Turkish Delights: Top Three Family Excursions
When travelling with children, booking excursions isn’t often on the to-do list, with many families happy to relax by the pool and enjoy afternoons on the beach for the duration of their break. While the excellent quality complexes and beautiful beaches provide everything that kids could want from a holiday abroad, sometimes, an excursion or two wouldn’t go amiss to break the week up. With Turkey holidays, there are plenty of must-see sights and family excursions on your doorstep, wherever you choose to stay. Take a look at some of the superb options and consider adding one to your itinerary.

  • Ephesus may date back to the 10th Century BC and it may be full of incredible heritage and architecture, but that doesn’t mean kids won’t love a visit too. Spend your time exploring the ruins of this ancient city, which was once one of the largest in the Mediterranean. It’s located near Selcuk, in the Izmir Province, perfect if you’re staying in or around Kusadasi.
  • The Grand Bazaar may not be recommended for very small children, because it’s absolutely huge and very busy, but older children may like the experience. As one of the largest, covered markets in the world, this superb delight of Istanbul is home to thousands of shops and stalls, selling everything you could ever want to buy from your stay in Turkey.
  • Pamukkale, located in the south of Turkey near Marmaris, is a huge collection of hot springs that is both incredibly beautiful and apparently possessing healing properties. Now a World Heritage Site so that others can appreciate the marvel in the future, kids will enjoy the magical experience as much as the grownups.

Of course, if all else fails, locate your local waterpark where your children will be as happy as Larry for the day. Break up your holiday with an excursion and see what Turkey is all about, beyond the confines of your chosen resort.
