The great English writer Mr. George Bernard Shaw is quoted as saying “Some look at things that are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?”
We believe the same can be said of those who have not had the grand opportunity to visit this land called Turkey. Please take a look see at what the Frommers New York Times Turkey Travel Guide article “Regions in Brief” has to say about our adopted homeland.
We are sure that once you visit here, you will agree with Mr. Bernard Shaw “…and ask why not?”
“Turkey really is where it all began. Although Greece gets the credit for having sown the seeds of Western civilization, for the most part this took place… on what is now Turkish soil. In Turkey…you have the opportunity to experience the absurdly rich cultural and historical mosaic laid by the ancient Greek, Persian, Selçuk, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires. Turkey…gives you the pearly sands of Iztuzu Beach, the turquoise waters of Lycia, the ski slopes of Uludag, and the thermal springs of Bursa and Çesme.”
“When all of the tourists left for Kalkan, the charming fishing village of Kas was left…The tourist infrastructure has remained, and you will find a quiet town dotted with a few Lycian tombs, a 6th-century-B.C. amphitheater, and lots of pleasant shopping. Kas is also the departure point for active excursions like kayaking, mountain biking, diving, and canyoning, as well as the must-do day trip to the sunken city of Kekova, which makes stopovers at the ancient village of Simena, now a fishing village of some 300 inhabitants. The nearby town of Demre lies shoulder to shoulder with the ancient Lycian city of Myra, and it was here that the bishop of Myra left his legacy and came to be known as St. Nicholas.”
