The two major monumental and most regal attractions, Bursa and Edirne, nestle with grandeur facing each other from either side of the Marmara Sea.
Another noteworthy attraction for which Turkish landscapes are revered is the Asian Anatolia, where the breathtaking Mediterranean coastline steals the show while Cappadocia's 'fairy chimney' rock formations and wavy valleys hold a magical profundity that goes unrivaled. There are endless ways to praise the astounding beauty of the Ottoman Empire, be it its outdoor adventures’ adrenaline rushes or its culinary delicacy, the diverse land of influential culture is a magnet for people yearning for finesse. The Turkey tour packages are diverse enough to suit the needs of both wealthy and not-so-wealthy travelers. If you have a knack of exploring the unknown and mindlessly getting lost in a foreign land with no limited touring sites, then Turkey is your go-to place. Moreover, you would always find delicious Turkish specialties to caress your appetite after a long day of exploration.
