Turkey

As a country historically standing with one foot in the Orient and another in the West, Turkey’s well-established footprint in both cultures gives travellers an unendingly fascinating mix of culture, art, cuisine, architectural wonders and ancient traditions. Enjoy a luxury, candlelit hamam at the skylit and storybook-windowed marble baths at the Ada Hotel in Türkbükü outside of Bodrum. Follow in the wake of the Argonauts on a Bosphorous boat ride past stately wooden houses and enchanting Ottoman domes. Drink tea with locals in Istanbul, or bliss out on a hot air balloon ride over the cliffs, valleys and ravines of Cappadocia.
