A holiday to Turkey has emerged as one of the top choices for people looking for the same mix of reliably hot sun, stunning beaches, great holiday facilities and a tangible sense of history that have made Greece and its islands so popular over the years. As an ancient gateway to the eastern trading routes, Turkey provides an intoxicating blend of culture and cuisine - so even the most committed lover of a full-English breakfast will be enticed to try some of the tasty regional dishes.

With five thousand miles of coastline it's no surprise to find some fantastic resorts - and we've got superb bargains for all of them. From the Dalaman and Antalya regions on the Mediterranean to the Aegean holiday resorts around Bodrum - a Turkey holiday is a must for anyone who appreciates the full mix of experiences when they head overseas.
