First things first you must visit the Turkish Bath on your 1st day. It is an experience in itself. Recommended to exfoliate the body of deal cells, and promote bright and shining skin, ensuring a better long lasting tan.

Ephesus is an ancient, preserved city and one of the Seven Wonders of the world and not trip to Turkey so go without a visit here.

Pamukkale is a visual mirage, resembling ice lakes, where as they are calcified waters. People come to bathe in the waters due to their healing properties.

The Virgin Mary’s House is believed to be the last residence of the Virgin Mary and that she died here. A beautiful retreat to visit, pray and ask for favours. Mass is held here most Sundays.

Markets is an ideal place if you love to shop and haggle with the locals. The Turkish people were born haggling and this is how they conduct their business, so they are professional at it. You will find lots of leather, gold, carpets, ceramics, clothes, shoes and spice.
