Turkey Trip Planning

Hotels are the most popular type of lodging for visitors in Turkey. You have a wide range of hotels to choose from, some that are extremely luxurious. Many of the hotels offer breakfast and most front desk personnel will be able to speak English. In smaller towns, the options for hotels may be more limited, but most still have a good variety. All-inclusive resorts are popular in Turkey, offering beaches, entertainment, pools and dining that is all included in the price.


Bed and breakfasts, or guesthouses, are usually located in great locations and provide you with the true feel of how life is in Turkey. They often have gardens and offer afternoon tea. The Turkish people love breakfast which means a bed and breakfast will provide you with an outstanding meal of cheeses, olives, yogurt, bread and more. Don’t expect any pork products like bacon as Turkey is a Muslim country.


In order to enter Turkey, you must have a passport that is valid for six months beyond entry into the country. You must have a blank page in the passport for the entry stamp and you will be denied entry if there is not. You will need a visa to enter Turkey which can be obtained by visiting the e-Visa application system. If you plan to fly while you are in Turkey, you must have an entry stamp in your passport. If you leave the country while visiting, be sure to get an exit stamp or you will have difficulty returning.
