Turkey: a beautiful country for a wonderful holiday
What makes Turkey so attractive to our compatriots? How do our compatriots choose the route for summer holidays in Turkey? Someone flips through advertising publications in Turkey, someone asks colleagues who have already experienced summer travel, someone comes to the first available travel agency … But there are few options that you can use to choose a place of refuge for two summer weeks ? However, regardless of the search methods, many of those who want to relax inexpensively and comfortably, sooner or later find themselves on the southern coast of Turkey. Why do our compatriots enjoy their vacation in Turkey so much?
If you try to present this country in the image of a man, then a portrait of a beautiful girl with an open and cheerful character, subtle and sensitive kind, sociable and hospitable, beautiful and caring hostess would approach Turkey. Democratic views would be combined in it with the worship of Eastern rules and traditions, and outward simplicity – with mystery and mystery. She, as a heroine of oriental fairy tales, could tell the story of her life where legends and legends intertwine. She – many-sided and changeable. She is a warrior amazon, or a meek oriental beauty. Turkey is very different, so you can go there infinitely and every time make for yourself big and small discoveries, learning the culture, traditions, customs, enjoying the acquaintance with historical monuments.
Relax on the southern coast of Turkey today offer almost all travel agencies. And it is clear why: in this country you can spend holidays for all tastes: beach or extreme, educational, health, business or ecological, individual or group. We can safely say that in recent years, Turkey has become for our tourists a kind of replacement for the once-familiar Yalta, Anapa or Sochi. It is very easy to go to Turkey: a visa is issued right at the airport and costs only $ 10. But the prices and quality of service are strikingly different from the health resorts of the Crimea or the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus built more than a decade ago.
However, the reader who is in a hurry to rest does not need lyrics, but specific advice. And today we want to help Russian tourists understand the variety of offers and options in Turkey that are available on the market.
Where does the rest begin …
What are the specifics of the tourism industry? It lies in the fact that the proposed “product” can not be touched, and its quality is evaluated by each tourist very subjectively. And this assessment depends on a huge number of factors: age, cultural traditions of the people, concepts of comfort, habits, well-being, finally. In other words, for each of us, the concepts of “rest” and “comfort” are relative. In order to make the trip really enjoyable, it is necessary to clearly define for yourself what we expect from the upcoming holiday. Therefore, when choosing the airline, the location of the hotel, its category and form of food, do not lose sight of its main goal: a beach holiday, or diving, or excursions. Not forgetting, of course, about the amount you are willing to spend on your vacation. Although Turkey is so good that a variety of options allows you to bring your desires and opportunities as close as possible.
Turkey – the country of hotels
Let’s try to determine the place of residence, depending on the purpose of your trip. In other words, we will choose the hotel that suits you from the hundreds of options offered by Russian travel agencies today. Considering the colorful catalogs of tour operators (which, by the way, can be obtained free of charge at tourism exhibitions or at representative offices of major tourist companies), you understand – that is truly Turkey – the country of hotels. They are here for every taste and wallet. However, even the best directory can not convey the most important thing – the atmosphere prevailing in the hotel, the hospitality of the staff. Do not get carried away with “fortune-telling by the stars”: many hotels treat the notorious “stars” quite freely. Most often this applies to the so-called low-category hotels, which “draw in” extra stars for greater importance. There are also generally anecdotal cases, for example, the Rose Hotel is two stars, and is advertised as all inclusive. At this point, wait for a catch: either this all inclusive comes after 23.00 and only for some local beverages, or the sun beds will be paid.
In general, the classification of hotels in Turkey complies with generally accepted international standards. And five-star hotels resemble a self-sufficient town with the necessary infrastructure for a full-blooded life: night clubs, bars and restaurants, hairdressers, shops, fitness centers, swimming pools and even transport (often in hotels occupying a large area, for example, in the Adora Golf Hotel in Anatolian coast or in the hotel “Letuniya Club” in Fethiye ply small electric cars). However, it also happens that in a five-star hotel there is not a single balcony (Turtel Hotel in Kusadasi) or hot water supply is limited.
