What is the Best Time of Year to Travel to Turkey?

When traveling for vacation, many people enjoy going to destinations during the so called “peak” weeks or at times when the atmosphere is lively. During these periods, there are usually festivals and other special events for tourists to enjoy. However, if avoiding crowds is an attractive proposition, and you are thinking about traveling to Turkey, consider going when the crowds have returned home. When you visit during these times, you will find that it is easier to get around. You can enjoy sight seeing, and all that the area has to offer without long waits and other issues that arise when everyone else is taking a vacation.

On a summer visit to Turkey, you can expect humid days and crowded public places, which can spell frustration considering what it will cost to visit during peak seasons. Travel experts recommend traveling to Turkey during the months of September through November. During these months, you will find fewer people and lower prices, both of which can result in a very enjoyable trip. The crowds can also be avoided during the spring, but the weather can be chilly, meaning that outside activities may not be as enjoyable as they would be during warmer months.5864819406_16aff02594_z
