The diverse landscapes of Turkey won't fail to attract travellers of all tastes and preferences. The Mediterranean coastlines in Turkey are made out of golden beaches, some of which extend as much as the 18 km-long Patara sea front. While locations such as Bodrum, located at the southern coast may attract many celebrities and high-profile individuals, NOMADSofORIGIN would like to bring your attention to places such as Kemer - a dream-come-true for divers and the lovers of the turquoise sea water alike.
Regions like Aegean combine some of the most beautiful coastlines with olive groves enriched with the mesmerising, ancient Greek ruins of Ephesus. The area is also home to mountains risings spreading all the way by the Edremit bay in the north. Some of the region's historic towns date back to over three thousand years, located around Fethiye's lagoons, connecting with the Mediterranean, and the memorial site of Gallipoli from WWI. This would be the area that reminds of Turkey as it used to serve as a bridge between civilisations and continents, hosting part of the network trade across the Silk Road.
The region of Cappadocia attracts visitors through its fairy chimneys and sky views of hot air balloon travellers. The Turkish peninsulas, spread across the country's southwest coasts, create a kind of controversy in comparison to the mountainous scenery surrounding Lake Eğirdir. The country provides a great balance of nature, cosmopolitan scenery and nation that strives to preserve its traditional values and culture.
