This week includes Turkey as a whole. I’ve already hit on Istanbul, but I received an email from reader Paul wondering how to spread out a vacation all around Turkey. The email stated: ”
“Turkey seems to be a good country to visit these days; their history, Roman ruins, beaches and islands; it’s an Islamic country that is relatively safe and secular and uses our alphabet, and the US dollar is worth more in Turkey than it has in over 10 years. I see you’ve done Istanbul, but we’re looking to travel in September all around Western Turkey for a couple of weeks. We want to see Cappadocia, Ephesus, and other historic sites, plus spend some time on the southwestern coast, islands/beaches, etc. I wonder what your readers have found as “must see” and “must avoid”, for a retired but active couple. Also, whether a tour or do-it-yourself plan is best.”
So let’s start out with a recommended two week itinerary of Turkey and then I will hit on all the major cities in the following weeks. If you’ve ever been to Turkey, let’s help out Paul and many Deals We Like readers who are probably interested as well!
