Time for Turkey
It’s a little hard to know where you stand with Turkey. Part Europe, part Asia and part the Middle East, Turkey is a blend of each of these regions and yet entirely a culture all its own.
You need only visit Istanbul, Turkey’s capital, to see the country’s complexity. Attractions like the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque hint at its traditional side, while Istanbul’s nightlife shows off its cosmopolitan side.
Beyond Istanbul, don’t miss floating over Cappadocia in a hot air balloon and sailing the Mediterranean in a traditional gullet.
