sense for me to go there, because one of the reasons for my travel across Turkey was to explore the Ottoman heritage. I remember reading about Konya while ...

Seljuk Konya

Earlier this year, when I was making plans for my travel across Turkey, I included Konya because I knew that it was an important Ottoman city. But, I certainly didn't know that there would be one additional aspect to consider - I am referring to Seljuk Konya. I read about Konya on the beach in Antalya, because I wanted to find out more about the place that I was going to visit. That's when I discovered ...

Konya

After a week in Antalya, it was time for me to move to Konya, the next destination during my travel across Turkey. I was a bit sad to leave Antalya, because I enjoyed my time on the beach there. The inland places that I was going to visit during the next leg of my journey had neither a beach, nor a swimming pool, where I could cool down during the very hot summer days. But, that didn't bother me too ...

Antalya – Where to Stay and What to Do?

If you consider spending your summer holiday in Antalya, where to stay and what to do may be the first thing that you will ask, before you start making arrangements. Indeed, every time when we go to a new place, we may feel a bit apprehensive, although that's normal. We all want to have a good time and to get the best out of our holidays.
