Out and About

Turkey is full of tradition, culture and a fascinating history, offering great beaches, many historic or natural places of interest, and a variety of leisure activities both on land and water.

So whether it's a round of golf, a traditional Turkish massage, a spot of sunbathing or taking in the marvel of an ancient site, Turkey provides you with the perfect combination to get the most from your holiday.

Out for Lunch!

Turkish cuisine varies across the country, with many elements influenced by the regions history and location. Popular and well known traditional Turkish foods include Meze (traditional Turkish appetisers), kofte (Turkish meatballs), doner kebab, kokorec (lamb intestines), borek (a flaky pastry stuffed with cheese, meat or potatoes) and gozleme (a savoury handmade and hand-rolled filled pastry).

Famed for the way it is made and served in tiny cups, Turkish coffee is a must try while visiting here. Another regular in the Turkish diet is yoghurt, which often accompanies meat dishes, vegetable dishes, meze, a speciality called manti (folded triangles of dough containing minced meat) and a popular drink call Ayran (pronounced 'I ran', a yoghurt drink whipped with water).

If you're looking for a meal on the go and wanting a change from the Turkish kebab try 'balik e met' the Turkish equivalent to fish and chips. It's made with any type of fish, which are first grilled or fried and then placed in a bread roll with onions; this is then washed down with pickle water.
