Why to visit Turkey?

One of the most special element of Turkey’s beauty is its incredible beaches like the blue lagoon or the turtle beach.

This is the perfect time for British holidaymakers to visit as the British pound can now buy twice as much as Turkey’s lira as compared to last year.

While the Turkey’s president is emphasising more upon the need to convert dollars into lira, US has imposed heavy tariff over Turkish aluminium and steel.
